Yet another introduction

Hi everyone!

I've been browsing this board for a couple of days now, and finally decided to introduce myself properly. I'm a 21 year old college student from Poland, misanthrope, former Catholic and a long-time atheist. Our country has been infested with Roman Catholics for way too long now, and the current right-wing government is only making things worse. What I find even more frightening, is that US is experiencing such strong pro-christian and anti-atheist tendencies - I've never realized how bad it is before coming to this site. Good to see that there is some opposition Smiling

 I'm not a good debater, so I probably won't join many discussions - just wanted to let you know that there's one more guy around who really appreciates what you're doing.

 Keep up the good work.

Nice, I'm of Polish origin, slightly older, have serious issues with Catholic church, and still managed to come to my senses as well. Weclome, or.....uh, dzein dobry! (Is that right? Too formal? It's been awhile).

Meh, come on, if you're not going to join many discussions you'll never become a good debater.

It's also a good way to brush up the language.

Practice makes perfect, comrade.

 Almost got it right Smiling "Dzien dobry" is about as formal as your "good morning", we use "czesc" for a less formal greeting

 You have a point - still, you can learn a lot just by watching more experienced debaters in action.

I saw your user name and

I saw your user name and knew immediately we had another Polak on the boards!  It's been a long time since I've written in Polish, but here goes:

Od gdzie ti byly urodzony z Polska? Mam rodzina z Wroclaw i ja bylym tam dwa miesiance temu!

 If you end up in our video chat room, maybe I could brush up on my Polish with you.  Oh and I completely agree about Poland being too religious.  I'm hoping we can get an RRS affiliate going there sometime =)

Welcome, Niedowiarek.

I can't welcome you in your native language as others have done, but the thought is no less sincere.

Hi Niedowiarek, I'm new here too.

 

I'm meeting some cool hope you are as well.  Poland.  I love talking to people from outside of the USA.  Give me a whole new perspective on things.
