Hello Katrina and welcome to this friendly meeting place with freethinkers who recognise that gods are fictions and religions exist to control vulnerable superstitious people including defenceless children;
how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and longer.
The unspoken preference for responding to the comments of another member tend to be that you copy, paste, and italicize the text to which you are referring, and then write your response below that. That way everyone knows to whom or what you are referring. Welcome aboard. I hope you enjoy it here.
