Greetings, River Otter! I see you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since 2009. We have a new group where you might feel more at home. Please consider joining Hang With Friends , where we can share our stories and laugh, and discuss anything on our minds.
Thanks for your replies to my blog (Speaking Out and Finding my Voice II). This upcoming speech will be more friendly because of other topics I want to touch on for this particular audience, but I will definitely be speaking out more in the future, and the links you provided will be excellent resources!
I thank you for your compliments. I do try and keep myself upon to whomever, never said I closed people off. After all, love is a marvelous thing when possessed. Just wish I did not have to constantly feel like I am walking in between two worlds trying to constantly hold on to the both of them in the process. Only now do I begin to see myself more in the aspects of my individuality as opposed to solely being in the construct of a black man. This has been very very difficult to achieve over the last 5 years to be honest.
Glad you found the information useful. It's one of those things that the more information you have and know, the more angry you get at our elected and appointed officials. Also the government agencies and government employees, which in the long run, work for YOU.
This one looks like it's in NC. From what I've heard, the Judgement Houses aren't AS bad as Hell Houses, but I'm not sure...
This website talks about both kinds.
Hi, you asked about the Hell Houses. From what I can tell, they come mainly from the evangelical branch of christianity, ie., pentecostals, militant baptists, etc. I've discussed them with several catholics and non denominational christians, and they were horrified.
I don't know if there's an atheist meet-up here. Not likely. We have churches out the you-know-what. They even meet in school cafeterias. Fortunately, my husband is atheist, so we "team up." Daily, we laugh about the religious comments made. Today, one woman at work said she was going to let god decide if she should take an early retirement package! Oh brother!
I know. I just hate getting out in public period sometimes. I usually try to get what I want and get out, when I shop. Unless I'm spending gift money or something. Even then, I'm not all crazy acting about shopping.
