You simply need to buy a plane ticket and leave the US. Since your asylum application apparently was untrue, do not expect to ever be able to return the US.See question

Generally, a legal permanent resident can apply to naturalize, or become a U.S. citizen, five years after obtaining a “green card.” When asylees get their “green card” it is backdated one year, meaning that they can apply to naturalize four years after obtaining residence. Once a foreign national becomes a U.S. citizen, as long as there was no fraud in the naturalization application, he or she cannot be deported.See question

Under US immigration laws, persecution due to religious beliefs includes:
Serious threats or infliction of physical, psychological, or economic harm by one’s own government or uncontrolled group
Asylum Based on Religion
Punishment by a religious police through being beaten, detained, or otherwise harmed
Punishment by a family member, whose authority over you is recognized or tolerated by your country’s government, based on your supposed failure to comply with religious norms
Special restrictions on your religious freedom imposed by your country’s laws that have a serious impact on your individual way of life
Severe discrimination imposed on your religious group or banning the practice of your religion and forcing you to join a certain religion against your will
Applications for asylum based on religion are decided on a case-by-case basis as there are a wide range of possible circumstances. In order to obtain asylum, you must demonstrate that your actual or perceived lack of religion is the main reason for your persecution.
To apply for asylum based on religion in the US, you must submit an Application for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal: Form I-589 to the USCIS. Generally, this shoud been done within one year of your arrival to the US and you may include your spouse and children on your application.
If you are granted asylum, you may apply for a green card one year after being approved. To do so you must file Form I-485 Application to Register Permanent Residence or to Adjust Status.

If you are eligible, you may be able to apply for a hardship waiver.
One of the waivers that would allow you to lift the conditions on your permanent residence is if removal from the U.S. would cause you or your dependent child “extreme hardship.” Although you do not have to simultaneously prove that your marriage was entered into in “good faith,” as you do with the other waivers, this relief is discretionary, and the hardship threshold is difficult to satisfy.
Once you are divorce, you can change the category of your waiver.See question

An asylum seeker must prove that he or she has a well-founded fear of persecution based on one or more of five grounds:
Membership in a particular social group (Most LGBTQ individuals who apply for asylum qualify under this category)
If my asylum application is being pending for over 6 years do i qualify for parol to travel and come back? i have working parmit
echnically, asylum applicants CAN travel outside the U.S., but it’s usually not a good idea. Even with your pending asylum application you will be subjected to questioning from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) when you attempt to return to the United States. If you have inadmissibility grounds that could be triggered when you leave (such as unfavorable immigration or criminal history), you may be denied reentry, even if you have the necessary travel documentation. You should consult an immigration attorney who can best advise you to whether it is in your best interest to leave the United States.
If you decide to travel anyways, you will need to submit Form I-131, Application for Travel Document to USCIS in order to receive “advance parole” (permission to reenter the U.S. before your application is approved). To learn more about this, see “Filling Out Form I-131 for Advance Parole.” Apply for advance parole well in advance of your trip and make sure you do not leave the U.S. without your travel document.
The biggest travel “don’t” for asylum applicants is returning to the country where you have indicated that you fear persecution. If you do so, USCIS will then presume that you have abandoned your asylum application and may even decide that you submitted a fraudulent application – which could have serious consequences such as a permanent bar from reentering the United States.
