Hello fellow free thinkers! I'm new to the Atheist Nexus community and wanted to introduce myself. My name is Kevin and I'm from Boston, USA. I've been an atheist since I was about 15 and out to all my friends, but have waited till now to come out to my family. It was tough seeing as how I was raised in a heavily Irish Catholic family with a very devout mother. It was a very strange and difficult conversation to have. It's one thing to have arguments for the crazies you meet on the streets of the city and another to use those attacks on your own mother.
As far as my atheism goes, I'm of the proselytizing type. If someone wants to engage me in a discussion on religion with an open mind I will preach. But I also have many friends that are very religious, and we just never discuss the subject. Only the Bruins and pizza.
"I'm of the proselytizing type"
I call it "enlightening" …proselytizing sounds too much something to do with proctology, …which …if you think about it…?
"Only the Bruins and pizza."
Jesus saves, …and Esposito puts it in on the rebound!
