Started this discussion. Last reply by Jewelz Dec 5, 2011. 19 Replies

I have been reading a lot of atheist's comments about how they feel that they must hide their atheism from their religious families. Although my family is very Catholic, I never felt ashamed of my…Continue

"I'm sorry that ur family and friends are telling u that u r being punished, that is truly awful! The worst thing to do and sit back and believe that God will have his way with u. U are the only one that can determine ur fate, and as long and u…"

"But didn't we at least choose to accept the logic and reason? Unfortunately, religious indoctrination sometimes builds a shield around faith which is impenetrable by most logic and reason. This is why even many highly educated, intelligent…"

"But is openly admitting who we are a choice, even if who we are is not a choice? Sure. We could choose to remain silent and hide who we are. In fact, for many people in the world, admitting atheism would probably be suicide. I am reminded how…"

"I don't know if location has much to do with it.  I'm from the Seattle area, which is pretty much the most liberal and un-churched part of the country.  I think it doesn't matter if the greater community at large accepts…"

Logan Jancek replied to Stephanie Cabrera's discussion 'What does it mean to "come out as an Atheist?"'
"I think the way an atheist would be proud is for other people to accept them besides the fact that they are atheist. The fact is, most people in the U.S. do not accept atheists (learned that the hard way!). They argue. They're violent towards…"

"For a long time, I have equated coming out as an atheist with coming out as gay. In fact, I was just talking about it with another atheist last evening. Thankfully, these days both being gay and being atheist are much more accepted than they used to…"

"I'm still in college so normal "adult world" having a job and such is not anything i'm familiar with. I am fortunate enough that all of my friends for the most part, are other college students who tend to be open minded. And even…"

Stutz replied to Stephanie Cabrera's discussion 'What does it mean to "come out as an Atheist?"'
"I think it's harder to be open about your lack of belief when you're an adult. I grew up in an accepting part of the country (Pacific NW) but the "A" word is still not something I like to toss about. It unfortunately still…"

"Thanks for the reply! You are right, I never even realized how much hate atheists must endure until I joined these online communities. Living in south Florida, I was fortunate enough to never have been exposed to it! I also agree that I have met…"

Stephanie Cabrera replied to Stephanie Cabrera's discussion 'What does it mean to "come out as an Atheist?"'
"Because of my location, I never felt oppressed, different, or shamed in the way that unfortunately so many others do. And yes, I guess I meant that I wish we could all be open about our atheism so others can be more accepting. I feel that there are…"

Stephanie Cabrera replied to Stephanie Cabrera's discussion 'What does it mean to "come out as an Atheist?"'
"Thanks for the replies everyone! I think the reason I saw this as a choice is because we are all (mostly all) fed religious crap from the day we are born. After some logic and reason we realize that we no longer believe, even if we wanted to. And I…"

Richard Porter replied to Stephanie Cabrera's discussion 'What does it mean to "come out as an Atheist?"'
"I think I'd have to agree with most of the posts below, I wouldn't say that being an atheist is a choice, once you have reached the conclusion in your mind that there is no god then you are an atheist (at least that's how I see it). I…"

Jewelz replied to Stephanie Cabrera's discussion 'What does it mean to "come out as an Atheist?"'
"I think you're confusing atheism (lack of belief in a god or gods) with the choice to openly reject religion or voice your lack of belief. Like sexual preference or losing belief in Santa, losing your belief in God isn't really a choice.…"

Marc Hammond replied to Stephanie Cabrera's discussion 'What does it mean to "come out as an Atheist?"'
"Hi Stephanie. I must say that while I agree with you that a gay person is born gay, I also think we are born atheists. I wasn't born with a belief in a god or gods.  I was told by other humans that I was to believe it or else I'd be…"

Loni Ponce replied to Stephanie Cabrera's discussion 'What does it mean to "come out as an Atheist?"'
"Atheism is not a choice. Once you start to realize that all of your beliefs are wrong, you cannot undo that. There's no going back, even if you wanted to (and I did). Once you start doing your research and getting the real facts and not…"
