Hey and welcome! Lots of great people here... I think you'll find what you're looking for. :-)
Hi, Tiffany! :D I'm new here too and I, like you, need some friends that I can be open with and talk about things that may not be "religion-friendly!" One might think that a lack of a religion just means that part of their life doesn't exist but my agnosticism is just as big a part of my life as any religion would be and I have a need to express it and talk about it.
Hope you find what you're looking for here! <3
Being told to stuff your opinion does get old. Religious bullies get away with their crap because atheists stuff it! I think we need a full planetary atheist coming our party! May be even a 12 step program for atheist assertiveness training! Think of it. We could even go for communum and demand the sacred bean dip!
A very warm welcome Tiff, I am amazed at your strength at not being sucked in by the people around you - brilliant.
@ Tiffany - I hope I don't offend anyone -
Highly unlikely, this is an Atheist group after all :D Loads of people on this site, are in exactly the position you have found yourself, but just dive in, the water is very warm here.
Damned right, Tiff, you can express any views here. The only thing Atheists agree on, there is no god. After that, people differ on a lot of different subjects. But if one can't have a diatribe on an Atheist site, where the heck can one :D
Welcome Tiffany! I think you'll find plenty of support here.
