It does no good, but when you are so marginalized in the rest of wider society, you search out a haven of people like yourself.

This is true for me. Instead of fighting the good fight on religious websites, as Metamag suggests (and I'm not disputing his point, because it is well-taken), it's nice to hang out and occasionally enjoy some comraderie in a place where like-minded folks can be found.

It's lonely in America for outspoken atheists, and I'm reluctant to spend the precious time I do have making myself feel even lonelier by posting on religious websites.
