This past summer one of my best friends died.

At his service, the Priest kept talking about God and hoe Joe was a Christian who loved Christ and was now at Christ's side. I wanted to stand up an scream! Joe HATED the Christian Church! He was no Christian and he did not believe in Jesus or Santa Clause or the Tooth Fairy.

I held my tongue because I knew this service wasn't for Joe. It was for Joe's family, and they WERE Christians.

Joe's death was one of the things that got me off the Agnostic Fencepost and publicly acknowledge my own atheism.
