I think I know about the Winston one, are you talking about F.A.C.T.?

@ Christopher.
Hi there's a few of us in and around Winston. There's even a couple of Meet Up groups locally one in Winston and one in Greesnborough.

Fayetteville Atheist here, too. Glad to see there are some freethinkers in NC.

I see a lot of atheists from around NC, any near Winston? I am the only local atheist I know.

I'm down the road from you leigh,outside New Bern.
I'm old as the hills and am controlled by two house rabbits.
There are also more churches here than you can shake a stick at.

Maybe it's because I live in the fictionalized town of Mayberry, boyhood home of Andy Griffith, that people here are all "god & country"
It fits in with their idea of small town American values. We have 88 churches in this town but not one natural food store, not even a Whole Foods. Our first week here one of our neighbors made it a point to bring his pastor by night after night trying to bring us "the word of god" He was relentless until I asked him if he was working on commission. He hasn't spoken to us since but we refer to him fondly as the soul collector. After him was the unending line of church ladies, all determined to get past the front door. None of them succeeded, and as I grew increasingly less polite word seemed to get around and they have dwindled to no more than 1 or 2 a month. But still there is the inevitable question when I meet someone new and it is a questioned often posed to my husband by his high school students at the start of a new semester. As an impolite question deserves an impolite response, we have both learned to simply answer "it is none of your business". .

I'm surprised when I look at the fact that there are several churches in my tiny town and the fact that I've not been asked "What church do you go to?" or such ever that I can recall. Maybe it's just secretly full of the religionless, considering how many atheists I was aware of in high school.

If asked what church I attend, I answer "Landover Baptist."
