"Jake--try seeking out more progressive Christians...if they respect people of other faiths, they should be more open to an atheist if you initially frame it as another type of "other" belief system.  They're less likely to take…"

"Thank you for giving us insight into how serious the doctrine is about maintaining division between the holy and the heathen in this sect of Christianity, Dennis.  It's very eye opening.  I'll share my experience too, for…"

"ohmigourd, crying during sex and marrying over it...that's so f'ed up!  What a pair.  No offense, but that's a bit shocking.  I truly hope they have more going for them than guilt free sex to keep them together."

About Me:
I'm Jake, I'm in college studying a myriad of things, focusing mainly on International Affairs and Neuroscience.

I'm very passionate about politics (mainly civil and human rights), psychology, criminology, religion (the arguments against the need and uses of it in present society), linguistics, foreign cultures and languages.
