In our premiere issue, we sit down with author and activist Bo Juel, and catch up with what he’s been doing after penning his memoirs, “The Least of God’s Priorities.” We also talk about why we put up monuments, and why we tear them down, and how to make plans for long-term fitness.

“Apostate Monthly” is the only magazine written by, for, and about “apostates” and all those coming out of cults and other abusive religions. More than just personal stories, this magazine provides a wealth of advice for moving on, including tips on how to stay physically healthy, how to build relationships once you’re on the outside, and how to become a real part of the world around you. No matter your religious background, you’re sure to love what’s inside!

Happy Valentine’s Day! In our February issue of Apostate Monthly, we chat with everyone’s favorite ex-Jehovah’s Witnesses and aposta-couple, Christian and Katja Gutierrez, to discuss how their love survived after leaving the cult. We also take a close look at one identifying aspect of any cult, when they act like the adult and you’re a child! Our special section on Well-Being talks about the need to create happiness, while we also offer lots of tips for making this Valentine’s Day special. Enjoy!

In this issue, we are happy to present the special section, “But Where Do I Go?” For those coming out of cults or any controlling religious situation, this is a question that often plagues them. How do you embrace and respect your religious and spiritual beliefs without dredging up bad memories? How do you get past your former indoctrination if you have questions or doubts about god’s existence altogether? This section explores those questions, and offers advice on how to find your own spiritual and religious balance, whether or not your journey forward includes religion at all.

In this issue, we also discuss the loaded language of cults, why it’s used, and how to spot its influence. Our special guest commentator also talks openly about mistakes he made in leaving his cult, and how you can avoid doing the same!

Cult-like, abusive personalities are not just found in religious settings, as the tragic tale of dance student Sharon Stern so demonstrates. Find out more about her story and her family’s work with FACT in this month’s issue.

Also inside, our special guest commentator “Sam Fade” explains the dangers of sexual repression in fundamentalist religions, especially for women.

In our recurring feature, “Are You In a Cult?”, we discuss how cults often use a person’s sins and weaknesses against them.
