    So I’ve been struggling with this a lot lately. We get so mad at Christians/Buddhists/Jewish/(insert any other religion here) for being close-minded. This entire tirade is about how this gal moved out of Springfield, and then out of Overland Park, because the crowd was too Christian or too closed-minded. Yet you state quite bluntly that you enjoy being a part of SOMA because of how closed-minded they are – which is a contradiction to the very name of the organization.

    Is this a group for atheists – sure. But is it open-minded? Absolutely not. It seems to me that SOMA is just as ‘closed’ as any of the religious organizations that you try to marginalize. The only difference is that you feel okay with it because you are finally the one marginalizing. Funny how that works.

      I don’t understand where you are getting your interpretation of what I wrote. SOMA is a VERY open-minded group of people. Yes majority are young 18-22, and with that comes questioning, debating, holding strong to a stance that may need many pieces of evidence for someone to see that point of view. But that doesn’t mean the organization is close-minded.

      Why not come to a meeting? Check us out; see if we really are “close-minded” as you assume. Reasonfest is coming up next weekend. That is a perfect opportunity to meet people from all walks of life around the community. It is completely free and open to the public and we have people from a variety of world views attend the 2-day community event.
