I made up my mind when despite praying to god to help my dying mother, she passed away due to a genetic disorder (pernicious anemia) that was left untreated because she refused to go to the doctor until the last minute. Since then I found out I have the same disease, but I am receiving treatment. Anyway long story short I decided then and there if there really was a god, he wouldn't let people needlessly suffer like my mother did.

Another factor in my conversion to atheism was my lifestyle. I am gay. My boyfriend comes from an evangelical family and they were none too pleased with us. Me especially. They have texted me and called me on numerous occasions telling me I am going to he'll and I am at fault for turning my boyfriend gay. So Christians and I do not get along to well.

I hope to make some new friends here and to have a good time.
Welcome! Loved your story. I will never forget watching the movie on Netflix "For the Bible Tells Me So". It was another nail in my old christian coffin. Great flick. Highly recommend it. I imagine you would identify with it entirely.

Keep us updated on your life and story. May you continue to find peace and love.
