"Conceal, why don't you go the county  courthouse instead of a church?  You should be able to tell the official what you want him to say, or not say.  You could even put it in writing, and have him/her sign it."

Getting Married

My fiance and I got a marriage license, however, it expired last week.  I realize that it is important to me to be sure to find someone who will not engage in superstitious talk at our wedding ceremony.  I've looked online for local officiants, with each one promoting spirituality in some form.  I don't want to hear words like that on my wedding day!  My experience with people has been that communication is a difficult thing.  I can interview these people and they may seem to agree, but in the end they will decide what to say, and whether or not to add a quick "God Bless You" or "May the Universe Guide You" in there thinking it won't do any harm.  I have to hear this stuff all the time.  I'd like my wedding day not to have it.  So I'm searching for an officiant who is also an atheist/antitheist.What has your experience been with atheistic weddings?  I attended two of my fnon-believing friends' weddings last year, who apparently didn't care as much as I do about the officiant, and…See More

About Me:
Childhood - Mormonish, Adulthood - Islam; The rest of my life -- non-religious, anti-theist, humanist, earthling who believes in each human being's and animal's intrinsic value and ability to change, learn, and grow. Of course, we can also change, regress and become diminished. My new career path in this Bible-Thumping city/state/area entails that I not reveal my lack of religion/disdain for religion.

Happy New Year's Eve to all of my fellow non-religionists!

I made a plan.  It was that my sweetie come home and take a nap so that we can go party in a public place with at least a glass of alcohol -- hating champagne, that won't be our drink of choice.  The nap is done, time to dress and go.  I wonder if they will have mistletoe, the granter of mystical powers?

Can we be Faithful Friends and Non-theists too?

Are we the Faithless?  NO!

Hearing non-theists described in a list of people, those with faith -- a long list of Christians, Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus and more; and the faithless, my feeling, and I emphasize that, I felt it was painful to hear.  We are faithless?  It sounds awful.  It has the feeling of fingers scratching on a chalkboard at midnight waking you up bad.  And that was just a newscaster trying…

Nah, I don't suspect that anyone has any problems involved with accidentally sticking their address up on here.  Junk-mail companies don't get their lists off of the internet like this.  It's just one of those general caution things.

Yeah, I know that Mormons and Muslims both shot off from the same Abrahamic root, although Mormonism got there by way of Christianity.  I take it you meant something more about the presentation of the two religions?  Sort of how they feel to adherents, in terms of social effects and such?

I've only ever been a Catholic, and I had pretty much decided that it was all crap, by the age of 10 or 12 or so, so I didn't exactly have a broad set of religious experiences, before I turned 18 and told my parents I was done with church.

Heh, well Shari'a is unconstitutional already, but that doesn't stop legislators in some of the crazier Bible Belt states from passing laws making it illegal ... and ironically, those laws are unconstitutional, as well, since they're a blatant violation of the first amendment.  They'd try to make Islam illegal, too, if they thought they could get away with it, but even they seem to realize that that would be going a little far.

Heh, that website address section is meant for the URL of a blog, YouTube channel, or something similar.  Not your post office box.  You might want to fix that ... not that a post office box is as much of an issue as with those I occasionally see listing their street address.

That's a pretty crazy background.  How the heck did you move from Mormonism to Islam?  Hell, for that matter, how did you find a Muslim in Tennessee?  Didn't you know that Islam is illegal, there and in Oklahoma?  ^.^
