After posting this story, I found a deconversion story that was impressive. I’m posting some here. Go read the rest at reddit.com:
We’ve been married over 6 years, been living together for about 10, we have a daughter who is about to be 3.
My wife grew up in Brooklyn as a Catholic, attending catholic school, mass, etc. While she isn’t active in practicing she does occasionally go to confession and we had to attend a catholic class before we got married (not by a catholic priest BTW) and before the baby was baptized, (not my choice but what is a little water?)
I always played the lazy reluctant when it came to anything religious, not wanting to rock her boat but not wanting to suffer hours of preached insanity ether. So I always avoided church and the issue with her.
Until two nights ago.
We were bored and had recently gotten a copy of The da Vinci Code for $3 when a local blockbuster closed, so we put it on. I have always been a history buff, particularly religious history, so I was pointing out the billions of incorrect assertions and the few correct legends etc. when she stops the movie and goes right to the topic I feared.
