gay is great

I just picked up Richard Dawkin’s book The God Delusion which starts with an interesting jolt. He believes that if more atheists “come out” as atheists, then this could lead to a movement that is as successful as the gay movement.

Its no coincidence that many gay people I know are closeted atheists, having been unceremoniously dumped out of a religion. When I ask a gay person what their beliefs are, I typically get a timid “agnostic” as a reply, but I suspect this would be a sturdy “atheist” if they started reading up on the matter.

I’m just wondering how many gays are ready to come out as atheists….hint hint contact me ;)
