I'm the mother of four grown daughters and grandmother to a beautiful 3 yr. old girl. I've always been uncomfortable with religion and finally, over the years, accepted the fact that I don't believe in God and that I shouldn't feel bad about it. I have a very eclectic family. My mother was raised Catholic but is now an atheist. Two of my daughters are agnostic, one I think is on the fence about religion, and another identifies herself as Wiccan. My sister, who is 3 1/2 yrs. younger than me, is a Muslim. I believe in allowing one's children to decide for themselves whether they believe in God or not. I always let them attend church with their friends and told them my reasoning behind not believing in God. As a result, they have decided for themselves what they believe and I think they're doing very well with their own reasoning. Despite the varied beliefs in my family, we all love each other and get along very well. We don't let religion get in the way of our family values. I also just want to add that I love animals and nature, do design work that I sell online, and I'm an all-around great person! =0)
Why are you here?
I want to connect with other like-minded people and learn more about what other atheists and agnostics are thinking and doing. I have no problem saying I'm an atheist anymore as I use to. I'm very worried about the direction this country is going with all the religious rhetoric being spewed by mostly Republican candidates in the Presidential race. I hope to see a big change in the US where religion will finally be taken out of politics and our laws...but I'm afraid, for now, that's only a pipe dream.
The religion you left
Was never a part of one
