Why are you here?
Looking for other atheists/non-believers in my area to connect with.
The religion you left
Why you left your religion.
Saw an interview once where a devoutly person of the Catholic faith basically admitted that the Catholic priests who molested young boys had a better chance to getting into heaven than a non-believer who was a good person and never harmed anyone.
Also, recently I took a course in Islam and my professor basically tried to convince us that a woman who gets pregnant as a result of rape still shouldn't have the option of abortion because "the trauma of rape causes so much stress that the woman won't get pregnant over 90% of the time". (My professor was Catholic by the way.)
