It's amazing to see how she was in this video, and then to see her today celebrating about the legalization of same sex marriage in the United States. I'm so happy that she finally got the courage to leave. It's like she isn't even the same person anymore.

Calm conversations like these is what helped change her. So next time you're in the face of ignorance remember to not lose your shit!

I'm happy that megan left the church. It's a difficult thing to do and she has a lot of courage. She was clearly brainwashed in this video.

Whoa. I just watched her TED talk and the difference is staggering. Nowadays she's kind, intelligent and understanding. Here she just seems like a clone of her mother. It's so unsettling, how she's so firm in her beliefs and her ignorance. I'm so glad she got away from them and that horrible ideology. I want all of their kids to come to the same conclusion, but unfortunately I think they're just too brainwashed.

Look at her eyes in this video. They're dead. Now look at her eyes in the TED Talk, they're warm and alive. Big difference.
Go and watch her TED talk after this.

And to think she's an atheist now. It's amazing how much people can change.

I'm glad she escaped. It's sad to see her old videos.
Damn, I feel so much affection for her that it's almost discorcerting xDD Looking forward to meet you someday, Megan.

Came here after the JRE. She's such a sweet lady now.
