Nope, I can't say I'm familiar with ATI. What does it stand for? I grew up in a small independent Christian church (with pentecostal/evangelical leanings) in the rural midwest. I'm the only one in my family so far to have questioned the religion, so it's tough sometimes trying to relate to them. I guess one fortunate thing is that living several states away now I only see them a couple of times a year, and the initial firestorm has died down and I think they realize that their time spent with me is too valuable to waste it on a fiery religious debate where nobody wins.
I have recently discovered that the rave community, Burning Man community, and fetish communities (which seem to have a lot of overlap) in Atlanta are chock full of some interesting and very non-conventional people! I love it!
