Just recently I heard about this forum on the PoI pod-cast, which I listen to every time a new one comes out, and I love. This site looks very interesting and I hope to find many interesting things to discuss here. There are few people for me to talk to about the kinds of things I assume are in this forum, so I am very excited to join it.
For the last 2 years I have been living in Texas for my job, and let me say that there is not exactly a sympathetic ear for anything anti-religious, or even questioning religion in this area that I know of. It’s not the kind of area that I particularly enjoy. Also, I have a very young child and wish none of this kind of environment upon him (we’re moving very soon).
Along with my intro, I’d like to add that a friend of mine got me into listening to pod-casts, or I never would have even found the PoI one. If anyone is interested his is at http://www.unimpressedcorps.libsyn.com, and mine is at http://web.mac.com/matts30. They are both explicit and I would discourage anyone who cannot handle that to listen.
