Picnic had a pretty good turnout, there were 50-60 folks from as far wast as Knoxville and as far east as Charlotte.

We'll be planning next year for two events one in Spring the other around this time again.

Yeah, I've seen that in our group. I don't think I can make that, though.

Don't forget about the picnic next Sunday 9-19-10....

See previous post for details.

Yeah, the Triangle group is around that, with the active membership. We had a recent explosion of membership, over the past couple of months. One of the general social events had something like 50 or 60 people show up. We had a gamer night, a little before that, with about 30.

Joseph P - the Charlotte member roster lists 964 members, but some are just one time visitors. It looks like the monthly social meeting has been having between 40 & 60 people show up. Much better than the 8-10 we used to sporadically have back when JP and I first joined in 2002-ish.

Yeah, not horrible. Is there a decent-sized atheist group in the Charlotte area? We've got quite a few in the Triangle group, which isn't that much larger than the Charlotte metro area.

Hey, Mooresville, NC here.

Just north of Charlotte. :)

the intercessor of our prayers to god the father

So, let me see if I've got this straight. God is an ass who would ignore our prayers if Jesus didn't get them to Him?

And no, I'm not picking on your wording. I've heard it phrased the same way by multiple groups of Christians.

The idea being: god is our heavenly father, & other christians are our brothers & sisters in christ jesus, not sure why jesus wouldn't be our brother too, but the baptists secretly frown on 'downgrading' him to a mere brother....at least he's not widely referred to that way, but rather savior, the intercessor of our prayers to god the father, even a 'friend' at times (I never claimed any of it made sense but "what a friend we have in cheeses" is a parody of a popular baptist hymn). There's also "cheeses of nazareth" & somewhere on flickr someone drew some cheese laying on a cross & hysterically calls it "cheeses on the cross".

I may have heard one reference to jesus as brother in my indoctrination, but he's too important to their fairytale for him to be an 'equal' or 'lateral' to dirty, sinful humans! Despite being 'born' human & whatever the 'family tree' would/should show.

I never realized I had absorbed so much of that christian, baptist-bible-crap until I became an atheist & actually needed to call upon the 'facts' as xtians see them. Imagine my shock as a 'new creature in christ' when I realized church still sucked despite being 'born again'. I secretly hated church & 'preachin' as a xtian, & sunday school was just icky & horrible, esp as a child.

I guess I wasn't a 'true' christian, huh? *cue my eyes rolling*

I've also heard "your family in christ"...Have no idea what that even means.
Yeah,I'd think family values would mean different things for different families as well.
