Unlike what I usually do when I crosspost from my blog (where I simply paste the text in), I'll provide a TL;DR here because I want to highlight the thing I found really surprising.

Open Letter to Christians #3: Freedom From Religion? Yes.

Thanks for the friend request! Definitely accepted! :-) Can't wait to talk with you more on your philosophical views of religion... although logically there is really very little to go over other than arguments against and reasons why... anyway, you get my drift I think :-)
