Yeah, the urban areas are quite well off, from a liberal and atheistic perspective. I know Charlotte has a decent-sized group. My roommate is from Gastonia, but he's been in the Triangle for the past 13 or 14 years, so he doesn't have a very recent concept of the area.

Did anyone else read this article in Huffington on March 3rd? I just saw it today. Good Read.

I'm pretty sure there's a US Supreme Court decision on point, Tim. I'll look.

Toni beat me to it, I was just on my way here to post about this "moment of silence" My daughter is also in High School, my wife is a teacher in elementary school, and I taught High School here too.  I really want this idea to fail.  I am an athiest parent in eastern North Carolina and I got a call from the Pitt County Schools automatic phone system today asking for feedback on a proposed "mandatory moment of silence" at the beginning of each school day.  We all know what that really means.  I think it would be great if you could help me to pharyngulate the poll and give really great reasons why this is a bad idea.  I'll be mobilizing everyone I can about this issue, but as you know, being an athiest in this part of the country can be pretty lonely.  Thanks for the help, here is the link to the website:  http://www.pitt.k12.nc.us/19871021104028100/site/default.asp

Pitt County Schools is thinking about starting each school day next year with a "moment of silence." I just know it's going to backfire. (My daughter is an HS student.) They have an online survey here. Opinions? Advice?

Is there not a secular or atheist student group at ECU?  I'd check through your university resources.  There might be something.

How many of us are in Eastern NC?  It seems like there are a lot of Triangle and Triad atheists here, but I'd be interested in getting a group together here in Pitt county, Greenville.  Anyway, get in touch if you are from around here, maybe we can meet up sometime.

Oh that sounds like a good plan, thank you Neil.
@Carol: I know atheism is not a religion but symbolic jewelry isn't always, or even mostly, religious.
