We are not messed up. We just have a clearer, more personal understanding of the oppressive nature of religion. We must lead the backlash against our non-thinking heritage.

Thank sensible people for seeing the need for this forum. I am still struggling with personality disorders brought on by my parents' emotional neglect and abuse.

Physical abuse, a TON of mental abuse, and good old fashioned medical neglect in the name of gawd.

I'm with you guys. It's been exactly 30 years since I last set foot in my church, and I've been experiencing a little PTS, after all this time. Just found out that fellow classmates have this darkness and hatred towards the school too. Not just the beatings, but the psychological stuff, too.

I think there's a tradition in my old religion of ritualized sexualized corporal punishment/humiliation. There's a lot of messed-up people because of it.

I think it was because he is fixin to go to court and be locked up for a long time. Also to tell me he was disappointed for me not sticking by him on this.

Why would he write the letter for you? Does he want your forgiveness?

I am a bundle of nerves right now. I just received an e-mail from my half-brother talking how he's given his life back to the lord, and he has found forgiveness. What makes this so hard to stomach, this was a letter he had sent to his friend from jail for her to email me. He has admitted to 8+counts of child molesting. He grew up in a strict xian home. I find it disturbing that he can do these things to children ask for forgive ness and be forgiven in the xian church. I feel that a god that would stand back and watch this happen to a child is a sick fuck whom I want no part of!

Oh, it's happened to me, too.

There's all kinds of psychological abuse in my house, and there has been abuse in the past.

And everyone but me is a fundamentalist Christian. EEP.

I got slapped around by my Baptist preacher dad quite a bit... usually with a scripture soundtrack.
Literally interpretations of the bible can be dangerous for kids... for realses.
