Greetings, Bridgett! Seriously, black type on a black background? I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
That's how I felt too when I found the Nexus, though I wouldn't call St. Louis itself particularly religious (the rest of Missouri, however... *LOL*). I do have family who are, however, but they don't know where I am in the entire scheme of things.
