E52 - Oppressive Religion & Religious Trauma Syndrome
Before you get started with today's episode, I just wanted to address the fact that we are going to be talking about religion today. Religion is usually something we stay clear of because this topic is quite triggering for us and other survivors of spiritual and religious abuse who are part of our community.

This request has led to quite a few questions, so…Today, we are talking about religious abuse and religious trauma syndrome.That means we are obviously talking about religion as part of our stories.>> Special Guest: Brady Hardin <<Brady Hardin is one of the hosts of The Life After Podcast. In it, he and his co-host, Chuck Parson, interview special guests with diverse, life-changing exoduses away from oppressive forms of Christianity.Brady was part of a fundamentalist church where he was committed to dedicating his life to the faith and was on course to becoming a pastor or church planter. When he turned to his pastors for help with his failing marriage, that planned trajectory soon changed.
