Hi Fachad,

Wow, I have too much to say on this one. I'm also from the Bible belt. I was not raised in a fundamentalist home, but had lots of exposure to it (Baptists, Pentecostals, Bible cult fringe groups, etc).

I think the worst thing I came away with was a morality that we're just here to do "right" or "wrong" and then be judged for it (judged by other people during life, judged by God after death). That's it, no sense of what really makes people do what they do, what they really need, how to find happiness or fulfill potential.

It took 3000 miles distance and hundreds of therapy hours to dislodge this bleak vision of human life from my psyche.
