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.
Joy, I'm going to feature this in the Front Page Showcase for the week of October 3. Look for it on the FaithWriters home page--and congratulations!
