This probably wouldn't belong on this site, but the most important part of this development is me moving out of the bible belt!!!

I have lived near Winston Salem, NC for the last 8 years and I'm moving to Buffalo, NY (closer to old friends and family). My old job was with a lot of bible thumpers, which included things like team prayers, praying before company lunches/parties, and weekly bible study in the break room.

I can't wait to be able to live free again. I have a lot of atheist friends back in NY.

I felt oppressed because I couldn't act like myself and was constantly reminded I was 'different' from everyone else. On top of that, out of 110 employees, I was one of two or three dems, which I never let known, because that was worse than being atheist with all the racists there!
