May the God I don't believe in bless the Northeast, the most enlightened corner of civilization in America.

The north east? Uh yeah, no. Last time I checked, the North East is where all the Chassids live. Enlightened? Maybe not so much.

The southeast is where it's at for enlightened thinking. We've got Rabbi Frank down here and we've got unicorns at our gay weddings. Who brings that nuttiness to the United States? The Christians? No! It's the Jews!

We've got progressive police.

I will see your unicorn weddings and raise you Clown Mass:




And the Halloween Mass with the priest dressed as a purple dinosaur telling people to gather around for "The Barney Blessing":




Still photo from the latter, there's a priest in that dinosaur:

Actually, after watching both videos it may be time to hop over to the Deconversion stories thread.

Need to think of a witty signature.

RE: Are you out or in the closet?
I'm out and proud of it. As are most the people I know. Maybe its a UK think, most churches are almost empty, lots are closing and being converted to other use. The biggest activity on Sunday's seem to be shopping. So God is dead, long live freedom from religion.

In my opinion your sexuality is your business and if your comfortable sharing it with people then do, if your not then don't. No one should be able to dictate or influence how you live your life in anyway that your not cool with

The thread is about coming out as atheist.

I will tell people if asked, or if it comes up organically in conversation.

Religion isn't a huge thing here, so I am not afraid to share.

RE: Are you out or in the closet?
I've been honest about it. But most of the people I know don't talk about religion much so it doesn't come up.

That police car looks shopped.

EDIT: It looked a little to clean and flat, but after fining more images of what appears to be an identical car from different perspectives and in different lighting, I'm inclined to think it's real (or else a very prolific spoof).

RE: Are you out or in the closet?
I could mark any of those depending on what day it is. I don't hide my atheism but it's one of those topics my family avoids for the most part. I cannot really be out at work though. A few of my closer coworkers at my last job knew but it took several years to get there. The funeral business is extremely religious and conservative. It would likely cost me any job prospects to be up front about this - and I have been asked in interviews, multiple times.

Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who has said it- not even if I have said it- unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense. - Buddha
