@stefanielovesjamie:  Gotcha! I went to school with two sisters who must’ve been denominational. That is literally the only thing I know. lol

What are the core beliefs that you grew up with?

@vorpalette:  Girls that cannot cut their hair and have to wear long skirts are not neccesarily pentacostal. I grew up in a community similar to what you are describing and that could be anything from LDS to just really strict christian denominations.

Are your parents still in the church? How do they feel about you being atheist?

@stefanielovesjamie:  A long time friend of mine had a similar experience at her church. We were 15 and she was expected to be speaking in tongues. When she couldnt, it was stated that she was under demonic influence and she started crying. For a month she had to stand before the congregation and apologize for whatever she did to come under such influence. She became so sick of it, she began to fake speaking in tongues so she’d be left alone.
