Getting Through : Dealing

Who this site belongs to.

My point of view about why people that are not ex-members of the cult The Family, but from other religions, are posting articles on this website.

Ok. First let me tell my story of how I got on here. Then I will make my conclusions.

It was a day when I was feeling down. I started to get this feeling that I had to find someone who shared the same problems and challenges and was willing to talk about their experience. So I got on the Internet and I typed something like "people messed up by religion". When I first entered the site I didnít know what the hell it was about exactly, but I found an article from a guy who talked about how his **Christian religion** had played a very important role in messing him up. I started finding articles about some guy named Ricky and didnít have a clue of who he was. I even saw his video.

After a couple of clicks I understood exactly what this website was all about: A place for people who had been part of a cult called "The Family" (sounds like The Godfather huh?): A very liberal religion where people fucked each other all the time, sex was glorified and whole lot of other crazy beliefs.

Ok, as an ex-Christian, I didnít want to post any articles on a website dedicated to people from The Family right? I decided to check the site and see how many articles were posted by people from other religions. Results: Plenty.

So I said: hell, why not? After all this the only site I found that had what I was looking for: people going through my same situation.

See, no matter what religion it is, it can mess you up. Just compare the articles from "other religion people" with the ones from "The Family people" and you won't find many differences.

So with that said, I will now get on with posting my articles on how religion fucked up my life.

Cheers

Hey! thanks a lot eyeswideshut. Its good to have some support here. I like what you said about the fundamentals of the mess being the same, very well said. For the others who might feel offended or uncomfortable for my presence on this site I apologize and hope that you will understand what eyeswideshut already does.
By being on this website I dont pretend to be part of the ex-family members, because, I am simly not, I only pretend to find some sympathy on what I am going through. Remember, the details about what happened to us in our religions will never be the same, but the outcome or the result of that process is very similar.

Welcome indeed. You're absolutely right. The fundamentals of the head fuck are the same the world over. Don't listen to the few who will not welcome you. They haven't been out long enough to realize how very average we are.

BUT there `s a shared and restricted code here that you can only manage after spending some time within the cult. otherwise i don`t see it easy to really understand what really happened to us
