I recently read a book that really resonated with me called "Lake of Fire," by Kate Gale. I first bought it because Dr. Gale grew up in a "commune" that was only a few miles from my house in the '80s. It was called the High View Church Farm, but we locals all knew it as the Jolly Farmer. They had a restaurant and gift shop, and my family used to go there to get ice cream on hot summer nights.


Little did I know how much I would identify with a good number of the feelings Dr. Gale recounted as an independent child just trying to follow what was taught as "god's law," and eventually feeling depressed and dejected and sinful when we couldn't measure up to what the adults expected of us (which was nothing short of perfection from a religious standpoint).

It's a great book and I just thought I'd share. It might even be mentioned elsewhere on this site for all I know.

I was homeschooled under this curriculum while my family attended a cult. Go figure.

When I saw rickross.com was no longer available, it broke my heart. And then I found this site. (Rick, thanks for keeping the fire burning.)

Almost 30 years have passed since I last sat in my office at Land o'Lakes Christian School doing PACE work. "I need to see you in my office." Every time the principal came up behind me and sternly uttered those words, Nothing else mattered. Nothing in life to look forward to. I felt like the world might as well have been coming to an end. I knew I was gonna get a paddling. And for about 20 mins while he had me standing in his office while he pointed out why I was wrong and why I would be getting a paddling. The emotional abuse was worse than the physical paddling. YEAR SIX (1982 - 1983) They brought in this one dude who had me paddled at least 8 times within about 6 weeks. I stopped counting after 8. Once I had two paddlings in two days. Back to back. And they shamed me every paddling. Two adults against a kid.

Since moving to NJ I got burned by other churches. When I was going through my divorce the pastor of the last Baptist church I was attending un-friended me on facebook. That's a modern day slap in the face.

Still today, when my supervisor tells me, "Can I talk to you for a few minutes?" I still get this feeling of impending doom. Like I'm gonna get fired or something like that.

Religiously, I am floundering around like a sheep without a shepherd. But then I came to the conclusion that all protestant churches are wrong. Because they split away from the Catholic Church. Nowhere in the Holy Bible (KJV, Bee-otch!) does it say it's ok to split up the Bride of Christ. In the Garden of Gethsenamie, Christ prays that his church to remain as one.

It makes no sense what I'm doing here. Because everybody blasts the Catholic Church. Up until about 1000 the Catholic Church was the only church. The Orthodox Church split, mostly for geographical reasons. And then in 1500 Martin Luther caused a split. Today there's about 40,000 non-Catholic sects in existence. And each one claims to hold the truth.

So where am I gonna go? To Catholic Church?

Maybe this belongs in a different forum.
