Great music, great food, and a tasty hard cider are the best ways to weasel your way into my life.

I’ve lived in Florida for most of my life. Recently moved up to Michigan a year ago. I have a 1 1/2 year old little boy. He’s crazy and awesome. I work as a prep cook at a local restaurant. I love it and I’m using the experience to homebase a bakery hopefully within a year.

So let’s talk about philosophy and the absurdity of religion (besides the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, of course) and sip on some fantastic coffee or craft mead. I’m game if you are

I have two that constantly stick with me :)
Religious indoctrination is child abuse. Yes or no?I know this topic has been brought up before ...
Beatlesandsuch comments on May 30, 2018:
I, too was raised a Nazarene kid and it’s terrible to look back and see the level of indoctrination that I was submitted to without even knowing it. Like you, I started doubting at an early age and asking questions that were mostly met with “you have to have faith”. I was a rebellious teen and my rebellion was met with a lot of “sinner” finger pointing. I was a “dirty slut” for exploring sex in high school. My mother thought Kiss was a satanic band I listened to. You get the picture. I began to explore other religions my junior year of high school. Went to religious debates and conferences my senior year at a local university. It seems the more I explored, learned, and questioned, the more religion seemed useless. My point here, is that I lost a large chunk of my childhood believing that I was a bad kid because we are “all sinners”. That I had to recruit people to this particular deity. That somehow my upper-middle class white family was following the right god and dammit we were blessed. I feel cheated. It’s not fair that even now I question the morality of my sex life. That while some kids had fun summers at camps with canoes and shorty sloppy joes, I was singing Jesus songs and going to a nightly sermon. Hell, that I have been told it was “prayer” that saved my life during my battle with Leukemia and the “power of God” that I became pregnant with my son after 2 rounds of chemo and radiation. That I can’t even voice my opinion on certain topics at work because it’s a “Christian based workplace”. I hate it.
I filed for divorce from my wife of almost sixteen years today. It's mutual and we love each other, ...

Should I get an Atheist sticker for my car?

Fsm sticker for the win!
Who else feels compelled to hide their atheism from co-workers?
Beatlesandsuch comments on May 9, 2018:
I know how you feel. I live/work in the Bible Belt of Michigan and I’m a complete black sheep with my (lack of) beliefs. Technically, my workplace is a Christian organization and it’s frustrating and hard at times to keep my opinions and mouth out of certain conversations. I’ve heard coworkers discuss everything from abortion to gay rights with a “that’s a sin” mentality and it’s awful. I try not to bring up that I’m an atheist but sometimes I can’t help but blurt out how stupid their rationale is.
