Have you let go or are letting go of your faith and want someone to talk with about it? If you are one of the many people who have determined that religion no longer has a place in their life, but are still dealing with the after-effects in some way or another, Recovering From Religion (RR) may be just the right spot for you.
Many people come to a point that they no longer accept the supernatural explanations for the world around them, or they realize just how much conflict religious belief creates. It can be difficult to leave religion because family and culture put so much pressure on us to stay and pretend to believe the unbelievable. If this is you, we want to help you find your way out and support you to keep the faith off.
Don't let people convince you that you just didn't have 'enough' faith, or that you just haven't found the "right" religion. RR is a support group that focuses on you, and your journey.
We have two basic topics: How has religion hurt you? How has your life improved since getting rid of religion? We do, of course, talk about many other things as well even if it's just to find another group or to point you in the right direction!
We never charge to attend any events. Come by and meet other people who are just like you!
