"I personally never much had anything against gays. Even though I was raised a Jehovah's Witness, for a long time when I was small we didn't go to meetings (church). Most of the anti-gay beliefs/terminology I learned in my k-5 public…"

Your Religious Status

About Me:
While I chose that I left Christianity (which was indeed the original religion I left) I was Pagan for 9 years afterwards before becoming atheist (they should really add that as an option since most pagans I know become atheists)

Otherwise I'm a mom of 1 boy (4) and we're all vegan so I'm a human and animal rights activist and an anti theist. I am the founder of the Greensboro Atheist Organization in my home state of North Carolina.
