COMPULSORY Q (no membership if not answered): Pls describe yr position on religion/faith e.g. atheist, naturalist, 'agnostic', religious doubter, religious, OR any description that best describes you. (Not to label you, just to know group make-up)

I'm an atheist... though I have moments when I think I'm agnostic... but today I'm definitely an atheist :)

COMPULSORY Q: Why do you want to join? (if faith/religion bothers you, what aspects in particular? (Helps us tailor activities to your concerns (within our remit of "peacefully promote reason/atheism")). Pls write as much or as little as you like.

I'm looking to meet like-minded people, and to learn more about atheist activism. I am very disturbed by the ways in which people (and governments) use religion to impinge upon the rights of others- marriage equality, women's reproductive health etc.

Where did you hear about us?

I just did a search for "atheist" on meetup.

(You're welcome as a social or even a silent member, & there's absolutely no pressure - but would you want to be involved (at some stage) in actively challenging faith in any way? Petitions, leafleting etc, or something else?

I'm not sure yet...

If so, what kind of issues are most emotive for you? What kind of activism do you prefer - humourous/cheeky or more direct? Any other ideas you'd like to share at the moment?

No answer yet

Introduction

I think I've been an atheist for a while, but I only recently realised it- I blame a lifetime of Catholic schooling.
