'Coming Out' as an Atheist

"Coming Out" as an Atheist

I use the phrase “Coming Out” because in many ways coming out as an Atheist is very similar to coming out as gay. It really depends on the types of people that make up your family but I am sure there are some people for whom coming out as an atheist would actually be harder then coming out as gay. I seem to remember someone making a joke about telling your parents you are an atheist so that you can say that you were just kidding and that you were just gay.

See this video for the reaction that young ex-Catholic got when he came out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8Aq00yJSxo
