“…then I don’t belong with you!” : - To dissociate oneself from a religious communion (English)
Abstract [en]

This study focuses on why people not longer want to be a part of a religious communion they have earlier been a part of. To examine this I have made seven interviews with people who have left their previous communions. Together with the methodological and theoretical discussions on discourse analysis, Richard Jenkins discussions on identity and theories concerning the post-modern society, I have made an analysis on how these people consider their previous communions and its members. They refer i.e. to the social control, the ‘closed’ culture and the non-questioning-culture that constitute the communions and its techniques. They also question why the communions present themselves as ‘good’, despite their deficiencies. Here I claim that in the same time these people question these techniques, they get exposed by them.
