Wow, an atheist-oriented message board that I haven’t joined yet! I’d better jump right in. I’m EverLastingGodStopper. I’m not anti-religion, though; the only "God" I’m stopping is the one in the US government. I’m just a simple secular activist, my focus is on fighting theocracy and building atheist community.
You may call me ELGS, or just Stopper, but many people know me by my real name, Janice Rael. I have an official bio floating around on the internets: [quote:71ccd074f2]Janice Rael is a grassroots political activist, atheist community activist, and public speaker. Residing in Southern New Jersey with her husband and two children, Rael is known to Internet users as "EverLastingGodStopper," a reference to her activism on the church-state forefront.
Rael is the President of the Delaware Valley Chapter of Americans United for Separation and State, an at-large Board Member of the Freethought Society of Greater Philadelphia, and is the Public Relations Director on the Board of the Internet Infidels.[/quote:71ccd074f2]
For reference, here are some of the groups and sites I’m affiliated with:
Delaware Valley Chapter (PA/NJ/DE), Americans United for Separation of Church and State, http://www.dvau.org
Freethought Society of Greater Philadelphia, http://www.fsgp.org
Internet Infidels Discussion Board: http://www.iidb.org
Internet Infidels/Secular Web: http://infidels.org
I’m also active on dozens of Yahoo-based listservs and other message boards. I’m likely to be mostly a lurker here on CFI forums, although I would appreciate Private Messages or Instant Messages from other CFIers, alerting me to important threads or posts here on CFI.
It’s nice to see the CFI board, I feel that all of our leadership groups should provide online homes for their group members and supporters. I’m a big fan of online atheist communities, and I’m glad to be a new user in a new nonbelief group. Thanks for having me!
