Greetings, Boo! I see you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since April. We have a new group where you might feel more at home. Please consider joining Hang With Friends , where we can share our stories and laugh, and discuss anything on our minds.
Yeah, I hear ya! Don't think they get the point, you can believe what you want, just don't force it on others...especially by putting it in law. Tempted to tell them that they have changed my perspective on the issue...only in the wrong direction they'd like. I really did used to stand up for them here in AB (people here really do have a horrid opinion on Quebec). Not so sure anymore. Oh well, I guess I can still point out there are some sane ones like yourself there, at the very least (^_-).
That's a good introduction to yourself, Boo. Welcome to this friendly meeting place with its thousands of freethinkers who recognise how religions deceive and control vulnerable people beginning with innocent children.
