"It may be ignorance. There are people who have lived very sheltered lives, and believe if you live in their area, you believe like they do. If you would try to discuss it with the cashier, i think there might be a long silence on her part. Clueless.…"

Have a Blessed day Walgreen says.....

What does the word blessed mean? I ask because i recently popped into a Walgreens and the cashier ended the transaction with have a blessed day! Maybe I was in a bad mood or just finally fed up with christianity being crammed down my throat but I called the manager and politely said not everyone appreciates the cashiers enthusiasm. Ultimately he attempted to tell me blessed doesn't have christian connections at all. It just means  be prosperous and well. Are you kidding me? It means may I …See More

Long Journey from repressed ignorant southern boy raised Jehovah's Witness southern baptist and pentecostal all in the same household to a Proud Atheist. At 47 I feel driven to fight for civil liberties that are constantly under attack by religion and to hopefully make a difference. Sickened by the daily deluge of symbols and references to a god and I am ASTOUNDED so many people are unable to break free from their social conditioning which began as infants.

Hi Dwayne, and welcome to this friendly meeting place with freethinkers like you who recognise that religion is a grand deception aimed at controlling vulnerable superstitious people, including defenceless children; and you know
how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and even longer.
