Hello
Hi

Just introducing myself. I saw a reference to this site by GoodWithoutGod on the Yahoo news website.

I spend a lot of my time on there arguing with people (usually religious people) who think that homosexuals are an abomination. I'm straight but have a lot of friends who are gay and it really upsets me that people who are supposed to be abiding by Jesus' rule of loving thy neighbour think that that only applies if they're not homosexual.

I've been an atheist since I was old enough to think for myself and started questioning what I was being taught in school, so in my mid teens. I'm now in my 50s.

I'm from the UK, where being an atheist isn't seen as odd and nobody questions it. I would hate to live somewhere where I would be in the minority and potentially be persecuted for not believing in whatever god that culture supported.

Misty
