"Thanks everyone for the kind words and encouragement. Still haven't heard back from my friend (maybe God hasn't answered her yet, he must be busy or something) but I'm holding out a little hope that she'll come around."

"That sucks! My parents recently found out I was an Atheist, by looking through my Facebook Profile. Under religion I wrote "Thank God for Darwin". It was bad at first, mainly for them because I was heavily prepared to debate .But then It…"

I Think I Just Lost My Best Friend b/c of Atheism + Facebook

I have always lived my life with a very open-book philosophy--wherever I was at, if you knew me and you asked, I'd tell you the truth.  Over the years, I went from being raised Catholic to exploring Mormonism (don't ask, I was young and in love), Judaism, Buddhism, all kinds of New Age stuff, and checking out several conservative churches, as well as Episcopalian, whatever, you name it.  I moved away from home when I was 17, across the country to Los Angeles, where I lived for another 17 years…See More

Hello Susan, and welcome to this friendly meeting place with freethinkers like you who recognise that religion is a fraud aimed at controlling vulnerable superstitious people, including defenceless children; and
how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and even longer.
