What we're about
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 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. Don't let people convince you that you just didn't have 'enough' faith, or that you just haven't found the "right" religion.
As Mark Twain famously said, "Faith is believing what you know ain't so."
RR is made up of people who have all given religion our best shot, but we can't bring ourselves to accept the unacceptable any longer. If you've ever questioned the archaic edicts and laws of holy books, the inconsistent morality and questionable motive of ancient teachings (along with their many modern interpretations); if you've raised an eyebrow to virgin births, or found the flaws in resurrections, bronze age "miracles" and the ridiculously misguided “power of prayer;” then Recovering From Religion is the place for you. We are recovering from every imagineable religion: Baptists, Mormons, Catholics, Jehovah's Witnesses, Hindus, Muslims, Lutherans, Pentecostals, Evangelicals, and many more. We are happy, we are healthy, and we warmly welcome you to a life free of the confines of faith.
