Seems like a few of us are in the eastern panhandle... any possibility of a meet?
Hello everyone. Just wanted to add my voice to this group and say that I am an atheist living in southern West Virginia. Being an atheist can be tough in WV (particularly in the more rural areas). I know that my high school did not respect the separation of church and state in several instances and let students bully their gay classmates with little to no repercussions. Has anyone else had similar experiences?
I am in the east, would've thought given my (relative) closeness to Washington DC, that there would be oodles of others, but if there are, they are hidden.
Do we have any atheist hoopies in the northern panhandle? I live near Wheeling.
Welcome to WV! If you are ever in the area, feel free to check out the Morgantown Atheists. We have plenty of events which you can find by going to http://www.morgantownatheists.com/ or joining our Facebook group.

Maybe some of us oughta get together for a friendly libation somewhere near the center of the state. OK, near what West Virginia has instead of a center. You know, West Virginia holds the geographic distinction of more closely resembling the Flying Spaghetti Monster than any other state. So there's that.
Hello, everyone! Wife & I just moved to WV (Eastern Panhandle, Bunker Hill area) from Maryland. Gotta tell you, we're happy to find this group! Our very first full day here (Dec. 1), the gas man (Mountaineer Gas) invited us to church, and told me about how wonderful life is since he found Jesus.
Is WV really THAT religious?
