Watching "Hoarders", I noticed that the women's son had a particular demeanor. Unlike his (unsympathetic) mother, he was very polite, well spoken & and had an understanding of his mother's mental illness. You could also tell that he had accepted, what had become of her. For some odd reason, the thought popped into my head, "I wonder how many times you see an atheist on tv or on the streets and you don't even know it!" A few minutes later, I spotted something on the man's shirt. Could it be?
The Scarlette 'A'!! We are out there! And that also explains the way he carried himself on the show! Bravo, Jason! Is this some sort of sign from the atheist god or something? ;)
I blogged this on tumblr a few days ago but I started to think more about this subject. My mind recognized an atheist before my conscience could process it. I think this is only because I interact (knowingly) with atheists on a day to day basis. However, Christians and other theists in America do not. This is why I think it is great what the FFRF, Richard Dawkins Foundation, and others are doing with the "Out-Campaign." It's giving the theists a chance to see who we are and see that we're not angry, immoral people. We're 'normal' people. One day, a Christian will see a well spoken, science literate, polite young man on tv and maybe they'll say, "Look honey! There's another one of them atheists on the tv!"
