Wink Newbie here!
Hello to everyone!

I'm not really good at this whole 'introducing yourself' business. So forgive me if this post comes across as socially awkward as it feels! Laughat

I'm a 31yo Atheist from the UK.
I've been 'god free' from several years now. However I've been lucky enough to be born into a fairly secular family. Some of them will identify themselves as Roman catholic, but weddings and funerals seems to be the limit of their churchgoing Wink So tearing away the grip of religion wasn't too difficult for me.

Reading a few tales from some of you across the pond I feel pretty lucky in this respect, where openly gay atheists such as myself are routinely threatened with eternal damnation, violence & family abandonment. No

Anyway, this forum seems like a nice place to kick back, so maybe I'll stick around for a while! Wink
