I was molested when I was little and have had a very hard time dealing with it. It was only through the grace of Christ and the love of the church that I have been able to build myself up again and restored my self esteem. You would have me throw that all away for an empty life, no hope, and nights of screaming nightmares. For that I can only shake my head at your ignorance and pray for the salvation of your soul.
I would never want to try and tear away from anyone a community or belief that has helped them in time of need. I do not ask religious people to give up their faith, only to look at their faith with an open mind. I also fear that you have a misunderstanding of atheism – an atheist life does not need to be bleak, hopeless, or empty, and I would not have you suffer without your faith and offer no healing alternative.
It must have taken great strength for you to recover from your horrible childhood experience. I commend you for your strength and hold in high regard those who helped you in your hour of need. I also thank you for your concern for my soul, but reassure you that I lead a full, happy, giving life and am not in need of assistance.
