I am a 73 year old white American. I look and sound like your standard white American. But I am not. I have 5 daughters, and 2 sons. Between them they have 3 mothers and 4 fathers. There are 2 religions and some atheists among them. One of them is black. The spouse of one is of Hispanic descent. One of my children lives an alternative life style and is openly gay. For 6 years, I was a single parent and raised 3 of my children alone. My family has had crosses burned on our front lawn on two separate occasions. Once when we brought home our adopted 6 week old black son and again 18 months later. One of my children was murdered. I am hardly your average white guy. I am repulsed by bigotry of all sorts and believe in civil rights, human rights, justice, freedom, tolerance, common sense, decency for all humans.
It does not bother me that people believe in a god or two, but I am very opposed to religion.
I am a anarchist-conservative-liberal. So, depending on the topic I may be anywhere on the compass. So don’t be surprised and for sure don’t always expect where I might stand on a topic. Well, except for the topic of superstition. In that case I am very much an atheist. I do not believe in demons, devils, angels, gods, spirits, etc. Consequently, that part of my personality may find its way into any topic.
