Recovering from Religion


Recovering from Religion

Unless you were raised by atheist parents, you probably had some recovering to do when you left religion. The purpose of RR is to provide a landing place for people when they jump from religion. With local support groups throughout the US, Canada, UK, and Australia, and real-time resources accessible to everyone, RR is where to turn when faith has lost its luster.

I think back at times to my youth in Roman Catholic grammar School. The thing those grim beings of the Dominican order were trying to inculcate was the mistaken notion that a collective sock puppet owned everybody's process.

@Mike K. Hey yeah, I took that abstinence-only/wait-till-marriage approach myself. It had its place before birth control technology came around, I'm sure. Can't say I'd recommend it now though.

Shereen, I join others in welcoming you to the "other side" of faith. My book, Life After Faith, was written for people like you, choosing the creative, positive path forward beyond the gods of the imagination.  Be well.
