I was born and raised in the bible thumping, holy rolling south and am now raising my daughter here too. I've never cared for the flavor of the christian koolaid. I'm drawn to Buddhism and have found that the intellectual aspects of atheism coalesce rather well with the teachings; one isn't required to sacrifice knowledge for blind faith. "Teach your child two things - teach him to be honest and to question." -Ajahn Brahm
Why are you here?
I feel a sense of commonality.. and maybe even a smidgen of vindication.. to be among others who share my dismay over the sheer idiocy of the pious majority.
The religion you left
Was never a part of one
Why you left your religion.
..never quite managed to 'get my jesus on' when I was a kid.. just didn't make sense.. and I had no use for such things.
