Emotions have been interpreted as a social glue and as a vital foundation for active internet discussions as well as lived bodily experiences. In this article, I will analyse emotional expressions that are based on a teaching of rejecting contraceptives in the Finnish revival movement Conservative Laestadianism (CL). The emotions are expressed through internet discussions in autobiographical narrations, which are analysed qualitatively. The article illustrates three emotional positions in relation to the teaching on contraception – believers, doubters and surrenderers – as a part of a religious emotional regime. I will argue that context and meaning of emotions are significant in order to understand them as part of a religious system, and the embeddedness of emotions should be taken into account when analysing emotions on the internet.
