were you raised by fundamentalist charismatic christians?
Advertisements [?]
my niece and nephew were raised by my brother, the wacko bornagain maniac. home schooled, and 'protected' from the outside world and public school. the boy grew up normal and is getting married soon and is very well adjusted, but only after he deliberately de-programmed himself. i don't get to talk to him much. although he loves his parents, he'd have rather not been raised that way.

my niece however has a lot of problems. never married, never dated much, desperate for attention and seeking out those like her. she's a missionary who travels the world's poorest nations to spread the gospel. no man is good enough for her, so she's lonely. she has never had a real job, only missionary work, which is practically slavery.

were you raised by well meaning bornagains? was it a good or bad experience?
