Some people will believe anything. We call these people 'Adventists'.

Welcome anyway, that is just so long as you don't give us any flack for our Vegilinks vs. Big Franks debate :)

To be candid, I am not a former Seventh-Day Adventist, but Dorris posted a note here that I was interested in responding to so...!

You can always wait for tomorrow, but once it's done there's no taking it back. If you have any doubt about the timing, you should put it off. The time will come when you will either have nothing to lose or the potential loss would be greatly outweighed by the gain.

If you do go through with the sermon I would be happy to look over any notes you have. As a warning though I will be leaving for Yellowstone on Thursday and will have little connectivity throughout the weekend.

Dustin's advice was much more sane than mine. I don't think the situation has changed much although, if you're still in school, a laptop is a big deal financially. If you think there's a significant chance that you'll face problems financially because of family removing their support, I'd recommend not coming out until you're supporting yourself. Not sure what "writing examinations" means exactly where you're from, but if that's graduating from the last of school, you'll be out on your own shortly afterwards. Be safe.

Chickened out :( ...well, not exactly. Two things happened: I discovered early yesterday morning that one of the elders had chosen to swap sermon slots with me, so I've been rescheduled for next sabbath. Later in the day I was so tired from staying up late preparing for the sermon that I just didn't have the energy for a confrontation. I'm still trying to figure out if I should tell everyone as early as possible or wait, do the sermon (which I think would go a long way towards softening the blow) and then tell them afterwards, or if I should even come out at all. I have some..."investments" to think about - an allowance I don't want taken away for not tithing (though I don't do that even now - one of the first resolutions I made after losing the faith was never to give money to any religious organisation again) and a new laptop that was promised me I don't want to e denied out of fear I would "misuse" it...

Good call.

Thanks for the encouragement and advice. Dustin, you've given me a bit to think about and I've decided to hold it off until tomorrow evening - this to avoid leaving my mom with an empty DS slot to deal with (she's responsible for scheduling preachers). I've decided to go with this sermon: http://www.apibs.org/sermons/sglcc960206.htm , expanding particularly yet subtly on the first point of the conclusion. I'm still coming out though. I'm just holding it off to avoid looking like an asshole.
