No, because I haven't been paying attention either...but they are around here somewhere.

I think they're hiding out until after the election.

Theofrak keeps posting articles about how fucked up the Mormon church is.

By the way, Hope, you'll soon see how random we can sometimes get. Bear with us, we usually mean well. Smile

Sadly we have no porn section, so she can't bare with us Tongue And some of us do mean well. Why just the other day Vosur was torturing KC gently...

RE: Intro
Welcome! I can tell you as someone who has been a recovering religion addict from some years ago, one of the best things I've done is find some like minded people local to me.

I struggled with a LOT of things as I made the change over.

- Depression
- Conflicting feelings
- Loss of friends and family

I felt betrayed by people, they treated me very differently when they found out. I've lost some very good friends over them simply knowing I'm an atheist, when we were friends since kids. I learned very quickly who my real friends were.

On top of that, I was really depressed on and off, mostly about coming to terms with reality and dropping my beliefs. I even felt like I was perhaps betraying my own beliefs as I left Christianity for a while. People tried to guilt trip me, tried to make emotional appeals and it was SO tempting to just go back into my comfort zone.

Now looking back... I don't think I could ever go back to religion. I don't see it the same. I can't possibly look at it the same, think about it the same or rationalize it the same. I feel so much better thinking for myself and realizing I'm in control of my life and not some sky daddy watching me masturbate and watch me eat, take a shit and everything else I do.

Coming to terms with death was also a bit of a struggle. But when my view of life changed, my view on it changed to, no longer afraid of it, or concerned about it.

Every time I talk to my family, I sort of feel like Rod Taylor when he gets off the time machine and people are just blindly following along. Or when he asks people about where they find their books, and the books start falling apart. He just sort of looks around and goes, "What's WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?"

Don't worry, Hope. You are not alone, you're NOT the only one and it's fine Smile It is OKAY to be an atheist.

Welcome!

Eeesh, that's scary as hell...

Hey there, Hope... I'm pretty new, so welcoming you here would be rather presumptuous on my part, but I still hope you enjoy your stay and find the support you need to deal with what must be a very messy and difficult situation.

On the upside, things do get better after finally getting rid of religion and admitting to yourself it's a crock (the biggest there ever was, too).

Hopefully you can share your experiences with the Mormon church with us. I don't recall an ex-Mormon joining TTA within my time on here.

Can you get me some awesome magic Mormon underwear? And do they come in different size ball sacks, cause I'm gonna need the smaller version.
