← Atheism in America

I've mentioned in the past my issues with attending funerals for family members because it always entails my travelling to NC and dealing with my uber religious relatives down there and the resulting church madness that ensues. Having been and atheist for some 20 plus years now its a very bizarre thing to observe up front with such a detachment from it. And equally dsiturbing is the way God and Christ get worked into everything regardless of the subject. Being a stranger in your own family is a strange thing.

I agree with Nunbeliever that Godlessness isn't the last taboo in the US, I can say that religion is connected to virtually every other taboo we have especially with the amount of fundamentalism this country has. This country's decisions on so many levels seems ultimately connected to whether or not the bible approves of it, and it's killing it from the inside.
