My name is Jens and was born and raised in a atheist/nonbeliever home here in the very secular country of Sweden.
Did not get baptised as a baby, my parents decided that me and my little sister could choose for ourself when we old enough. Some of the older relatives the started to call us two for "the little heathens", I do find that hillarious. This was nearly 40 years ago, things have changed a lot since then.
Church and state are now seperated, took just about a thousend years. :)
Most people here in Sweden are nonbelievers in "religion" but have some believs in some sort of higher power. Many are still members of the Church of Sweden, you get automaticly membership when you get baptised.
Religion are more or less a private thing here, if people say they are believers, find jesus/god and/or missionering (is that the right word?) most people here, including me, start looking embarrased and wondering where the "candid camera" is.
I been looking/reading through many of the posts here at Atheist Nexus, some of the stories about beeing atheist and "comming out" sounds like pure nightmares. :(
If you have any questions about me and/or anything I will answer them the best I can.
Sorry if my english somewhat wrong, it is not my native one. Swedish (Svenska) is the one I mostly use.
