Unlurking, possibly.
Hey folks. I've been lurking here for a bit, and figured I should finally say hi. So, hi.

I just deconverted over the summer. Was raised Southern Baptist, then for the past few years have been attending an ELCA church. The husbandperson (raised Assemblies of God) and I had slacked off on church attendance after we got married, but we went back after reproducing. Sigh. Anyway, we both managed to - completely independently - realize/decide we are non-believers within a few months of each other. A few of our friends know, but no family members yet. Telling my parents would be bad enough, but his parents are both missionaries and pastors and that's not a conversation he's ready for yet. We also live in Texas. Yay, Bible belt!! Those difficulties aside, we both realize how really freakin' lucky we are that we're on the same page about this.

So that's that. Not sure how much I'll really have to contribute, but I've enjoyed being able to come here when the bible verse memes and prayer requests get to be too much on Facebook and the like, so thought a quick intro wouldn't go amiss. Smile

G'day mate, and welcome. Smile

Just take it easy, and partake as much or as little as you feel comfortable with. We're all pretty easy going, and please don't be afraid to ask any leading questions about deconversion/religion, and/or atheism.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

Yay! Glad you decided to come out of the shadows and you have already made a contribution by introducing yourself.

Welcome former fellow Baptist and de-lurking one!

Need to think of a witty signature.
