I had the pleasure of meeting some folks from the Recovering From
Religion group at one of the after parties for the Reason Rally.  The
way Teresa was treated by some of her former parishioners was
absolutely appalling.  The atheist community came to her support and
showed her more love and compassion than any church member.

A few months ago I shared my own deconversion story on youtube and I
have been humbled by the responses from others who have come out of
faith as I did and have felt alone through the process.   I was a
pastor's kid and a volunteer missionary and lived a life of faith for
25 years.

Here is my story:

WOW, Tim!  Thank you for sharing!  If you sent this before, I missed it, and I regret it.  I admire your eloquence (no notes, even!) and will get back to you.  Please come to Nittany Freethought and/or the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in State College and meet lots of Kindred Spirits.
