To me, the Christian persecution complex is one of the great marvels of American society. It truly is amazing. I’ve talked about it before, most notably here, where I gave four examples of how Christians in America are oh, so persecuted.

This week, a dream of mine that I have had for years is finally coming true. After coming out as atheist myself, I’m finally sharing these ways that you can proclaim your open, proud, out-of-the-closet atheism to the world.

My official merch shop is here, but I want to break down each design I made and why. I’m incredibly proud of them, and I finally get to show you!Continue reading “6 Ways to Show Your Atheist Pride”
This week, I finally did something I have been wanting to do for a long time: I put “atheist” on my Facebook profile. It was less of a dramatic coming-out than I had anticipated; to see it, you would have to go to my profile and scroll through my “About” section and find it listed under “religious views”. I could have made it into a post that will show up in people’s News Feeds, but I didn’t find that necessary. I did, however, follow a number of atheist pages, and maybe one day I’ll share some of their posts for all my friends to see.
I would like to preface this post with some apologies.
I’m sorry to all my friends and classmates, for persecuting you by being openly atheist at school.
I’m sorry to my pastor, for persecuting you by giggling at your bible studies with my fiance instead of agreeing with you.
I’m sorry to my friend from high school, for persecuting you by supporting gay rights.
And I’m sorry to my mom and family for persecuting you by having premarital sex and not believing the religion you raised me with. Continue reading “4 Ways that Christians are Persecuted”
