Recovering from Religion March Meetup

Come on out, unburden yourselves of your religious hang-ups, and laugh or cry over the stories our members tell. It's very cathartic, almost perversely enjoyable.

Our meetings tend to be small, so everyone has a chance to share or bring up any topic of personal interest. You never know who is going to show up, but whatever happens is always an enjoyable surprise.

Hope to see you there!


About Recovering from Religion

Leaving religion is full of potential problems, both emotional and practical. How will I tell my parents and extended family? How will this affect my marriage? How do I break the news to my religious friends and what if it disrupts the friendship? How to deal with child rearing issues? Who can I talk to about my feelings without being told, “You just need more faith.” (as if the problem is simply that not being gullible enough.)

Recovering from Religion talks about all these and more.

If getting out of religion is important to you, RR can help you navigate the new world of satisfied skepticism. Through local support groups, we offer the opportunity to explore the negative impact of religion in your life, without judgment. We can help you get connected to the many folks who, just like you, are embracing a life beyond faith.

    Met three new people last night, with three very interesting stories. I am always amazed at how kind, patient and accommodating non-religious people are of the feelings and opinions of the believers around them. I think we understand how important their "personal" relationship with a deity is, and this influences how we behave/react. However, the same cannot always be said of believers. For numerous reasons - many of which allow them to feel superior and (mistakenly) motivated by love - they continue to defame us in their minds, to our friends and family, and in their places of worship on a weekly basis. We have considered the evidence, have reached a different conclusion, and for this we are regarded as immoral and hedonistic. The facts prove otherwise, as we reminded ourselves last night! Thanks everyone for sharing so openly and honestly. I hope you stay close to this community that really wants the true you.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
