I see, as I, you are behind the Fundamentalist Curtain in the south. I'm in Texas as I'm certain it's as bad here as Alabama; however, we disbelievers are hooking up and this great site is assisting us all to reach out and lend an ear or shoulder where possible.
Keep the non-faith we're all in this together and maybe, just maybe, the modern age will show the dolts in the world that we're correct in a reality based life and existence.
Welcome, I see that you are also from the "deep south" or "bible belt", what ever tag you want to put on it, it is a horrible place to be Atheist. I am proud of all Atheists, but particularly those who come from the south.
