Hi Douglas Allchin, and welcome to this friendly meeting place with freethinkers like you who recognise that gods are phoney and religion is a great fraud aimed at controlling vulnerable superstitious people, including especially defenceless children; and
how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and even longer.
