Hey, y’all. The name’s Robyn, and I’m an atheist.
At the moment, I’m taking a course in African American Rhetoric and Early African-American literature during the same semester, and I’ve been thinking about black people and religion (particularly Christianity) a lot lately. Not that I ever really get away from it—my mother is reasonably pious (I say ‘reasonably’ because she isn’t a minister, but she volunteers, is on a lot
of church committees, and, well, she prays) and I do
live in the Bible Belt. The stuff’s everywhere.
Anyway, I’ll rant about Christianity in particular, later. I’ll just introduce myself for now. :) ( a little long, but perhaps interesting?Collapse )
Guess I’ll just jump on in here.
