Hi to Robert M Speeter, and welcome to this friendly meeting place with freethinkers like you who recognise that gods are phoney and religion is a great fraud aimed at controlling vulnerable superstitious people, including especially defenceless children; and
how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and even longer.
I can definitely sympathize with why you'd be in need of contact with an atheist community. I am from up north (Lewiston), and I feel like it should almost be a part of the bible belt. I'm glad to be in Saginaw right now, although it's right outside of Midland and Bay City which aren't much better! Hope you find what you are looking for at A/N!
