True Life: I’m Breaking Up With My Religion


Half of American adults have changed religious affiliation at least once during their lives, and half of them do it before the age of 25. For some, faith and religion are immutable and remain unchallenged throughout their entire life.  But for others, comforting customs and traditions become a source of angst – propelling a spiritual and personal revolution. But, conforming to a new religion often means leaving everything and everyone you know behind. True Life: I’m Breaking Up with My Religion captures ordinary Americans as they are on the cusp of leaving their religions and “coming out” to those whom they are most afraid of losing. These are not cultists or religious extremists – they could be your neighbor, your friend… or even someone in your own family.
