Just recently realized that I'm both atheist and gay.....
I'm 38 and single...never been married....for a while recently I thought I was bisexual....but I was only in denial and self-loathing and felt miserable and horrible.......so yesterday I talked with someone on the lgbt hotline and I took a sexual orientation test online...the test results said that I'm gay.....And at that moment I came out of denial.......but I felt shocked.....I'm still in the closet with my family and friends about it... And I also discovered that my Mom just might have always had NPD...narcissistic personality disorder...I don't live with her anymore...she's 61 and her Dad died earlier this year...She has a boyfriend....
So that's where I'm at right now...I was raised baptist by my Mom and I even lived in Mexico as a missionary for about 8 years in my 20s. Then I tried evangelical and nondenominational churches for a while and even a lgbt friendly church for a few months....Then finally I became Catholic...and even thought about becoming a monk or a priest....But I had a lot of dkubts and questions in my mind....and btw...I never really believd in hell....so as a catholic I was a universalist..,but at the same time I noticed that the catholic church is always asking for money.....and they seem to snub poor people....and then going to confession just started to seem dumb and silly to me...,especially about masturbation and porn....and the masd is beautiful but borring and hypnotic....and nowcI consider myself to be a recovering catholic...

Welcome to a safe place. Glad to have you.

Check out my now-defunct atheism blog. It's just a blog, no ads, no revenue, no gods.

RE: Just recently realized that I'm both atheist and gay.....
P.s. I find that I still pray mosy because the lady I take care of is catholic....so I go to church with her and pray with her....I'm a live in caregiver.....and as far as my deconversion goes....Seth's book and podcast have helped me alot as well as memes on Facebook....and Guy P. Harrison's books and darkmatter videos on yiutube have all helped me out alot in my deconversion process....Recently I realized that I also really dont believe in heaven either....that was a hard thing to let go of....but the truth is that I really don't know what happens after I die....

So I'm still in the closet though.... But I feel free and liberated now....and more comfortable in my own kin....and living in reality....btw I can't stand Joel Osteen or Joyce Meyer..,,they're fake and frauds and conartists.....

Welcome to TTA. You will find acceptance and even friendship here.

Hi there.

Do you desire the opposite sex at all?

If not, that is cool.

If you do, then you may be bi.

Either way I don't care and will happily support your choice.

So I have to ask since a situation like this rarely comes up: from which closet does it scare you more to emerge from?

"If we are honest—and scientists have to be—we must admit that religion is a jumble of false assertions, with no basis in reality.
The very idea of God is a product of the human imagination."
