"Bah, that really sucks. As someone who's also interested in the history of Christianity (and history in general), I remember being really impressed at the way the Catholic priest of my school handled the matter. He obviously stated some…"

"Yeeeaaahhhh, a preacher teaching a class that's supposed to be about history of religion pretty much sounds like bad news to me xD Annoying and condescending sounding person This is one of the reasons I chose not to apply for the new college in…"

"College towns are definitely a few notches more liberal and sane.  Still, I know a few people in the dinky college towns of Alabama and Georgia.  They're only ever liberal, relative to the surrounding intellectual wasteland. …"

"Yeah, small-town Missouri.  I can imagine that it's hard to find many other atheists around you.  Well, jump into the conversations around here.  Plenty of ranting going on, particularly in groups like Atheist News."

Why I Dropped My New Testament Class (And Then Signed Up on this Website)

So, I originally wanted to create an account on here to rant about this, because I don't have too many people to rant to. It involves me signing up for a class about the New Testament at a community college in the middle of the Bible Belt and the crappy things that happened afterward. This is copied from my Tumblr, where I originally posted it, and it's fairly long.I suppose it was my fault for thinking I could learn about the New Testament from a historical point of view when the instructor is…See More

College towns are definitely a few notches more liberal and sane.  Still, I know a few people in the dinky college towns of Alabama and Georgia.  They're only ever liberal, relative to the surrounding intellectual wasteland.  Still fundie central.  Do you know if the college you're looking at has a branch of the SSA?
