Former UPCI here, as well.
My step-family has its roots in Azuza street, so you can imagine how hardcore it was. When I "backslid" - or, more accurately, deconverted, we all pretty much gave up on each other. I haven't set eyes on any of them in over five years. My brother, also an apostate, is the only family I still speak with.
I'm not opposed to skirts, but I do love a good haircut.
