Are There Any Atheists In Barbados?

I always enjoy reading My Secret Atheist Blog, written by Quebec blogger Godless Poutine.

Today, he talks about his apprehension about possibly moving with his wife to Barbados. His late father in law was originally from there, and his wife still has quite a few family members on the island.



He has been there to visit before, and talks about his experiences. He loves the island and it's climate, but one thing concerns him. The nation is heavily Christian, 95 % of the people claim Christianity as their faith, and it is deeply embedded in the culture.

He wonders if he will be fully accepted into the culture there if people find out that he and his wife are atheists Read his post, The State of Atheism in Barbados for more information.

Don't just stop with that post, keep reading through his blog, he's a great blogger, and he is the man that inspired me to start blogging, his help when I started out, including letting me write a guest post series on my life, helped to get my blog off the ground, and heading towards where it is today.

  2. I haven't read it yet. I come from a place where 95% of the population are christians... that means that 80% won't care about 2 atheists, as long as you don't carry cartels :D Seriously, I think it will be fine. If you are easy going, they'll love you. My opinion.

No spam, proselytizing, or personal attacks, such comments will never see the light of day around here.

Disagreeing with me is fine (I encourage it), but have some decency when writing your comment
