You're kidding. There's a god damned collection plate? I'll keep my money in my pocket until I decide your club is worth joining. There are two types of secularists: I'm looking to avoid the angry ones who wear t-shirts that say "atheist" and antagonize religious people; I'm looking for conversation with mature, responsible adults.
I attended a Lutheran grade school where my individuality and critical thinking were punished. Around thirteen, I lost my faith; around sixteen, I stopped being angry about it. At twenty-five I'm searching for people with whom I might click socially.
