Hey from New Jersey
Glad to be here. I'm an atheist (why else would I be here if I wasn't lol) and was raised in an Evangelical Fundamentalist household. My parents do not bother me much; they've more or less left me alone and have this bitter "you're going to hell" undertone. My dad is much worse though- he follows Jimmy Swaggart as if he is a God of his own. My mom is Catholic and I was raised Catholic. When I was 16, I came out as Atheist and found out a lot more about my dad and lost such respect for him. He said "you gonna tell me you're a queer next?!". I'm 19 now, and usually leave him alone. I live at home still and go to Rowan Uni and study Radio Broadcasting and History. Through the last few years as learning more about my Atheism, I've come to define what I follow as that I truly doubt there is a god, but I really cannot totally say no. I do not like religion at all.

Atheism has really helped me a lot. I love reading philosophy and can only hope that my parents may start questioning their own faiths. My dad has such horrendous beliefs and I just am shocked that that is the man that raised me. Anyway, I am glad to be here and cannot wait for the upcoming conversation!

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.

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.
