I grew up Lynchburg, Virginia. Lynchburg is a wonderful smaller city, but Jerry Falwell and the "Moral" Majority had such a strong presence. Even as a child I saw much hypocrisy. Also, my parents are British, which means they are extremely private about religion and politics. It wasn't until I was an adult that I learned they didn't "believe" and had a liberal view. Just grateful they let me from my own ideas and didn't force dogma down my throat.
I work in the DoD environment, I could use a little reassurance there really are free thinkers and not just sheep and shepherds out there.
Hopefully some rational opinions, informed questions and a little humor.
I moved to Denver from the East in 07. Colorado is such a welcoming state, and it's a new state without the strong societal hangups prevalent in my hometown. I want to meet like minded people with whom I can exchange ideas and forge new friendships.
