Just to introduce myself. I am an Apostate from Roman Catholocism. At one time I was a Catholic apologist and seriously considered entering the priesthood.
I majored in Philosophy and minored in Religious science in university.
After I had children and just couldn't get the babies to sit through mass, I found that without the constant reinforcement of being in Church every week, my faith waned. Now, years later after wandering about in the desert of my own mind and exploring many different faiths, I am an avowed atheist.
I have recently "come out of the closet" and started being vocal about my atheism to friends.
