I started questioning my fundementalist beliefs, and concluded they were impossible to really fit into any rational world view. When I heard hate preached from the pulpit at a church full of otherwise great people, to a chorus of 'amens' by the way, I finally decided that religion was not for me.

edit: What I'm basically getting at is that the amount of doublethink required to rationalize all the beliefs overwhelmed me.

Wer mit Ungeheuern kämpft, mag zusehn, dass er nicht dabei zum Ungeheuer wird. Und wenn du lange in einen Abgrund blickst, blickt der Abgrund auch in dich hinein. -Friedrich Nietzsche, Jenseits von Gut und Böse
