"way late to the discussion, but I joined a UU church for the community and religious education/protection for my kids. Most of our congregation are atheist/agnostic/secular humanists, as are at least 50% of UUs. Even those who call themselves pagan…"

"Fred - I often tick other non believers off. I'm a free thinker , which led me to non religious and non theistic belief- however I'm not finished.  I don't cease to think or dogmatically defend Atheism - sometimes I…"

"Janelle , I miss the community as well... It was a great comfort in my life. Yes, it's ok to miss the bonds... The 'good' stuff. Perhaps one day our children will have this experience, but not through religion."

"Yes. I think mothers often feel the sting more - women are more emotional on average. Dads do in their own way - they hurt seeing us hurt. In my new 'outted' status ( which was many, many years ago), my first two children went…"

Free Thought At Stand Still

First and foremost - I'm a free thinker, above that of Atheist. The greatest disrespect a person can do to that understanding - is to stop thinking and to treat it as a perfection or the end of the search. Atheism is not perfection or without blemish, and is deserving of challenge and deep introspection. When we stop questioning the validity of our own claims,  defend through irrationality or by bypassing the core of topic - to instead promote our disbelief and the 'greatness' of Atheism - we…See More
