panel discussion: spiritual choices in the black community

Sorry, this is an advertisement. But when I saw it today, I just thought others might appreciate it:

Click on the ad to get to IG's (Reginald Finley) website. :)

I really, really wish I could go to this open panel discussion, but alas, I am in North Carolina. Is anyone in Georgia, or would be able to go?

Guess I’ll just jump on in here.

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 )

Hi. I'm Xay, and I'm agnostic.

I was raised Primitive Baptist, but I left the church when I was 16. It's been almost 10 years, and my folks are still convinced I'll join a church somewhere. I often hear, "We didn't raise you like that," from them, but I've stopped taking offense to it. I never understood how we're supposed to believe stuff we can't see or observe through scientific means. I used to believe in Santa, but my dad told me Santa didn't pay for any of my presents. I was 4, so I guess the seeds of doubt were planted early. ;)

It's tough living in the Bible Belt when you don't want a Bible.
