I'm an ex-evangelical who first went to school in 1988, during the self-esteem movement. Because of self-esteem, I felt strongly that I was just as good, if not better, than any boy. I was hurt by and felt rejected by my family's religion because I noticed that all the important people in the bible were men. God was a man, Jesus was a man, the disciples were all men - you get the idea. For a child who wanted to know exactly why women weren't presidents, this was not okay.

I had doubts from the time that I was able to think critically, around age 8. A lesson on prayer requests is what taught me that there was no God. If I prayed, the answer would be like a stoplight, yes, no, or maybe. A light went off in my little brain that the same things would happen whether I prayed or not.
