Ok, to be fair, I was never much of a christian anyway. I often wondered why, I had a lot of whys actually, maybe that was why, my pesky curiosity.
Why didn't prayer work? Not just for me but for anybody.
Why weren't other christians joyful?
Why didn't preachers ever want to answer my questions?
Why did christianity resemble a pyramid scheme?
Why was history ignored in lieu of apologetics?
Why was the bible a singular source and in some instances and churches, only one translation was encouraged?
Why couldn't we discuss the missing books? There are a few you know, I knew this because I'd read much older bibles in my childhood than the ones generally available now. They included Enoch, I knew the full stories about the 'Angels' from the age of 4.
Why were logical questions met with "you just have to trust god", every single fcucking time?
Why was I called a daemon for asking questions? I mean, if this "god" character made me and loved me, one of 'his' precious children, the way I am, why would my natural born curiosity, make me a daemon?
Why are so many children abused at the hands of christianity?
Why are so many women abused and demonised at the hands of christianity?
Why have so many people been murdered at the hands of christianity?
Why do christians lie so much, even to themselves?
I know why, it's because it is bullshite indoctrination. The lot of it.
The christian cult, is not only a brainwashing deceptive cult but it is the biggest, most pervasive and viral brainwashing deceptive cult in the history of mankind. Bloody hell, they even demonise thought and glorify the concept of humans being cattle.
AND THEY MAKE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS DOING IT.
Humans are magnificent and divine. Because of christianity, this fact has been not only forgotten by the masses but practically obliterated.
I've been sucked into many many religions in my multiple lives in one and basically think they're all hokum, blarney and pure bullshite but christianity takes the cake and like the others, much as I tried and really wanted to believe in something higher and nobler than the destruction of humanity, it did not take.
I can talk to my self just fine without believing in invisible fictional characters.
Admittedly, I wasn't much of a christian, I was kind, well read, inquisitive, skeptical, honest and mostly laughing, especially when away from other christians, but why am I no longer a christian?
I don't like being lied to and I am not cattle, additionally, I was never comfortable with the notion of believing fictional characters to be real and honestly, Buffy would be a much better deity.

Why I am no longer a christian.

Part 2

What I witnessed in my childhood has had an effect on why I am no longer a christian as well. I'd love to be able to honestly say that I was never a christian to begin with but sadly, I cannot.

Not only was I a christian, but I was a christian twice. Once through childhood indoctrination and once as an adult, due to preying on a vulnerable state. That's how they get you, when you're vulnerable.

My mother dallied with a few religious practices in her lifetime but her foundation was christian. She was very devout to the christian 'god', so much so that the only reason she didn't abort me was because her church told her it was a 'sin', even if I was a daemon. I know this because she told me. When I was four years old. Now, due to my not being able to imagine saying such things to a small child, I used to blame my mother for this, as well as other religious based abuses that no amount of praying caused any 'god' to intervene.

But was she really to blame?

Her childhood was pretty nightmarish too, my maternal grandparents fled Germany for Brasil, my grandfather was a devout catholic and a drunk who thought nothing of beating the shit out of his wife and children and even indulged in raping his daughters. Of course he went to church every Sunday. He left my grandmother for a younger woman eventually, which I'd have thought was the best thing that ever happened to her but she descended further into madness and religious fervour.

My mother used to leave me with my grandmother when I was little, to go on holidays with my ever loving christian pedophile step-father and my little brother. I was far too demonic and troublesome to take along. I remember being with my grandmother, as far back as four years of age and she loved me, I loved her, she didn't hit me. She hugged me. I adored her for that. She also made me get up at dawn, put a veil on, and read her many bibles out loud by candlelight. Then pray. Then at night, she would tell me stories of angels and demons. I liked Stephen King better by the time I was six, better written and by then, madness, terror and horror were good friends of mine.

Another thing had occurred by the time I was six, I believed that there was no 'god' and thought that if there was, he hated people, especially women, little girls and me. Praying was useless, for everyone.

Because religion was made by men and for men. Women are immaterial.

Because the old testament is filled with God ordering the murders of people for stupid shyt.
