I'm so glad I was looking around today and saw this board up! A place for non-believers to commiserate at last. Great to be here.


So I'm Kelly, mum of 3, an atheist since I was about 20ish, married for 12 years in August. I've actually started homeschooling my oldest this year in hope of giving him a more secular educational experience, among other things. He went to a public school previously, and they are supposed to be secular, but not in my little town....I drew the line when he came home from 4th grade telling me how the librarian told them the origin and meaning behind the candy cane ( it was christmas time)...how the red stripe was the blood of christ and the cane itself was 'J' for Jesus and so on. WTH? This is PUBLIC SCHOOL. I'm not anti-christian, but for cryin' out loud, if I wanted a christian education for my kids I would PAY for one privately, ya know?


Anyway, looking forward to meeting everyone!
