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.

One thing I have noticed is a tendency to "doubt" my new path in life. I still want to reach for the Bible sometimes. I still hesitate somewhat when someone mentions Pascal's "Wager"...LOL! Even though I know that science teaches this and that no…Continue

Last night I was reading Seth Andrew's book, Deconverted, and I almost fell out of my chair when he discussed being forced to watch the end times film from the 1970's call "A Thief in the Night."  He described some of the scenes, and I had a…Continue

Friends at Secular Sexuality, I am happy to announce the official launch of my new podcast, Secular Sexuality. This is like no other sexuality podcast. I deal openly with all sorts of issues but most importantly, I hit religion and religious sexual programming head on. The first three episodes are up now with two more up soon. It is available on iTunes, Spreaker and soon on iHeart Radio. Please give a listen and let others know and please rate it on iTunes. I think you will find it unlike any other sex and sexuality podcast.

Thanks all, glad you found The Thinking Atheist discussion useful.

Thank you for writing about this! I believe no one who leaves religion can ever say he's truly free. We're all recovering unless we've had the great good fortune to have been spared religion.

Darrel, thank you for your information on sex on The Thinking Atheist.  Very much enjoyed it.

Thanks, Darrel, a great interview.

I was on The Thinking Atheist last night. We really got into things like how to talk to your children about sex and the bogus notion of sex or porn addiction. If you or someone you know, believes in sex addiction, listen here. It is only a figment of the Christian imagination and their sex crazed guilt.
