Rachel replied to Cesar Deicide's discussion 'Question About A Religious Arguments Regarding Sex'
"I honestly see no issue with a man masturbating to either visual or mental images of women. If he's heterosexual, that's what arouses him. It's natural. Why should there be a problem with that? What of women who masturbate to mental…"

Rachel replied to Sagacious Hawk's discussion 'What Makes Us Human?'
"I'm pro-life, but for non-religious reasons. I find that abortion itself is usually unnecessary, violent, inhumane, and often downright barbaric. We, as a society, need to advance ourselves past the need for such things with better education,…"

"I have no advice, I'm afraid. I can't say I've ever really been in a situation like yours. But I did want to say that my heart goes out to you. I have some small idea of how this must be feeling for you, but can never truly know it. I…"

"The cross itself is not necessarily Christian. I can't think off hand what sources the cross has come from in religions other than Christianity, but what little I do recall is that it has multiple meanings, depending on which religion it may…"

Rachel replied to Meg Fields's discussion 'Morals based on Christianity?'
"Just because Christians follow basic morals doesn't mean they thought it up. Lying, murder, stealing, and anything else our society today considers to be illegal or dangerous makes up the general list of no-nos in pretty much every culture on…"

Hell. Hell. It's always Hell!

My separation from Christendom is relatively recent. At least, the more public end of it. I've entertained the idea of letting myself accept I no longer believed in any of the gods described by humans in any religion at any time in history for quite some time. I can't discount there could be some god or another somewhere out there. But I really doubt it.The reaction to my rejection of religion has been about what I expected. It all came straight back to Hell. I am no stranger to this, as the…See More

About Me:
I'm very happily married. I have been living in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota since 2007, but was born and raised in South Mississippi (the Bible Belt). I work a boring job, have cats and cockatiels as pets, and otherwise live a mundane, contented existence.

Why are you here?
Tired of religion. Don't believe that God, should there be one, is anything like what the world claims he/she/it/they is/are.
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
After years of horrible things happening to me, and no help even though I begged and pleaded for some kind of scrap of relief, my faith was critically wounded. As I got used to the idea of rejecting religion and the God I had been raised to believe in, I became more and more comfortable in my new outlook on life, the universe, and any kind of god.
