It depends upon the area.  In the Triangle, the Triad, and Charlotte, you may as well be in the north.

Welcome to the new folks! It's extremely hard to be a proud & active atheist in the south. The consequences can be extremely detrimental on so many levels. Hell, even the prisons in NC are full of 'xtians'!

Wow, Richard that sucks. When xtians say "live and let live" they don't mean it; even the luke-warm ones.

 

I recently became active on Facebook (minimally) mostly because of my daughters, etc., but I'm just waiting for that exact same thing to happen to me. If I'm outed to my family, it'll be from Facebook for sure. I don't go there much but I feel like it 'follows' me then announces it to the world. But, I'm a bit paranoid; obviously those of us in the closet have to reason  to be!

About 70 miles north of you. How big of a group do you guys have down there, anyway?

Cool, I can live with that.

Hmm, wacky. I must be mixing up Fayetteville with Jacksonville or something.

When it comes to the privatization of Law Enforcement and such, I always worry about such private organizations being answerable more to the people holding the purse strings than to the public. I see pure Libertarianism as the route to an aristocracy. Absolute freedom is never an end point. Someone always makes a power grab.

I'm all for fiscal responsibility, just not fiscal conservatism.

Also, I'm probably a bit militant anti-Libertarianism because most of my exposure is to the extremists. The guys on our group's boards are the sort who think that all taxation should be illegal, and the only role of the government should be contract law.

Joseph P, Charlotte doesn't use meetup anymore. Our group has it's own site:

It was something like 3 or 4 months ago. I can't even remember which specific group it was.

Yeah, it takes a while to grow a group to any kind of size. It doesn't help that the Fayetteville area is far more conservative and religious than the Triangle, the Triad, or Charlotte.

How active are the Cape Fear groups? The Triangle group had a meetup where we were going to have a few of the Cape Fear group show up, but we never saw them that I'm aware of.
