Hello you godless people
.....From another godless person. Been hovering around this site for a while and finally jumped in. I am from the UK , born into a part Irish part English catholic family, mum was a teacher in a catholic school ( the one I attended as a kid!) and we did the the whole mass every day, praying to saints for this that and the other, going to church on high days and holy days thing until one day in my early teens it just struck me that I wasn't buying this any more. And that as they say was that.
Anyway here we are a good forty years later, married with two teenage kids raised outside the religion and none the worse for it. Still happily atheistic. Nice to meet you all.

Welcome aboard fellow Brit Wink

I also have some Irish family and went through the whole catholic school system although my family were never that religious.

Have fun and see you around the board Big Grin
