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.

My main concern is that it goes against common sense and rationalism. I consider myself a very rational person (sometimes to the point where it becomes annoying) and I feel that Western societies are not progressing the way they should be because of the lack of common sense and the effort put into religion.

(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?

Definitely. I have been involved in politics and activism since 2009 (not just regarding atheism but other topics as well).

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?

I think that anything that goes towards religious education on a high level (supported by state / regional body) should be put under pressure. It can be through protest or just organizing educational events, etc.

Introduction

I have been actively involved in one of the Atheist groups in Hungary, so I want to pursue this interest in the UK. I came to the UK in May 2012 living in Hungary before that. I work as a technical author for a software company in West London.
