About Me:
Working up the nerve to "come out" as an atheist to my friends & family, but know how important it is for people in my age group to stand up proud and demonstrate that atheist are healthy, happy, honest, virtuous, compassionate, loving, and constructive members of our society. My peers are the ones who stand in the way of real change. The young get it. The old will leave us unchanged. It's time to start changing minds and getting our house in order to create a tolerant, livable environment for us all.
Age
47-52
Why are you here?
Looking for support, ideas, like-minded friends - same reason we're all here (I'm guessing).
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
I can't say I really left "my" religion because I haven't really changed my belief's much. The only "church" I've ever belonged to was Unity - and they don't judge atheists or anyone else, so Unity wasn't anything to run from. I'm standing against religion because of the recent stranglehold it's taken on American culture - drawing a line in the sand and focusing everyone on an "us and them" mentality. As the mother of a lesbian, how - in good conscience - can I sit still while the spouse of a presidential candidate can get on the radio and broadcast his belief that homosexuals are "barbarians" who need to be "disciplined" by "authority figures." It's time for us to end this fascination with defining what's "good" and "moral" and "true" on archaic beliefs that have been disproved by science, reason, observation, experience, and every rational means of evaluation we have. If it looks like a fairy tale, and quacks like a fairy tale... It's a fairy tale.
