Greetings to all. New to this site, but have considered myself an atheist for many years. Had a falling out with a Sunday school teacher when I was about 11, when she asked the class to draw a picture of something we thought of as bad. I drew a picture of soldiers fighting. She said I was a blasphemer and what I drew was blasphemy. Following that, I made it a point to cut Sunday school every time I could. Kept the couple of dollars my parents gave me for the collection and bought a snack or a comic book. Today, I am happy and religious free for about 38 years.
