Atheists ‘Coming Out’ In Droves
Reason RallyA recent Gallup poll concluded that the US remains a deeply religious nation, with more than two-thirds of the nation's residents classified as very or moderately religious. An estimated 20-thousand people rallied in DC this past weekend – many of them said to “come out.” The “Reason Rally” was envisioned as an opportunity for people to celebrate their rejection of the idea of God and to claim a bigger place in public life. Whether you call them atheists, secularists or humanists, those Americans who don’t believe in God have long had something of an image problem. From the pledge of allegiance to having “in God we trust” printed on our money, religion – and more specifically the “G” word – crops up a lot in American life. Constant references to God irk some non-believers and it pushes others deeper the closet.
