Alabama League of Reason

Are you a non believer in Alabama? You are no alone, We are a community of non believers who defend logical reason against the Christian oppression in Alabama. We believe decisions for Alabama should be based on human needs and not religious faith.

Standing on the Precipice - My introduction to the atheist community

Posted on August 19, 2010 at 12:26pm 9 Comments

I'd like to immediately get some demographics out of the way so you may have a better grasp of my situation. I'm 29 years old. I am a computer technician at a small company. I am happily married with two kids, ages seven and nine. I have always lived in Alabama. My hometown is located in south central Alabama, deep in the bible belt. Now that that is out of the way...


I want to thank the atheist community and the creators of this site for give people a place to…

Ah, you've answered the question for me. It will be ready for you to publish when you are ready then. I'm a moderator here and only myself of about 12 others right now would have been able to see it after you selected saving it. It went to a blog approval system that helps us keep out the spammers. It didn't go out to the general population yet. There are 4 or 5 admins who have access to more site activity and control than myself and I was wondering if it was a problem for them.

I always find the issue of changing faith within a marriage to be interesting. That has to be a challenge, especially with kids.

Wayne, I just approved of your blog, but it's not in the blog section. I'm wondering if we have a technical problem that I need to alert one of the Admins to, or is there a reason that it might be missing that you know of such as you deleting it?

After reading your blog, I would like to bring up Google is very good at caching this site. So if you don't want your full name to be found by others, you may want to use something different. I personally just got rid of my last name so that it's not prominent.

Let me know on the blog, it was a good one.
