    I recently told them I felt sorry for them because they have wasted their whole lives in this religion. My father pushed me physically out of the room and told me I was a horrible apostate, and I am fulfilling bible prophecy by ridiculing him.

    Seemed appropriate somehow.

    I know it feels a shity time for you, but your not alone in this, there are other people hear that will listen if you want to blow some steam and rant and rave and you're bound to find someone thats been through the same shit.

    Glad I could make you smile. Stick'll find that happening a lot here...along with tears, outrage, and laughing so hard you spit what you're drinking on the screen.

    I definitely feel I was a victim for 40 yrs. I was raised a witness and knew nothing else. In 1975 I began thinking for myself and got df'd in 1980. I sure wish this web sight was around then. Thanks slugga for the tip on editing a post, it works.

    I'm 37, and except for the difference of a few years, our lives were paralleled. I didn't realize there were so many "young ones" who were still walking this path of dropping out and pioneering... What's pathetic is that many many adults can't recognize that this is 20 years later and we're still not a step closer to the Big A.

    I'm in Fresno if you ever need to talk. PM me.

    It's a good thing to see you here.

    Hey bud, welcome to the board! I know that pain too. It's gotten a lot better for me and keeps doing so; life is just brilliant now. Hang in there, try new things, and learn about yourself...

    Hi Jonathon

    venting can be a good release, there are many people who understand what you are feeling.

    Best wishes
