Re:monthly get togethers

The New Orleans Secular Humanist Association holds monthly meetings at the Loyola library downtown on the last Saturday of every month.

"Cultural Difference" doesn't even begin to describe it! Yes, family here - our kid's only surviving grandparents. They're quite aged and, frankly, I think he's the one thing that keeps them going, so it's the one thing that comes close to validating our presence here.
Our second home there is The Parkview Tavern. Certainly it has changed a bit since Katrina, but it still serves the old clientele as well.
Schools here are better, yes, but strange. The housing market seems almost entirely geared toward school location. Because it is so racially segregated here, a couple of school districts have emerged in which only the elite can afford to live. In essence, these schools have become "private" in that one must pay exorbitant housing costs in order to send their kids there. Fortunately for us, we prefer our kid to experience diversity, so he's about to start Pre-K at a school that's about 60% Mexican/35% Black.
Yes, it's rather a strange place...

There are plenty of us down here. We just need them to join this site. I'm still hearing people say that this site is owned by an evangelical. That little controversy/misunderstanding has probably set this site back a lot. But the only way we're going to have a voice is if we speak together.
Oh, and if you haven't seen the new batman yet, GO!

Hey Brian! Nice to see ya! My husband and I moved to Tulsa from New Orleans 3 years ago. We're still trying to get back. It's a little tough with a 4 year old kid (the school situation). Anyway, where do you stay and what bar(s) do you frequent? I'd love to talk about home. See ya.

The internet is a lifesaver if people that think on the same wavelength are scarce locally. For me it's also very handy, because my local atheist community includes people from all different parts of society and life, so it can be hard to schedule a meet-up in meatspace :P

Agnostics are just timid atheists! So there! ;)
Well, let's say overoverly diplomatic atheists. Of course I use the term atheist for a person with 6 on Dawkin's scale from 1-7.

I find it really hard to believe, what I heard, that while crazy preachers like Pat Robertson say Katrina was God's Vengeance (tm) against a sinful New Orleans, New Orleans become strengthened in their faith after the tragedy. Sound very silly. But what do people grab for in search for hope? :/

So, you don't have any atheist group in your neighbourhood or anything? That sounds very lonely :(

Hi, thanks for the add!

Interesting to "meet" an atheist from New Orleans;)

Nice to meet to, Brian. Interesting interests you have. I'm interested in cultural anthropology as well, the working class (I'm a Socialist), "Folk" music, and writing has always been my passion. Hope to get to know you better.
