Why are you here?
"Here", as in "on Earth"? Or "here" as in at Think Atheist? All kidding aside, my daughter sent me a link to an article (People walking out on a Bill Nye lecture in Texas because, apparently, the moon does not shine on its own!) I started exploring, and my interest was piqued. That, plus reading Hitchens, Dawkins, Harris, et al, would have eventually guided me here.

A local evangelical church is featured in "Halifax Magazine", a free add-in to the local Sunday paper.


From the article-


"He (Russ Conway, the pastor) initially says a gay person would be welcome within the church, but when pressed acknowledges that unless they wanted to become straight they would not be welcome."


And I'll give you the last three paragraphs (or what I feel is…
