Wow! I went trending... Thank you for all of your welcomes everyone its so nice to meet y'all.
Still a little unsure of exactly how to use this but heres a little survey, if you're an atheist now, where you brought up believing in god?
I was brought up in the Episcopal Church. My parents stopped going to church when I was quite young, but I kept going. I loved church. I was baptized, confirmed, married, and ordained as a priest in the same church where my grandparents were married. I was an Anglican priest for 21 years. After living in India for 5 years and questioning the mythology of Hinduism, I came to realize that all religion, including my own practice, is all mythology. I am a very happy atheist now.
Yes and no. I grew up in Salt Lake City around the Mormons. My parents divorced early and I was raised by my mother who was a Congregationalist. She didn’t push religion, but there was immense pressure in the community and school to confirm. I just didn’t.
