Dr. Dawkins,

Thank you for writing 'The God Delusion.” As a 24-yr old raised in a Protestant family and attending Christian schools my whole life, I never thought I'd be where I am today. While the questioning began before reading TGD, this book proved to be the catalyst for my apostasy. It has been the best decision of my life. Life has become so much more …palatable…clear..understandable…Unfortunately, I still struggle with the parasitic influence of religion, and the concomitant feeling of guilt on occasion as the remnants linger in my mind. It's difficult to completely jettison something one is raised in. I must be patient..For only through rational, logical steps will I prevail over this. I know that Humanism and reason are what I want. Thank you for helping to open my eyes. If anyone knows the name of that woman who helps recovering christians get over their guilt,etc that Dawkins mentioned, I'd be grateful.

Thank you again,

Jordin M.
