“I would wake up at 5 a.m. every day and pray. I went to church three days a week,. I never listened to secular music. I took it very seriously. I never do anything half-a–ed.
“I’d get into trouble for wearing a tank top or tight jeans to Bible study. The youth pastor would make me wrap a sweater around my waist to hide my butt. And then I did this episode of Chicago Hope, playing a girl who had gonorrhea in her throat, and my friends from church made me feel so bad about it. Like I was nasty or dirty for doing it. Like I wasn’t a good Christian. It started making me bitter towards the church.”

I see her point, but I maybe see some of her friends’ point too.
