A lot was also happening offline, simultaneously, not sure that some of you will ever know what a comfort you were to me back then. I got a little of my much missed fearlessness back and outright rejected my ex husband who tried to put the moves on me since I was well and had lost the weight I’d gained in pregnancy and illness [it was one of the things he used to verbally abuse me about and yes, I allowed it] then I outright rejected christianity, which led to my children being kidnapped [I had legal custody and yes I still do] by their christian family. When that didn’t work out for them, they tried to have me commited but I was quite healthy by then, mentally and emotionally if not physically, so that failed as well.
I had enough. I stood the fuck up and I left them. I took my children and what I could fit in a SUV, leaving everything else behind and I simply just fucking left. With only a couple of hundred dollars to my name.
Since then I’ve rebuilt our lives, on my own. It was scary and it was hard, my mom had died, I had rejected “god” as well as “his people” and I felt all alone in the world. Yet as I discovered on my “journey”, it was one of the very best decisions I had ever made.
Now, everything is better and exactly as I wanted. Of my own design and creation.
Although I know I did this myself, I know that the only one that could save me was me, I am still grateful for the support, the knowledge and the reminders that I received right here. Y’all know who you are and I thank you for being a part of my life.
So why am I no longer a christian? This is a question that I’ve tried to answer in many different ways and none of them quite fit but now I know.
I was never a christian to begin with. I was always an Atheist.
And there’s not a damn thing wrong with that, most of the ones who stood by me regardless of my shenanigans, beliefs and confusion; are Atheists. Nobody needs religion or imaginary beings to have a loving heart. I know I had one either way and I know that I always will. That does not mean I have to allow others to hurt me or that I have to sacrifice myself.
Flights of fancy, rainbows, pixies and buttercups are fun and all but at the end of the day, reality is infinitely better. In all its ups and downs.

:p
I really enjoyed your story. I would like permission to share it with my students. You represent the millions that have come out of the delusion of organized religion and the bible and I’m glad for you. My story was a bit different, but the end result was the same; I am no longer a Christian.

By the way, please forgive waaasssuuup, for he knows not what he does. He’s just another insensitive Christian prick that consistently proves the hypocrisy of his cult.

Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful.

Thank you and of course you have my permission, that's what it's there for and the stories of others helped me.

Louisville, Ohio. It's just east of Canton - and the Football Hall of Fame... the capitol of the worshiping the stars of sports and rock-and-roll. Since most here are Catholic, it must by a symptom of loosing faith in their Church doctrines - both Catholic and Protestants have shown themselves to be disciples of Paul - not the Christ.

what's the matter. Ms. Grinch - is it that your shoes are too tight or that your heart is 2 sizes too small?:-)
One of my old favorites is the 'parable' of the cave dwellers. One freed himself, saw the real light outside their darkened existence, went back to free them, and they all turned back to darkness because they couldn't stand the light!

This is exactly what Jesus said about those who cannot come to his light - the loved the darkness more than the light because their lives were based in darkness (rejecting the instructions from God)

This forum is called "Why I Am No Longer a Christian" which is the topic of discussion. Since you are still a Christian, I don't see how it applies to you and your Christian friends. You must be really desperate coming here trying to evangelize atheists and agnostics. Who are you trying to convince, us or yourselves? Unless you are here to examine the evidence presented by those who have seen the light, you are certainly wasting your time. Exposing religion for the fraud it is certainly warrants a serious discussion.

"History I believe furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a free civil government. This marks the lowest grade of ignorance, of which their political as well as religious leaders will always avail themselves for their own purpose. "
