Why Coming Out of the Closet as an American Atheist Is Worth It

Reasons Why Coming Out As An Atheist Is Worth It


I always like to start an article with a statement of the obvious, to help the reader and writer begin on common ground. For this article, the statement is:


We live in a very religious nation.


It wasn’t hard to come up with that, because in the United States churches outnumber schools and libraries by several orders of magnitude.


Yet Atheism is growing, which means there’s not only a decent chance that you, my lovely reader, are a non-believer yourself, but there’s also a good chance you’re relatively new to your non-belief.


You may even still attend church, while not buying into a word of the preaching. If you are a believer, there are decent odds that you are questioning and wondering what life is like on the other side. (The “other side” being Atheism in this life, no heaven or hell in the next.)


Let me help fill you in. As an “out” Atheist, I’m perhaps a little biased, but I think being out is pretty damn grand.


But even I can admit that it is good and bad to live out of the closet as a non-believer. Since I’m a cynic, we’ll begin with the bad.


For two and a half years, I worked for an organization called the Secular Student Alliance. Have you heard of the national organization Campus Crusade for Christ? These days, they’re calling themselves just “Cru.”


Atheists


I used to work for SSA as their high school organizer. All in all, it was a pretty sweet gig. As soon as I started that job, I immediately noticed a big difference between religious students and non-religious students: most of the non-religious students hadn’t told their parents about their disbelief.
