Ex Fundie = ex Christain?

    Do people believe that being an ex-fundie is tantamount to being an ex-Christain? Seems thats the generalisation of many.

    Can't someone be an exfundie and yet remain a Christian...?

    I'd consider myself an ex-fundie, but not an ex-Christain.

    Awww Brummie, being an ex-fundie is not the same as being an ex-christian! There are fundie's out there of every sort and they must all be stopped damnit! I guess I am the non-fundie agnostic sort though so take my pacifistic ways and ignore them...LOL

    Unfortunately, IMO, it appears that way. I don't think it should have to be that way. Being a Christian does not have anything to do with the mind numbing activities of the cults like JWs and Mormons, but it all too often turns the ex into a total non believer. I believe the cult leaders will some day have to answer for this.

    I think what happens when you leave a fundy cult is that you tend to swing so far the other way that alot will lose xtianity. I tried to come back to xtianity after a few yrs, or atleast give it another look, but it just doesn't work for me. I consider xtianity to have been originally part of Judaism, with a dash of Zorastrianism and Hellenic Greek philosophy, and those elements are not my ancestry or heritage. It feels wrong to me to try to force myself to adopt a belief system that is foreign when my people had their own. But I am not anti-xtian. I am anti-fundy(and that goes for any kind of fundy, not just xtian ones). I actually did become Roman Catholic, and I do attend mass from time to time when I need to feel connected to the rest of the world like around holidays. I can honor it as a belief system, but it is not my primary belief system.

    Not at all - "let your yes be yes and your no be no" - commonly, ex-fundie = christian
