Westboro Baptist Church

I have had the enlightening experience of being both Christian and atheist in my 31 years on this planet, so I am able to look at the Westboro Baptist Church through both sets of eyes. 



I followed the WBC story as I have always been intrigued by cults; particularly the way in which cults snare high functioning intelligent adults. Through my own studies regarding these issues, I came to the realisation that, as a Christian, I too was in a cult. I am now an outspoken atheist, free…

Deconverting, well not really

Up until recently I had been a believer, but never a true christian. I got baptized at about 12 years old but never read the bible, I just believed in god and didn’t want to hell. The church I went too is located in Franklinton, North Carolina. Don’t bother looking for it on the map because you probably wont find it. Anyways it was a black baptist christian church, but they was always shouting and acting a fool and all that shit. I think I seen somebody's head to a 360 turn like on the…

How the dice landed

I've had a relatively good life. I was never abused, impoverished or homeless. I was born with loving parents, who raised me in a Baptist household. They were missionaries for years and I was a child, impressionable and naive. I was raised on a diet of the usual well-minded christian brainwashing. But my story only becomes applicable 2009.

 

Till I was 15, I coasted. Sure I prayed occasionally, went to church with my parents, believed in Jesus as the lord and all that, but I…

Another one?

I got another religious pamphlet at work tonight. This happens every once in a while. Used to be a born again christian coworker who would leave them behind. Mostly for me. She wanted to save me. You know, the usual. We'd get in debates and she could be fairly nice but she would go out of her way to bring up religion even when I was steering clear. It was to the point that other coworkers, even ones who do believe in god wanted nothing to do with her. She's gone now but sometimes people come… Continue

Hilarious spoof website : Land Over Baptist

Anyone in the mood for a good laugh?? : http://www.landoverbaptist.net/



My boyfriend had me ranting and raving for half and hour before he broke the news that this website is taking the piss. Do yourself a favour and rummage through the plethora of ludicrous comments and statements. I think some christians are taking it seriously and being taken for a huge ride.


Scary though to think some…

Standing on the Precipice - My introduction to the atheist community

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…
