i like the outfit, except for the shoes. and would wear it if it came in my size, even though living in the bible belt i would get ten kinds of hell for it.
have to agree with insanmonster. i'm an atheist but i respect other people`s religions. and they should respect my choice of not having one. however it seems that no matter where i live i have to be extra careful in not disclosing my atheism to anyone other than very close friends. either people want to argue with me or want to convert me, even though i am interested in neither.

Alright, let me give my two cents on this convo. I am an atheist, so if you want take my words with a grain of salt but I think I make an important point. The founding fathers WERE secular and all of the BS that SOME (I cannot emphasize that more) christians spout is ridiculous, this is not and will hopefully never be a Christian nation. (USA) I would also point out that I am not necessarily against religion, I have some friends that probably wouldn't be alive today without it (they were going through difficult times and were having trouble coping). My hope is that those who are religious and those who are not would learn to live amongst each other without trying to influence those around them. For example many of my friends are religious, I would even say most of my friends are religious but we get along because we understand and respect the differences between us. We can even have conversations about religion without fighting and I wish everyone would strive to be able to do the same
