Need advice on coming out to my spouse

Started this discussion. Last reply by Michael Black Dec 27, 2012. 9 Replies

I was a Protestant, a sort of evangelical, but not dogmatic in the sense of being intolerant of others. I married a Catholic. Now, five years later, I've shed any remaining pretense of religion for…Continue

Two Cult Survivor replied to David Stephens's discussion So, how did you do it?
"I'm still not completely out. A brother and a cousin know. My wife does not, although she and I have had some recent discussions about how Adam and Eve is a myth, Noah's ark is a myth, and in all likelihood, Exodus is a myth. We attend a…"

Two Cult Survivor commented on Two Cult Survivor's blog post My first funeral as an atheist
"Well said. And let me add that I am not really upset with my brother. I am upset at how religion has robbed from him the recognition that we lost something really great, for good. Hate the religion, not the religious. "

Two Cult Survivor commented on Wyatt's blog post Theists, Cargo Cults, and Logic
"They mistake logic with internal consistency. If you show a theist that his views are internally inconsistent, you will have some measure of success. He will make a good faith (ha!) effort at modifying his views to make them more internally…"

Two Cult Survivor commented on matthew greenberg's blog post War on Christmas in May
"I'm the one who should be apologizing. I'M the one who went off topic. Your message had something to do with Christmas, Debra/Brandi. Also not my job to police whether others go off topic. "

Two Cult Survivor commented on Larry Taylor's blog post Death of a family member
"There's a part of me that coulc not care less whether these people "meant well." The executioners of the Inquisition "meant well." Doesn't make what they did any less atrocious. Granted, telling Larry that mom's in…"

Two Cult Survivor commented on matthew greenberg's blog post War on Christmas in May
"I love how the WBTS (one of the two cults I survived) has quietly dropped its claim that the "new system of things" will be ushered in "before the generation that saw the events of 1914 passes away." Flipping lying liars. Nothing…"

Two Cult Survivor commented on matthew greenberg's blog post War on Christmas in May
"I get offended by anyone who gets offended by "happy holidays." Yes, it's primarily Christmas. But other holidays are being celebrated, too. Now, I will not be offended if someone wishes me a Merry Christmas. But if I say happy…"

My first funeral as an atheist

I posted the bulk of this on another thread, but wanted to add some context separately.I finally confronted my faith and embraced the fact of my atheism late last August, 2012. Days after I revealed my "epiphany" to a few friends who knew me from another message board, my sister died from Lou Gehrig's Disease (which pissed her off because she hated catching a disease from someone she never f---ed).THAT was my sister, understand? She was a beautiful, life-loving, potty-mouthed extrovert who…See More

Welcome, Rafael! Glad you could join us. :D

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that's on your mind, Hang With Friends. You might also like Parenting Little Heathens.

I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since the climate is changing so drastically. Florida is especially vulnerable.

After you've searched for topics of interest in "Groups" above and in the "Forums", don't forget to look at recent activity which hides along the right margin of the page all the way at the bottom.

Hello Rafael
Welcome to this world of rationality, truth and peace, where common sense and science lead to freethinking wisdom which is the essence of atheism. Here, you have found the perfect place for friendly atheists.
We invite you to join the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Astronomy, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Gods, Atheism, Evolution, Darwin..." with 700 discussion topics and 3600 members.
