Do you? know when the next convention be held in Houston
They're planning on holding it in Austin next fall last I heard.
You think Houston's bad, head up 59 about a hundred miles! It's Reyudneyuk Jeeezuz Hell up here! Houston is heaven in a free-thinking sort'of way!
Lol! Well I guess when you put it that way! :-)
As Teal'c would say, "Indeed."
Or as Spock would say...
Well, he wouldn't say anything, just raise an eyebrow.
I am from Philippines. We brag that we are the only predominantly christian nation in ASIA... We are the only country left without divorce. Thr Catholic church have a very strong hold on our Politics, views, culture and LIFE.
I am a "closet" atheist because the minute i "come out" I will tagged as the devil, goat worshipper, sub-human etc...
i say the same thing.. "I am not religious." hahhaha
I dont also want to convert others to our belief.. I let them follow kung ano man faith nila kaya no real benefits din to come out.
Networking might be the first step in organizing resistance/change? I don't think accusations of "devil" are uncommon in any country. Religion makes people behave like idiots, period (picture my stepmother pointing at my aunt and yelling Satan! Satan!; they attend the same church). The Phillipines is a beautiful place (as seen on GoogleMaps). :)
Ralph, i agree. as mentioned in the book of R Dawkins "good people will do good things, bad people will do bad but only religion can make good people do bad things."
I live in Connecticut, but I don't think of myself as "representing" it in any way. I also don't think that's an indication as to what kind of person I am. There are idiots everywhere, as well as smart people. I do think that the smarter and better educated a person is, the more likely that person is to be non-religious.
