Re: Financial Times Article on "Closeted" Atheists

Hello all, I just joined the forum.  For some strange reason, this thread is the first one I read.  All I can say is I am greatly impressed by the calm, rational, caring way this "hot topic" is being discussed.  Maybe there is hope for humanity, in spite of what the national news seems to focus on. ...
