     OP - November 26, 2014, 07:45 PM

    I am new here.  I have recently left Islam in my mind and heart, but as of yet I haven't come out to my family.  I converted to Islam 20 years ago when I was 18, married, have a decent marriage, and now 5 children.  I would love to announce to everyone that I am no longer Muslim, but I am worried that if I did my husband would divorce me and take my children. (The youngest is only a baby).  My husband is a good guy overall, but for this one unfortunate aspect.  I figure I can live a lie for a while, until my baby is older.  In the meantime I am looking for ex-Muslims who understand where I'm coming from, that I love my family and my muslim friends( who don't yet know my dark secret), and that I reject Islam.  (I wrote it out in my journal that I rejected the Islamic faith and signed my name to it.  It felt great).

    Other than that... I love to write fiction, I am learning German, I have a BS in Biology (which started my questioning and doubting 15 years ago--I tried every excuse I could to reconcile Islam and reality), and I am learning to play guitar.  And I am very grateful to have found this place.

    Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
    there is a field. I'll meet you there.

    Thanks for the welcome everyone.  I've been reading through the forums off and on, and I love the community--and the irreverence.  It occurred to me that I should probably make my severance official by partaking in some fruit of the vine, and maybe a bit of bacon (my vegetarian self is really wondering if I'll do it).  I did eat a Rice Krispie treat from Halloween--not to mention my actually participating in a pagan holiday-- so perhaps that counts.

    As for my name--if it is the name of a goddess of destruction, then it's very apt.  Lucky I thought of it.  But it really stems from my paranoia of being found out. 

    Hopefully I will be able participate often--it kinda depends on my houseful of kids. 

    Thanks again!  Smiley

    Hey, welcome, you sound like a lovely person. Like Thomas, I can certainly relate to some of what you fucking say.

    Forgive my language btw. I'm currently listening to Run the Jewels, and they are pretty gangsta. I fear they may be affecting my muthafuckin language though. Word out.

    Hi Carlie, a warm welcome to you.  far away hug

    There are lots of people here who cannot truly be themselves at home, so you're not alone. At least here you can say what you feel and that helps.

    It's good that you can still enjoy music and literature in your life. I grew up in a home where these were basically banned, so hopefully you and your children are not being overly restricted  Smiley
