Greetings From the Bible Belt
I found this site yesterday while searching for anti-religious quotes - and found some good ones.
After reading a few of the threads, I decided to register and chime in.
A brief history of me:
Father Church of Christ, mother Catholic but, religion was never discussed while I was growing up - going to church was only on Easter and, I think, for the purpose of my mother and I displaying our new Easter outfits. Christmas was all about Santa.
I've dabbled in various Eastern philosophies 'in search of god' and about 7 years ago, I became a full fledged, 'born again' Christian zealot - self-proclaimed because I never joined or went to a church.
I debated on a few forums, got banned from one and learned a lot about the bible. Since then, especially the past three years, I've out grown religion and have abandoned it altogether.
Now, on the forums, I am on the side of the atheists and I debate against the zealots.
But, alas, I am getting bored with them and so seek to engage with those more rational, logical minds that are possessed by the atheist.
So, here I am.
PS, I, too, wear the post-menopausal, recently unemployed T-shirt. Hi CJ!
