I am an Atheist
Okay, so today I am taking part in "I am an Atheist", set forth by the OUTcampaign.org
Here is their description of the day, from their Facebook event page:
We rally for freedom of thought, the right to believe and not to.
We rally to erase the social stigma around nonbelief.
We rally in solidarity with those who live where freedom and equality for nonbelievers is only a dream.
We rally to tell the world: we are nonreligious, we are equal, respect us.
This is not a hate rally: we are against false beliefs, not those who believe in them. Intolerance will not be tolerated.
So, there you go. I am an Atheist. Yet, like you and everyone else, I am more. I am a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a friend, a neighbor, an American.
Look around the Internet and see if anyone else you know has a 'Scarlet A' today.
