"They sound like the kind of Christians I meet in college. I remember my New Testament teacher, who happened to be a Protestant clergyman, saying that there is no proof that Jesus was anything other than a simple rabbi who angered the Romans. He then…"
"In most states, such an initiative would not win broad public support. The best way to defeat this measure is to run for public office and have someone who actually support the ban on atheists in office challenge your candidacy on the basis on the…"
"I grew to adulthood in the deep South, and I share many of your view points. I feel there is something in conservative Christianity that sounds a familiar chord in mindset of most Southerners. Before I attended collage, I did blue collar work in my…"
"Such all laws have long been unconstitutional. The Supreme court incorporated the 1st Amendment "freedom of religion" by way of the 14th Amendment to include the states in a number of opinions, and held that this includes the right to hold…"
"The worse drug I've ever used was, without a doubt, Topamax. I was talking a high level of Topamax while attended law school. Its effect on my cognitive skills cannot be overstated. I'm amazed I ever graduated."
"The first thing I would suggest is taking a greater role in school board elections. I was once a history teacher, but now I see the Texas Board of Education distorting American history just as they do science. I will never vote for any school board…"
"I live on the Chicago Southside. I moved to Chicago almost ten years ago to attend Loyola University. That's right, a Jesuit school. I worked on the Chicago Southside as a public school teacher for slightly over a decade before returning to…"
"I miss the manic episodes I experienced before my doctor came up with the particular batch of meds I now take, but I don't miss crashing after a period of mania. That depression was often hard to take."
"I'm not allowed caffeine as well. It used to fuel my manic excursions before I was medicated. I think my Doctor just uses "interactions with meds" as an excuse to get me away from caffeine. Damn, but I miss it."
"I'm not sure, but I'm guessing it would depend on the caseload they are currently carrying in your area. If you are really forced to sue for your rights, hire an attorney to take you on a contingency basis. This should be used only as a…"
"I agree with Mohamed. Even speak to her supervisor if necessary. If you continue to be harassed with Christian literature, delete it without comment. If you are personally harassed or ill-used because your lack of religious beliefs, then contact the…"
"I began and spent my 10+ year teaching career as a teacher in two middle schools on the Chicago Southside. I began in the poorest urban neighborhood in the United States. Over my first Christmas holiday, the local gang shot out my widows. After five…"
"T am bi-polar in addition to suffering ADHD and PTSD. I have fallen to suicidal depths during my depressive periods but have soared to triumphant highs in my manias. Now I take tons of medication that alleviate both extremes. Still I hate my…"
Greetings, Larche! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since April 2010. <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.
