  1. Hello, my name is Greg and I live in Rhode Island. A few months ago I started a website of deconversion stories (www.FallingFromOz.com). It's not loaded with strident rants, just individual stories from folks like you and I. I'm not using it for any monetary gain whatsoever. I just felt frustrated with the current state of things and wanted to do something positive. It's my humble attempt to further the dialogue.

    In a few short months the site has had close to 7,000 visitors from 56 countries. I thought members of your group might be interested in reading what others have submitted or contributing their story. If so feel free to visit: www.FallingFromOz.com

    I love seeing young people so engaged. Keep up the good work. We need to move toward a more rational world.

    Thanks!
