"I was raised in the Southern Baptist Cult since I was a little tyke. Often me and my sister were the only kids our age in the sunday school class. I was facinated by the history recounted in the Bible and the stories and eventually opted…"
"I have had to come out twice now. Being gay and now being atheist. Thankfully I don't have to come out as MALE, WHITE and libertarian-Democrat!! Since I am tired of coming out all the time. But seriously. The folks that love you…"
"Yup that is right. After the overthrow of the Shah the electorate overwhelming voted for an theocracy. As far as rigged elections go..religion does not have to be involved George Bush springs to mind LOL."

Evangelical Atheist and love joining other atheist/non-theist/anti-theist anywhere and everywhere. Advancing logic and reason over fear and superstition.
