    I grew up in a home where we attended church.

    It was that way until I turned 11 y/o. My parents went through a spiritual experience when I was 11. When I was 13, I took my relationship more seriously. I haven't regretted it either. I have a personal relationship with Jesus.

    So happy the brainwash is gone.

    Christianity is complete bullshit. Christians are incredibly hypocritical. I hate Christianity. One of the biggest reasons that I hate it is because it shames people, particularly women, for sex which is ridiculous. Sex is natural. Everyone does it, but oh if you do it...

    I didn't like it. I did

    when I was little but as I got older my parents' beliefs and how it formed the way they did certain things seemed so ridiculous. The rules were weird and weren't beneficial to anyone. And it seemed like it was just a really controlling tool. Of course I knew my parents were...
