I was asked recently why I do what I do. My answer included the fact that I suffered from religious trauma. My whole life from my youth, through college, and ministry, until I finally defected, was pursuing a ruse, a farce, a chimera of uselessness. I felt betrayed by a delusion, wondering what I could have done with my life instead, and still do.
