This sounds like a great topic, but, the link is broken.

Bummer.

Still, a good ideal to take. Being honest with yourself instead of going with (apparently) popular opinion. It took me a long time to get there.

I'm grateful for social networks, where I've been able to connect with loads of people who are fine stating their beliefs, without fear of backlash (I inadvertantly came out as atheist at my last job (when everyone was sharing their excuses why they hadn't gone to church on easter) and it was uncomfortable afterward, always been asked to defend that, or told I wouldn't understand something, or being asked about issues that were clearly bogus, just ugh, no. Plus so many people believe they shouldn't associate with non-believers, so, I've kept it under wraps, so as not to hurt my job prospects when applying to a hiring manager I know is religious.).

I wonder if it would be different if I weren't living in the midwest?

This week I blogged about stopping with excuses and seeking truth (not what mainstream media or religion tells us). Having a greater perspective and being honest with myself has made me healthier and my life more meaningful .
