If you're an atheist

You. Have. Got. To. Read. This: Natalie Angier's speech to the Center for Inquiry, with her take on atheism and raising a godless child.

One piece of advice she had: Live somewhere where you won't be an oddball because of your lack of religion. Big cities, blue states, university towns—hey! What do you know? I've got all three covered. Sweet!

(Thanks to Eric Zorn for linking to the transcript.)

*sigh* And I've got none of the three.

Plus, my wife's a Catholic. So I don't have it quite so easy when telling my kids these kind of things. I'm trying to lead by example, and I'm hoping that when they come to us with questions, they'll see my side.

And my wife is pretty sure they will, and she fears it.

So, Mrs. Charlie isn't bound to come around to seeing things your way? Hmm, that's a tricky mixed marriage...
