There are some very nasty theists around Winston and the surrounding areas. I am of the same mind as Darwin when in a situation such as this:

"I am a strong advocate for free thought on all subjects, yet it appears to me (whether rightly or wrongly) that direct arguments against Christianity & theism produce hardly any effect on the public; & freedom of thought is best promoted by the gradual illumination of mens' minds, which follow[s] from the advance of science."

Hardly. One of the ways that Atheists are better is being rational and thinking things through. When you have something at risk by being out and loud, just bolster our numbers with your census and let others be the vocal ones.

I sound like an cowardly atheist but I have to think of my daughters. I'll not sacrifice their well-being to evil christians for so I can gain my 'street cred' as an atheist. We're not dealing w/ rational folks here! Our very rural area is 50-60 yrs in the past, space is big but sparsely populated. Our town has a pop. of only about 1400. News gets around fast.

Ah, yeah, I forgot Wake Forest was a Baptist university. That's funny as hell, when it's stuck right on the side of Greensboro.

Hi again all...Robert, in answer to your question: Winston is probably the least liberal city in NC. It's home to Wake Forest University (lg private Baptist univ) & their huge Baptist Medical Center! The progressives are there but you won't know it. I know of a young lady who whose car was keyed & an angry note left about her atheist/liberal bumper sticker. Daughter wanted an Obama4Pres sticker for our car then, but I said no way, it's an invitation for all kinds of trouble. If it got out around the school, teachers or the busybodies around town, it would be miserable them.

We only go to Winston for the mall, possible entertainment, and medical stuff, our docs are there.

well, i don't thinkg my big dog is very cat friendly. even though hes usually such a big puss. lol.

plus, we have a hard enough time with the little one always trying to find new ways to escape. much less our cat roaming the neighborhood. would make me nervous as hell. we have enough trouble and expenses dealing with the two lil furmongers we already have, anyway.

I just plain don't like fuzzies in my home. Heh. Dogs and cats as pets are fine, on principle, just not within the subset of my home.

Sorry, but I've got a pet-free home.

Does anyone want a cat? We found a starving cat on our porch. She is VERY friendly. We gave her some food and water and she attacked it. We have two dogs so can't keep her, but I hate giving her to a shelter if I can give directly to an owner. I posted lost n founds on craigslist with no luck.
