Why are you here?
I think we're for the most part over the McCarthy era and atheists shouldn't be afraid to be rounded up and put in to internment camps any more. That said, I feel the need to make a final push back in the hopes that new generations will finally have reason triumph over superstition.
The religion you left
Was never a part of one
Why you left your religion.
I was raised by a mother who did not adhere to religion. I have attended Christian religious schools. To me it eventually became like any other Disney book. Albeit with a slightly bitter after taste.

William Boyd replied to Umbra's discussion 'Atheism and Profanity'
"Agreed. I stopped saying "bless you" a long long time ago. Solely because of the religious intent of it. It makes no sense to bless someone. Nowadays I just say "salute". Occasionally I use "gesundheit"."

What did president Romney bring us?

This is a fictional little blurb, this is by no means based on reliable sources or insider information or should be taken for truth or opinion in any which way. It is only writing what sprouted from my imagination. (P.S. I tried 3x in another part of the forum but it kept failing)
