Greetings, Caine! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since Feb. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
Well, I'm a fairly odd person. That'd be the first reason it makes me peaceful I presume. And secondly is the fact that this world has become so stereotypical and anything dark (for a lack of a better word) is counted as unpatriotic. Hell, I knew a Christian friend who dressed 'punk' just because she liked it and people shunned her.
Oh yeah, I remember that line. It's rather famous. Actually.... our county sign does have bullets through it. Heh.
I don't know about that Caine. I was goth-ish when I was younger, and I really appreciate the aesthetics and interests of the goth community. However, I have known quite a few highly religious ppl who were goth - wore the white make up, black clothes, etc, and then went to like the Church of Christ on Sundays. Also, there is a huge gay church here in Dallas, with a lot of really two-faced queers who can come to terms with being a cocksucker and feeling okay about it, but think that a 3-way is immoral. Go figure!
Well, you can do a member search by "houston", or you can also join Atheist Singles and Secular Sexuality groups as well. I don't know of anyone on there who has met another AN member and hit it off, but one never knows. Good luck with it though. I'm sure there are some women from Houston on here. I'd like to be just as lucky as well. It seems most gay men (outside of AN) are threatened by the word Atheism, for some reason.
