i wasn't sloppy drunk, just slightly inebriated. I save sloppy for the house when I crack open wine or break out the scotch.

inebriated to sober in 1.5 hours?

I like you guys a great deal. It should be noted that I have been drinking.

The variety of people here is amazing! I hope we can keep this organization together and keep it growing. I am open to Christians attending, but at least one exclusively atheist meeting per month should be considered.

I should have mentioned - I will gladly be the one who re-directs the believers to a new night if it becomes necessary.

Difference of opnion is a good thing. And I'd love to see the Frisco Atheists expand and be a little more accomodating to our naturally divergent base. By all means we can never eliminate open meetings. There are many atheists that enjoy interraction with believers; I am one of them We can have atheist-only meetings. I am willing to give the existing meetings over to anyone who has the interest in developing that forum. The only thing that I insist on is that every atheist must be welcome in every meeting. We are here to serve atheists - period. Please don't feel like it would be some kind of church split if some people feel passionately that we should have closed meetings; that just means that we're meeting different types of needs. (group hug)
I will continue to work on the projects that I feel strongly about and continue to encourage people to launch into other areas. If open house dies from lack of interest, I'll take my licks. If movie night, lecture night, atheist-only night, volunteer day fail, so be it. But I prefer that they all succeed.

The theists haven't bothered me so far. I'm okay with meet the paster/rabbi/shaman whatever gatherings. Not in every meeting, but it hasn't bothered me so far.

Lisa has never bothered me, and I think it helps to have a believer around. It focuses the group by way of contrast. Without her, we are very different people who don't believe in a god. That isn't much to build an organization on IMO.

Well... the hockey sounds like a good option to me :-)

I get where you're coming from, but the difference is (or at least I would think... since I've never been) is that you get to make THEM feel like the odd man out for a change.

I don't know about you, but I can't just go on an atheist rant here at work. I'd be hauled off and outcast immediately. They'd get a chance to understand what it's like for us every day.

Rick, we have meetings that are inclusive, the last thing that I want to attend is a beleiver/atheist hug fest for every freakin' meeting. There is a distinct reason that I choose not to attend the atheist/believer get togethers. If the group wants to go that way, it'll be fine but it will have to move forward without me since I see it as the only bastion that I have to get away from the A-holes I have to deal with in work and everyday life who think the world is 6000 years old and worship an imaginary sky daddy because a book of fiction tells them it's all true. I have no desire to waste my free time sitting around a table with people I have little or no respect for because of their backwards and outdated beliefs and can find better ways to spend a Sunday evening if need be. Heck, if I wanted to hang with believers on Sundays, I'd join the effin' xtian hockey league so I could legally beat the crap out of them every Sunday night!
