Happy Heathens

Welcome to what we think (humbly of course) is one of the best groups on LibraryThing. You may not always agree with everyone here, but you will find serious, lively debate and some decidedly silly conversations--we don't take ourselves seriously all the time, so please don't hesitate to join in.

noun derogatory
a person who does not belong to a widely held religion (especially Christianity, Judaism, or Islam) as regarded by those who do.

--OED 11th edition

Don't go to church? Atheist or agnostic? Believe in multiple gods? Are you a deist, Hindu, Buddhist, or a disillusioned Christian, Catholic, Jew, et cetera? Well, you're welcome here! Join in the fun.
