Becoming more vocal about my atheism has had an affect on many of my relationships.
What I'm beginning to see is how the devoutly religious people categorize the non believers. The box they seem to try to put us in is "evil" or that we are now the "devil."
This is such an ignorant approach but it requires "us" to be even more patient with the religious. To me, patience, love, and understanding is the only way we can begin to show them how we can live good and loving lives without religion.
A person doesn't need to believe in a god or gods to have love in their lives.
Have you gained or lost friends and/or relationships because of your atheism?
I would say, in raw numbers of relationships, that I've lost more than I've gained. But the quality of my relationships has improved.
What about you?
