I've considered myself to be an atheist for most of my life, and I wouldn't go anywhere near any evangelicals or other fundamentalists. However lately I've become really interested in the Quakers, or Friends. I've not yet summoned up the courage to attend a meeting, but I think I will, one day. What draws me to them is that they seem to be amazingly tolerant, not just in terms of gender, sexuality etc, but also in terms of faith - there is even a non- theist group. What holds them together is a commitment to truth, justice, simplicity and peace, all things I wish I had had more of in my life. They appear to be quite a welcoming lot, but I am very anxious about being rejected or not wanted, so I haven't yet had the nerve to put it to the test.
