There are many reasons for my symbolic defection. I am an atheist and have been for several years. Unfortunately, I failed to officially defect before Canon Law was amended to prevent me from doing so. I have committed sins resulting in automatic excommunication (according to CIC 1983). I have notified my Parish Priest of these sins but received no reponse. I want out of this sick, evil, hypocritical and irrational religious cult.
