 G'day from South Australia, Cranky here.

Why Cranky?  Read on:

A recovering catholic for 50 years, today an opinionated geriatric with an inquiring mind. I try to keep my mind open, with varying  degrees of success.

Self descriptive labels,[which can vary according to mood and mental state] include; agnostic atheist, skeptic, cynic, materialist, and misanthrope.

Lot of old farts here.  A few ex-Catholics.

Welcome.

I am married to a recovering Catholic.  Oh, and welcome, Fredd; may your stay be long and pleasant.

Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

Hello, Fre--err Cranky. Enjoy your stay. I know what you're thinking, but we are definitely not cannibals. Also, stay out of the basement.

Hi Cranky! I've always wanted to be an ex-Catholic, but I had to settle for ex-Baptist, instead! LOL

May you enjoy your time with us, and win all your rock-paper-scissors-lizard-Spock contests. :-P

If you are as you say, welcome.  Hesitate to admire a misanthrope, though.
