Losing My Religion is the one-hundred sixty-fifth video in the lonelygirl15 video series. Bree gives some background information about her mother and her religion.


Bree: (Bree sits alone in a park, addressing the camera.) Hi. So, Jonas and Daniel are back at the car. Daniel is asleep. Jonas is keeping an eye out for Alex. We took turns last night checking to see if Alex ever went anywhere, but she's still here. I don't really know... what happened in those days that we were... kidnapped. The last thing I remember is walking out of the gas station, and then next thing I know I'm running through a desert, and I'm being chased by this guy, and then he got shot. So I guess I'm alone for a bit. I had a dream about my mom last night. I used to have dreams about my parents all the time, but... not lately. This is the first one I've had in a long time. My mom and I... never really understood each other. I think that part of the problem was that me and my dad got along so well. Looking back on it, I guess she probably felt a little bit left out. To give you a little back story on my mom, she studied philosophy at the University of Edinburgh. My dad used to say that philosophers were lazy scientists. (She laughs.) Anyway, so I guess you can see why these two got along like gangbusters. My mom met this professor while she was there. This was after her and my dad had been an item for a while. And, uh, this professor, I guess, introduced her to the Hymn of One. That's the religion that I'm a part of. My mom was... really looking for answers. Maybe a little bit too hard. She bought into it hook, line, and sinker, she really just... took the plunge. The way my dad talks about it, it was like she was a completely different person. She started off this shy introvert, and then suddenly she was this vocal, outspoken, first-to-pick-an-argument type of girl. Turns out that was all a lie. The religion that my mom fell head-over-heels for, the religion that I was raised in, it's all a front for the Order. I'm not a hundred percent sure why, yet, but I have my suspicions. I think it's pretty clear that there's more to the Order than the whole religion. I think that's just there to validate the whole thing. The Order is quietly doing whatever it doesn't want you to know, on the side. So I guess in a way, you could consider the Hymn of One the recruiting branch. Well, I'm going to do the tough job of waking up Daniel. It's not going to be fun. Daniel is grumpy in the morning. Like, grumpy. Like... (With her eyes bugging out, she pantomimes steam coming out of her nostrils and ears.) Like that. (She makes a clicking sound and salutes the camera.)
