Connect with fellow freethinkers and skeptics in the palmetto state. It's difficult to be a religious minority in the bible belt, and we need to reach out to each other and let each other know we're here!
"Atheism is not a belief. Communism is a economic belief as is Capitalism. We are at odds with Communism because it has a different approach to economics then we do. With Communism, individual rights can not be tolerated. It is all about the…"

70 years old, retired blue collar worker, H/S and 1 year of college. atheist for 50 years and agnostic for 10 years before that. I was raised in a strong Southern Baptist tradition.
