Although the social deprivation I knew in the sect I grew up in was not as severe as yours, I can relate to your experience. Thank you for sharing. Good writing!
Wow, what a story! Amazing what man can twist in the name of religion. I grew up in the Baptist Church and we had a few, such as no guitars in the service-only piano and organ.

Thanks for sharing.
I felt such a sadness when I read this. You did a great job pulling me into your story. Well-done!

This was a nicely written story of another sad account of a sheltered past...and religion gone awry. Stories like this make it obvious why some people want nothing to do with Christianity. So glad you have been rescued.
