This is the story of how one man was raised in a fundamentalist, Christian cult -- the Worldwide Church of God (Armstrongism) -- as the son of a pastor, later leaving organized religion, and then came out of the closet as gay after marrying a womanMoreThis is the story of how one man was raised in a fundamentalist, Christian cult -- the Worldwide Church of God (Armstrongism) -- as the son of a pastor, later leaving organized religion, and then came out of the closet as gay after marrying a woman and having three sons (and remaining close friends with his ex-wife). He learned along the way that cults and closets come in many forms. He shares his story in hopes others will find the courage to liberate themselves and support others in the process, and ultimately find true peace. One reader wrote: “…captivating and hard to put down…his book has a wide appeal to a variety of audiences, including clergy, lay leaders and youth pastors, as well as therapists, social workers and clinicians. Those who are interested in cults, extreme religious fundamentalism, spiritual abuse and abusive institutions or systems will find the book useful. Finally, anyone -individuals, parents, spouses– struggling with issues of sexual orientation will find the author’s story not only helpful, but inspiring and life-changing.
