Hello Oklahoma Hoss
Welcome to this friendly place with freethinkers who recognise that fictional gods and devious organized religions continue to deceive and control vulnerable people including defenceless children;
----and how tragic and inexcusable it also is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and longer.
