"Wikipedia on the Gideons
That's a pretty good link to a lot of information about the Gideon organization that leaves the Bibles in hotel rooms. And yes, they do leave King James Version Bibles. As far as I know, that's all…"

"I would love the chance to have someone like that around to have a conversation with. I might just tell him that even he doesn't believe what he says he does. "Hey Preacher." "If you are badly hurt in an accident…"
"I sure do agree with everything everyone has said here. You might also point out to that preacher that your friend was brought in to your place of work and not his church for a reason. It's quite obvious that everyone has more faith…"
Nexus has many ways for members to be involved, make friends, learn, and express yourself. The welcome center is composed of Nexus volunteers, sort of like greeters at your favorite store.

To find local groups and make friends or chat, Meetup.com is a great place to locate groups or start one. (note, Meetup is not connected to AN). Join Meetup and search on a key word, such as atheist, atheism, skeptics, freethought, to see if there is a local group.
