    New here, and though an Atheist since the mid 80's, I was brought up as a Catholic, became an unbeliever in my teens, only to then get seduced into a cult called Divine Light Mission, which I broke free from in 1985, becoming a secular Humanist.

    Welcome! Quite a mixing pot here (Was about to say melting, but we don't do that very often) Mostly friendly folk.
    Almost forgot, though I believe it goes without saying: DON'T GO IN THE BASEMENT!!

    Welcome!

    Hope this won't come across as disrespectful, cults fascinate me. Anyone can become a prey to cults. I don't know if you ever plan to do so, but I'd love to know more about your experiences, the cult but also you leaving Catholicism.

    Welcome, and much of the same... Though obviously, I took a turn. :D

    Anyway, hopefully I'll see you in the debates section. Don't be afraid to post. :D
