Hey! I'm Hanna!
Hello! I became an Atheist about a year ago after being raised Southern Baptist. Things just never quite made sense to me. I didn't like how the church seemed so blatantly sexist, but tried to justify that... because God??? It took me a long time to figure things out for myself, but listening to the Thinking Atheist podcast has become a part of my regular routine. It brings me great comfort to know there are other people out there daring to question religious indoctrination!
I am looking for ways to add to the conversation and find people who have had similar experiences because it's difficult being a woman and living around a lot of people who believe in God when I don't anymore.

If the pope went to Zumba class, then he may be eligible to spend eternity in my special unicorn mountain kingdom. Cool

Man made God in his own image, misogynist, xenophobic, jealous, petty, blood-thirsty, and vengeful.

Welcome to the club, great to have you!

Welcome Hanna!

Tee-hee, perhaps you could add an "h" to Hanna and make it a palindrome....reads the same going backwards as front wards . Hannah. Big Grin

But you're welcome here even with one "H". Thumbsup

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: Hey! I'm Hanna!
Gave you a rep point right away, as I too am a former Southern Baptist and I know all too well the indoctrination and social pressure you have to overcome in order to step into the light of freethought.

Welcome to TTA. Hope you find a home here. Smile

Welcome.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.
