Hello from Ohio
Hello all! I was raised in the Methodist church, but knew from an early age that something just didn't feel right. The only reason I didn't ever put up much of a fuss is that all my friends went to my church and we had a pretty good time together in the youth group. Fast forward to today. I am married (my second marriage) to the love of my life. She is truly wonderful in every way, except that her father is a Methodist preacher. Ugh...I know. I would describe my wife very, very loosely as a Christian. She loves the hymns, the memories it brings up for her about her grandmothers, and the golden rule. Other than that, I'm not sure even she knows what attracts her to Christianity. She's a very level-headed, rational person, but I've been unable to completely bring her to atheism. Anyway, that's a bit about me. I'm glad to be here and hope to find allies in my fight against the ridiculousness that is religion. Cheers!

Welcome to the forum.

Hello.

NOTE: Member, Tomasia uses this site to slander other individuals. He then later proclaims it a joke, but not in public.
I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.
