As an ex-fundamentalist Christian, one of the things I miss most is that sense of community and being amongst like-minded people. However, in coming out I also realized that I'm a lifelong humanist and am excited to now explore that part of who I am!
Nice to meet you too, David. I look forward to more conversations at more events.
Thanks for the welcome! I'm at law school out-of-state right now but will be back in MN for summer work starting in June. looking forward to events!
Thanks, David. I appreciate the warm welcome!
Welcome, David! I never feel any pressure to be a certain kind of atheist when I'm attending an event; we're all at unique points in our journey. The de-conversion stories vary greatly even among former Fundies, and there are many in this group. Looking ahead, I'd recommend attending the Flying Spaghetti Monster fundraiser--good food, great conversation, and a GREAT cause--ours!
Thanks David :)
Welcome to the Former Fundamentalists Meetup group! I came out as a de-convert with my family a little less than a year ago, so I know what you are going through. I think you will find some like minded people here to share ideas, challenges, struggles, and triumphs with.
Welcome David! Looking forward to meeting you. Would love to know more about your Evangelical Mennonite experience, for starters. Hope this group provides some relief from the pressures of leaving the fold.
