Hello
Hello,

I am one of your lurkers but had to come out to reply to one particular post so might as well introduce myself now that I have done that.

I was introduced to TTA couple of years ago by my boyfriend who is from US, I myself come from Finland. Finland is very secular and my family has been atheists for a while. I don’t know about my great grandparents but my 83 year old grandmother included is an atheist. I knew US had a great deal of religious people but I never knew just how bad the situation was before I met my boyfriend. I have listened to a lot of podcasts and read a lot of threads but they still astound me. They really shouldn’t anymore but I can’t get over it I guess. The sheer amount of stupidity seems impossible to me.

I never had any problems with religion or religious people as that is such a non-issue here. I actually had to ask my boyfriend to be kind to them if he ever came across one as “our” religious people are positively adorable in comparison with their counterparts in US. Religion does not play a strong role in our politics, it is not something you witness every day and they keep to themselves a lot. They are in the news from time to time but it’s mostly harmless.

So there’s a little background information on me. I don’t know how active I will be on this forum but fear not, I will be reading and cheering you all on. The level of knowledge and patience between you is a joy to witness.

I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.
