Just saying hello (new member). I am of the opinion that I was born an atheist (like everyone) and that after a short period where my mother drug me to church services, I returned to atheism in fifth…Continue

"I noticed that that belief also plagues atheists. You can see it from how many enjoy the discussions about the best reply to theists when they spout bible verses. I think that spreading hate is on both sides and it needs to stop.    "

Atheists Getting Bullied?

The latest Penn Point is really great and a little personal for me. I had shared on Google+ and Facebook a story about my son receiving threats from classmates for being an atheist. Penn had some kind words for me then, and he mentions it towards the end of this video. It's not easy for everyone to "come out" as an atheist. Penn talking about it does make it easier. His radio show did that for me. He sells himself a little short here. He is a hero.See More

""We believe different things...we love you regardless." That's a great attitude! It's so sweet of them to have unconditional love for you! You have some great grandparents there!"

"Keep it to yourself"

Posted on October 8, 2011 at 12:12pm 8 Comments

I quick thought on keeping your opinions to yourself. I'm switching locations at work starting Monday (it happens a lot). Before I left yesterday, a co-worker I have become friends with came into my office and shut the door. EVERYONE knows I'm an atheist (I'm as "out" as I can be). During my time knowing her, she has asked me more questions about the "A" word than anyone I've ever met. I now understand why. She was raised Catholic and has been a "believer" her entire life. Ten…
