Hello,

I go by the name of Brother Jeff online. I am a former fundamentalist Christian who is now a happily free atheist. I was a believer for 15 years of my life, but I embraced reality when I came across a great deal of information that proved to me that Christianity wasn’t true. I found it at sites such as http://www.infidels.org . Anyway, I grew up in Texas, but I moved to Alaska a couple of years ago, and I love it here! Glory!

I run an atheistic website, which is located at http://www.religionisbullshit.org . Feel free to check it out!

I’m looking forward to participating here! Glory!

[quote author=“BrotherJeff”]Hello,

Welcome BrotherJeff!

I’m new to this forum too.
I’m in NYC and belong to several CFI communities in the area.
I’ve already had some interesting discussions here and I’m sure you will too.
Good to have you “aboard”.

It’s just a fun expression I use. I picked it up from the folks at Landover Baptist.

Brother Jeff

Re: Hello

Welcome!  Glad to have you.

One question - what’s with the picture?  Are you screaming?  Are you in pain?

I generally refrain from using Christian’s lingo, even to mock them.  For me it reduces my dialog to their level.

Again. greetings.

Wes

Hi Wes,

About the picture - I am known on my site and on a few other forums for my humor. It’s supposed to be just a funny face.

I’ve never actually heard a Christian use the phrase “Glory!”, but I love it, so I use it. Glory!  smile

Thanks for the welcome!

Jeff:  My very Christian grandmother used the phrase “Glory be” all the time.  Since I do not hang around with Christians I’m not in a position the really know what they say.  However a number of Christian songs use the word so I associate it with their lingo.  Glory to you too! :D

Hello BrotherJeff,

I came from Florida and arrived in Texas.  Must have just missed you. lol grin

I also have a religious sounding name.  I find it interesting how many atheist—automatically assume that I am a fundie. grin  It just goes to show you that jumping to conclusions occurs everywhere. grin

Do you get a chance to snow ski up there? 

Later,
Elder Norm

Glory!

I just saw the movie “The Apostle”, with Robert Duvall playing an evangelical Texas preacher.  And yes, he says “Glory”, as well as “Praise Him” and the like.

And all I could think about was BrotherJeff…
