"Steph, it is the same battle as the black struggle. Us vs. Them mentality. I suddenly feel a real sense of despair at this point. I fought long and hard in the black struggle and I doubt that I have what it will take to take on these…"

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.See More

Disney: Fairytales and Bible Stories

Posted on May 1, 2014 at 9:00am 1 Comment

I like dreams. I enjoy dreaming. I love fantasizing about far-away worlds where I can fly, be all-powerful, and make everything happen if I just believe.

And so did Walt Disney.

And so have the millions of children that have attended his theme parks, viewed his movies, and watched his plays each year. I suspect that most of these children have loved dreaming, fantasizing about far-away worlds where they could fly, be all-powerful, and make everything happen if they just…

My dream was about the attractiveness, the longing even, to believe in God. It is an incredibly emotional response, and something I know to be the result of so many years of indoctrination that my mind and body still react to.

In my dream, I was attending a funeral for someone — I’m not sure who — and my friends and family were surrounding me at the…
