Greetings, Jenni! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since Aug. <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.
I lived in Utah for about 8 years (SLC and Logan) and I know how you feel. Salt Lake City was not too bad (tolerable even), but Logan was a little tough. Hang in there out in Utah. I still miss that beautiful state. We just couldn't take the religious majority and their hypocrisy any longer.
Hello Jenni. Welcome to this friendly meeting place with freethinkers who recognise that gods and religions are deceptions used to control vulnerable superstitious people, including defenceless children; and how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and even longer.
