When I joined the nexus I felt confined. I had no one really to talk to about my views and it was a relief to find a group of people I could have "those" discussions with. After joining I found plenty of other Atheism sites I was not previously aware of (example r/atheism). Since then I go to more links where Atheists and fundies argue. I read more fundie nonsense than I use to. I am exposed to religious nonsense Daily. I must have been living in denial before nexus because now I am getting (for lack of a better word) Angry! The abuse of children for religion, the saturation of religion into our government, the discrimination and hate of anything against "their" religion. I don't know if I should turn my computer off and stop looking at this stuff or do I stay angry and argue with fundies online. There does not seem to be a middle road for me. If I see fundie nonsense on FB or comments under an online article I have read I am unable to stop thinking about it. I knew the world was full of fundies and "stupid" people but I guess I shielded myself from it before. Now it feels like I have jumped in the deep end.
Did joining coalitions of Nontheists online help you or are you experiencing an increase in unbelief/anger? If so, how do you deal with it?
I'm angry that they discontinued 7-Up Gold. (:
Honestly I'm not angry about this stuff anymore. That does not mean I have no passion to see the wall kept between separation of church and state or that I think there is no need for robust criticism of religion.
