Hi Don: Thanks for the reply. Do you not beleive that he is alone in his thinking. He stands up to many in the senate. I am proud to be a Vermonter. Here's my question:

I never belived in organized religion. I just lost my sister and it was so hard to be in the chuch, even though it was no denominal. I am angry. Do Aganiest's believe in any God? Do they belive that there is a higher power. I want to believe but I refuse to listen to to any man or women . Sometimes I wish I could go someplace and believe that my life would be better if I went someplace every Sunday
I do not believe in church and state!!! I hate that term

I quess you can see that I am very angry. Sorry

Question? Is it true that Bernie Sander is an Atheist
Comment by zuzu on January 4, 2009 at 7:02am
Don, Interesting you should bring up the illegal farms workers. The farm workers are needed and wanted. The federal government, however, has a different idea and has even raided some farms, endangering the ability of the farmers to maintain their farms. The undocumented immigrants, some longtime continual or seasonal residents of the state, find themselves imprisoned and facing deportation, with no right to free legal counsel. Vermont seems a more welcoming place for immigrants than most places. It's sad that the federal government does its best to make the state a dangerous place for them. Their also picked up trying to cross into Canada, where the amnesty laws are more lenient. These unfortunate immigrants are also imprisoned and face the same fate. This bring to mind the federal death penalty case of a couple of years ago involving the defendant Donald Fell, where, as you probably recall, the federal prosecutor sought and won a death sentence against this defendant in Vermont, 50 years after a death sentence had been imposed by a Vermont court. If these examples are any indication, the federal government doesn't care much for our peaceful ways.

I've lived in Vermont for 18 years. I agree with you, Don, that in general Vermonters are more tolerant than folks in most states. But tolerance seems to be strongest in left-leaning communities. I know of bigotted treatment of gay adults and kids and African Americans and others, incidents which don't seem to be common knowledge. Aren't we the whitest state in the country? I can't imagine how difficult it would be to be a minority in Vermont. As a member of a "suspect" class, I have experienced what I believe to be discrimination, behavior which, if not illegal, wasn't welcoming or tolerant. At times, I find myself idealizing Vermont as a progressive haven, but we have our share of intolerance, perhaps on a smaller scale befitting Vermont's tiny, largely dispersed population.

Hi Y'all from the Bible Belt. I was born and raised in Northern Vermont. I have been in NC since 1993. I came here to make a life for myself. Vermont living is hard and there isn't much work.

Where are all of the Atheists in the great state of VT? Being in NC I can't spread the word up there. UGGGH!

I have been Agnostic most of my life. I have been an Atheist for about 10 years. I am thankful my mother never taught me her Catholic religion. WOOT!

Greetings - I haven't seen many other Vermont residents here on Atheist Nexus and I am hoping this will draw some out.
