In a recent discussion, I came across a post expressing something I know quite well: Being an atheist with deep interests in mysticism, I am often eyed with suspicion by atheists and the faithful alike. Having grown up and lived much of my adult life in countries and cultures not my own, being a stranger, not really belonging fully anywhere, is part of my identity. I imagine it may be different for someone with a strong sense of belonging to a culture and country by birth, but who adopted a different faith. What you expressed sounds like your change of religious allegiance came at the price of not fully belonging to either community, @muhammad_isa. How do contributors who practice a different faith or worldview from the one they grew up with, experience this?
