From meetup and from Bernie.
Born into fundamentalism. Found the dogma collided with my humanist views of people, especially in the arenas of women's rights and other human rights. My escape from fundamentalism had great repercussions and fallout in my life: loss of religious friends and alienation/loss of family. But "For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring." (thanks, Carl Sagan)
Feminist, freethinker and former fundamentalist...wow, a lot of f-words...
