Recovering from Religion


Recovering from Religion

Unless you were raised by atheist parents, you probably had some recovering to do when you left religion. The purpose of RR is to provide a landing place for people when they jump from religion. With local support groups throughout the US, Canada, UK, and Australia, and real-time resources accessible to everyone, RR is where to turn when faith has lost its luster.

I just got finished reading The God Virus.  I now have a much better understanding of why otherwise rational people would believe the most outlandish of things and continue to follow people that have done horrible things and committed heinus attrocities.  Great job!!!


P.S.  I've completed the Sex and Secularism survey.  Keep up the good work!

6,112 people have started the Sex and Secularism survey and 4,103 have completed it for a 67.1% completion rate. That is fantastic! The survey will close on Jan. 30.  If you have not completed it, please do. We are especially interested in hearing from women, LGBT people, and those who have been secular all their life. Please let all you secular friends know about the survey.Survey

Sex and Secularism Survey We continue to get a huge response on the Sex and Secularism survey.  The international response has been very surprising. About 20% of respondents are outside the US.  We are interested in all responses no matter where the originate. Thanks for participating. If you haven't taken it yet, please do.  The survey will close on Jan. 30.  See the link:

Thanks for the heads up, L. Hunter. Alabama's new governor almost makes our Texas Governor Rick Perry look good by comparison. Note, I had to say "almost."

This governor has made his position known!!!!

I guess you are now resurrected! Congratulations, you are about the 10th or 20th person to do that in all of history.  We may start worshiping you soon! Can I be the treasurer?
