Other Ex-Believer Sites

Recommended Posts

A good way to learn about yourself is to learn about others.


In that spirit, I propose we accumulate links to websites where other religion's ex-members gather and talk about their experiences in life after faith. As we all post links to these sites, I will collect them all here in the opening post as a running list.


I'll start by listing the one I know of:


Update: I added a few more I found.

Update: as I search for these, I try to only list sites that have some type of section where former members tell their stories.

Update: some incredible stories in here of suffering and triumph...

Thanks! That is quite a list. I've been bookmarking loads of interesting sites that are no longer "the devil" anymore.

As I read through these links I am coming across amazing stories from amazing people who have recovered from amazing trauma. It's really unbelievable.


Here is the painful story of how the Peregrin Foundation came to be, http://www.perefound.org/phist.html

I tried reading some of the stories on the ex-Scientologist site. They were difficult to read because of all of the specialized references to different classes and levels. It really is a whole complex culture. Amazing. That didn't take long to form, huh?
