Warm hugs

How are you and your wife? Man, coming from the Philipines, Catholicism (or other religions) is just hard to remove from our system. The brainwashing was just so strong that the whole country is infected.

Hi Doug,

I'm from Apia, been spreading some atheist love and arguments to friends and family here since 2006.

Thanks for the welcome.

Hey Doug! Just letting you know we have a new member from Samoa. Not sure whether he's already a friend of yours. If not, you might like to make contact. Gus Crichton from Apia. Hugs to you and sweet Leanor! - Kris

Hi Doug,
I'm really not sure how far Sugar Grove is from Reston -- apparently, there are two "Sugar Grove" locations ( As much as I hate to say it, though, either would be in "bible country." I have to wonder when humanity is going to grow up and stop believing in myths. It's the third millennium, and still the delusions persist.

Thanks for the friend request, Doug. I see you grew up not too far from where I'm at. Looks like you've been enjoying a stimulating and fulfilling life. Be well.

Don't know where Sugar Grove is, Doug, but I'm about 30 minutes west of Fredericksburg.

Hi Doug,

Thanks Ramon;
Here there is a different church on every corner.
The Catholics, and the Congregational Christian Church of American Samoa, and the Assembly of God, are the main ones tjhat like to exploit the Poor people by demanding of them more than they can afford.
Lets keep in touch, and do by all means stay in touch with Kristy on the Aussie Net work.
Later Ramon;

Hi Doug,

The Atheist community back here is tiny, but it's starting to get more vocal. I foresee a lot of activity in the next few months, particularly because of the increased participation of the Catholic church in government affairs.

Nice to hear from you again Debbie.
It sounds like you and your husband hit a happy medium, which is by far the best way to go as far as I am concerned.
My wife and I are both Card Carrying Atheiests with American Atheist.
I am trying to get "The New Order of Hawkeyes Divine Deliverance" off the ground here in order to allow these that wish to do so, a chance to converse freely on my blog, or by mail.
People here are badgered by both Culture, and the Churches, with 90% of them wishing they had never seen the inside of a church building.
They are really not afforded free speech, nor are they permitted to live their lives as free thinkers.
I have been here for the past 22 years, and I truly rfeel for some of the native samoans in this respect.
You can go to my blog, and I would appreicate your comments.

My Father worked the Mines for a long while before plugging his way north, to end up in Pennsylvania, which is where His last kid was born; {Me} Ha Ha.
You can also view som cool Photos of the Tenth Pacific Festival of Arts on My Atheist Nexus site, as well as on {Doug Harrington}

I will be posting more photos later on.
By for now;

Doug, my background isn't quite as harsh as yours. I was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio. My parents are originally from West Virginia, but from Mingo County, a more backwoods part of WV then where I live now. They are still pretty secluded there. My parents moved to Dayton for employment as WV has never had much in the way of jobs except for coal mines and my dad had no desire to be a miner. Anyway he got the opportunity to manage a grocery store in Beckley and so when I was in high school we moved to WV. As far as religion my mother was raised a Baptist but doesn't really believe in anything, though she doesn't say that she doesn't believe, the only comment she makes is "When your dead, your dead". I think that explains it all. Growing up in Dayton my mother sent me and my sisters to a Baptist church close to the house. We could walk over. Now that I reflect on it and I don't remember her going, I have come to the conclusion that she just sent us to get rid of us for awhile. I listened to their messages but never did see or feel or believe what they where talking about. I did have a Sunday school teacher who commented every time that everyone was baptised except Debbie. But she never got me. So as an adult I didn't explore the issue nor did I attend church. Then my husband started going to a chrismatic church so I attended with him once and frankly told him that he was free to go but I wouldn't attend, that I would not be free to be myself as an unbeliever, a progressive and as a women's libber. So we explored other churches till he came to the conclusion it was just a bunch of crap. We occassionally go to the UUA, they are a mixed bag of individuals who don't care what you believe as everyone believes or disbelieves differently from everyone else. I could tell you about the co-worker who hated me for being an "unbeliever" but that is another story. Debbie

Sorry I haven't responded earlier, but I am at a computer all day so when I am at home I don't get on much. Anyway, thanks for welcoming me. I have been looking for a community of Atheists I guess you could say. I used to get on the chat at a number of years ago, but it got very hateful,so I quit chatting. It only takes a few to ruin it for everybody. I did met some like minded people that I enjoyed chatting with. Debbie

I keep running out of time!

Hi Doug! Sorry I've been slack in getting back to you. I've been ill for the past 10 days with my damned Chronic Fatigue, but I'm feeling a lot better today. Will try to catch up with your column and blogs in the next day or so. So great to see you here. Hugs, Kris

Hey Doug! Great to see you here! A VERY warm welcome to you. I see you've found the Aussie/Kiwi/South Pacific group already.
