"It chills me to read about bullying by christian children, even more so if their parents didn't constrain them. I in no way had a typical upbringing for an atheist kid. I lived in 90%+ Jewish neighborhood. Since many Jews are atheists and…"

"I agree Alex. I have raised my children to be freethinkers. They know that their Mother and I are both Atheists but that they are free to explore their own thoughts on the subject. As fate would have it they are all at least agnostic on the subject.…"

"What is strange to me are the conservative teabaggers. They strongly oppose taxation without representation yet are curiously quiet on this issue. I can't think of a clearer example of taxation without representation than the citizens of DC."

"I don't know, they seem to be accurate. The United States has moved far to the right over the last thirty years. The policies Obama is proposing, like health care, would have been solidly Republican ones in the sixties or seventies."

Welcome to Atheist Nexus!

I have no interest in converting believers or joining the endless circular discussions concerning their beliefs.

Same here. A new group may be forming for people who aren't interested in endless circular discussions, except for circular discussions concerning roundabouts or geometry.
