I was raised Catholic but fairly recently came to realize that I am probably an atheist.   Religion was never something that really connected with me.  This year has been a journey of self-discovery for me, and what I discovered about myself surprised me a bit.  I’ve come to realize that I’m opinionated and starting to gain the confidence to express those opinions.  With that, I am trying to have the good judgment to know when to spout off and when to clam up.  Outside of my husband, my friends and family don’t know my stance on religion.  I’m not necessarily anti-religion, but I’ll be honest and tell you that the mention of god results in a visceral reaction, and not a good one.


Opinionated as I might be, I will never profess to be an expert at anything, be it politics, religion, or underwater basket weaving.  This blog is my opinion, you can disagree with it, but trying to change my opinion is quite like me trying to change yours…not likely to happen, so please don’t try.  What I write may not be cold hard facts.  If any facts are to be presented I will be quoting and linking to the original material and giving my opinion and reaction to those facts.  Please keep this in mind.  I know there are a minimum of two viewpoints to every issue.  Feel free to voice yours and disagree with mine, but please do it in a considerate manner.  Any drive-by comments that don’t contribute are at risk of deletion.  My blog, my decision.

I also wanted to thank him for encouraging atheists, agnostics, secularists, humanists, etc. to get out there and blog, if even anonymously. It’s one of the reasons I am going to try to come back to blogging.
