I just wanted to start a thread to introduce myself a little bit lol
I’m 23 years old and, admittedly, a little new to the secular world (c. 2 years) but I’m loving it. I was raised Lutheran in a small Missouri town where to think differently from the social norm is to be ostracized. I think it’s safe to say that I have a personal grievance with faith, but I have a passion for secularism for a bigger reason. I see all the effects of people blindly following a cause (i.e. The Crusades, The Holocaust, New Horizons Youth Ministries and not to mention the racism and bigotry) and feel not only a desire, but a responsibility as an intelligent being to stand up to it.
Hopefully that didn’t sound all dramatic or anything, but I wanted you guys to have a basic understanding of why I’m here.
