  1. On this week’s episode of Deconversion Therapy, Bonnie and Karen discuss the fateful missionary trip of John Chau, a zealot young missionary who was killed by a remote tribe in late November of 2018. Then they recount their bumbling efforts of ushering people into the kingdom. Thanks for all your support!
  2. Wow. This is great. Great perspective. I'm friends with the disabled journalist Trump made fun of--he feels the same way every time he sees himself as a meme, so I see where you're coming from.
  3. I totally agree. I should reword it to make sure people know we're trying to show up the ignorance, and danger, or the church by highlighting stories that are ridiculous. Thanks for saying that.
  4. If there's something the two straight hosts of our podcast have in common, it's the number of post-church gay friends we have. Most of them were in the closet, even to themselves, back then. If you have a 5-minute funny story about being gay while in the church (no matter where you were in your own realization), please send it to us to read on the podcast. We always appreciate new listeners, and we take all kinds of true, funny stories. Here are guidelines and where to submit. Podcasts are now on Spotify, so you can just ask Siri or Alexa to play Deconversion Therapy, or listen at the above link. Thanks!
  5. We'd love any listens, rate, reviews, and shares of our new comedy podcast about leaving religion. This episode was about the movie Jesus Camp. Truly horrifying. You can find it on most podcatchers--iTunes, Stitcher, Spotify, or listen at the below link. AND we're always looking for funny stories about being in the church! Deconversion Therapy. https://deconversiontherapypodcast.com/
  6. We covered the movie Jesus Camp on our comedy podcast about leaving religion, but I haven't watched it. I've made a vow I will, although I know I'm going to be horrified. Anyone seen it or want to watch it and comment? You can even write our podcast with your own funny camp stories.
  7. The support here has been great. And our audio is getting better. Praise, Zeus. We are always open to new subscribers and short, funny letters to read on air. Go to the website to submit or listen.
  8. Thanks, @Lerk and @offtheromanroad! Yes, OTTR, I miss singing, too. Good point.
  9. Thanks for the warm welcome and insight on why I can't quote! Ha!
  10. I'm trying to find out how to reply to each person, but no luck so far. But I really appreciate all the support.
  11. Hi. I'm Karen. I now live in Tennessee, surrounded by all our old favorites--Amy Grant, DC Talk guys, Russ Taff, etc. In the nineties, I was a missionary with YWAM (what a cult!) and then was in Thailand with Asian Outreach. Some of the Thais I was witnessing to had questions that made me really want to get deeper into my Bible, even though I went to a Southern Baptist college and did missionary Bible training. That's when I saw some confusing things I just couldn't deny any longer. It was about a ten-year journey (fear of hell is strong!), but I'm out. Now a friend and I have launched a humorous podcast about leaving religion. We'd love for you to subscribe, rate us, and send in some of your own funny stories. https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/deconversion-therapy/id1438032991?mt=2 Website: www.deconversiontherapy.com
  12. An ex-evangelical missionary and an ex-christian friend launched Deconversion Therapy. It's for those who left, those who are still in, and those who want to know more about what the hell goes on in the church. We are looking for short, true, funny stories to read on the podcast. Go to www.deconversiontherapy.com to see guidelines and to submit. Follow us on Instagram and twitter by searching for Deconversion Therapy. We NEED followers and raters. We want to add something new and needed to the conversation--a way to laugh at it all. https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/deconversion-therapy/id1438032991?mt=2
