"You are not the only one. I was able to keep a job for twenty seven years but that was because most of the time I was by myself. I was socioally ostracized and never given the chance to move up. I worked for a public school district and the pay…"

Autism, Asperger's and Atheism

It's a language barrier and social barrier that's rough enough to work through without the added ick of religious platitudes. Whether you have it, know someone who does, or are just interested in knowing more, all are welcome!

Richard replied to Round Peg's discussion Forgiving people in the group Life After Christian Fundamentalism
"It"s been my experience that true forgiveness takes time more than anything. You can't change the past so you concentrate on what's going on now. People come and go in life and if they reject you don't worry,there's plenty…"

Richard replied to Miguel's discussion The arrogance of being right
"Personally I am as polite to religious people as they are to me. I know several who know who and what ( atheist and gay) I am and treat me with utmost respect and I treat them the same way. I can't say that about the majority of them…"

Richard replied to Jeffrey Doherty Sr.'s discussion Is it ok to hate?
"Hatred isn't healthy but is hard to avoid,sadly,it's the only thing religion ever taught me,what it's like to be hated and how to hate in return."

Richard replied to Jimbo Slice's discussion East Texas Atheist
"Having to make that conversion must be hard,but being the person that never attended church can be hard when you a child. You are ostrasized by most of your peers as a kid and you don't have the slightest idea why. Good luck to you when you…"

Richard replied to Brittany A. Cox's discussion Why does "atheist" have such a negative connotation?
"Not really Tom,the christians try to spin it like that but the truth is that many,but not all, of the men who wrote the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were atheists, and the concept was to create a separation between church and…"

Richard replied to Roy Batty's discussion Do the "Ends Justify the Means" in Ridding the World of Religion?
"Having been abused by Fundies I sometimes feel "the end justifies the means" is appropriate, after all,that's the same excuse they used with me. How would taking that attitude help us to do better than them though? If your forced…"

You put it well: "walk all over people" and it is they who are in the wrong intellectually.
Welcome to Atheist Nexus with its thousands of good friends. .
Do join good groups like the busy discussion group ORIGINS (Origins: Universe, Life, Humans, Religion..... ).
I have been running a long discussion there about being "Proud to be Atheist" as we all should be, seeing that we hold the intellectual high ground over the religionists.
