Greetings, L.E.S.! I see you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since last Feb. We have a new group where you might feel more at home. Please consider joining Hang With Friends, where we can share our stories and laugh, and discuss anything on our minds.
Thanks for joining Recovering from Religion. I hope you will look at our website www.recoveringreligionists.com. If you are interested in starting a group in your area, let me know. Also, read The God Virus: How Religion Infects Our Lives and Culture.
