Haha, I actually did come here from my email.

I always want to post on Atheist Nexus but get side tracked with other stuff, and then of course I forget about the site completely. I really MUST become active ; )

Wow, I am amazed to see over 80 members! I've lost track of this site for far too long and never expected to see this place take off. You guys are awesome.

Hi guys!!! This group is awesome. I am doing an anthology of people leaving their religion.l would like a catholic story to be included as well 12 pages give or take is ideal. I want a  story of how a devout pious catholic "saw the light"

What do you think of the Church's opposition to having to offer birth control coverage to employees? There is a lot of discussion on our local tv stations' facebook pages. There are a lot of Catholic women who are posting that they agree with the church. I thought that was interesting, since I have seen studies that say 98% of Catholic women of childbearing age use birth control. I hardly know any Catholic families with more than two kids, so someone is lying here...

I'd like to introduce anyone who is interested to a cool and funny book I worked on as a freelance editor and which is now out on the market. The New Revised Catechlysm is a parody of the old Baltimore Catechism, and of the Catholic worldview in general. It'll be appreciated especially by ex- and recovering Catholics but will also appeal to students of religion (and no religion).

There's more information on my website at this link. Please understand that I derive no income from sales of this book--I was paid for my services, but I loved the project so much that I want to help it become a big hit for my client. I'm also thrilled with the end product, which I saw today for the first time.

So please take a look. It's the perfect gift for the lapsed Catholic (or even still-Catholic-with-a-sense-of-humor) on your shopping list, and is available in print and ebook formats.

Thanks!

This news item is a bit dated, but I thought it might still be of interest:

Eewww is right, Jeanne!  Now that I think about it, it makes me wonder what those celibate "men" were doing on the other side of the screen in their own dark box.  Now, all the religious garbage seems sooooo weird!

Hi Mark and please accept my apologies for not replying sooner! I credit my sons for my deconversion :) They actively sought out information about the falseness of religion after getting nonsensical answers from their high school religion teacher and priests. I questioned for years, but pushed those thoughts aside as 'bad.' Now I see those thoughts were perfectly normal and healthy.

Welcome Paula. I too am grateful for my cathoic schooling making me the atheist I am today.

I am proud to have raised two atheist kids too. Only one went to catholic school and only high school.
What was your reason for deconverting?
Comment by Paula T. on November 16, 2010 at 7:06pm
Another former catholic here! I spent twelve years in catholic school, but thankfully, we didn't attend weekly mass. I was skeptical for years, but pushed those thoughts aside - I was 'bad' to have such thoughts, right? My sons, now 24 & 21, attended thirteen years of catholic school, but both considered themselves atheist before they graduated from high school. I'm grateful that I taught them to think for themselves and question - that all rubbed off on me and I was finally able to admit to myself that I don't believe all the religious BS. What a free feeling :) Looking forward to past threads here!
