The Petrine Cross

I was recently havin a conversation with someone and it came up that someone she knew, after leaving an ash Wednesday mass, appeared to have an upside down cross on her forehead.

Hey Matt! Nice to see there is at least one more atheist in the area. You can check out the Albany Georgia Atheist (AGA) facebook page when you get the chance. That's where most of our conversation/interactions happens outside of out meetings. We have a meeting this Saturday here in Albany. It would be great to see you there if you can make it. If not, you can check out our webpage at www.albanygeorgiaatheists.com to keep up with our meetings. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help. - James
