I have been curious for a while about other Canadian atheists experience with simply being an atheist in Canada.
I have commented to others that where I live now and where I grew up it was remarkably easy to be an atheist in many ways.
I had several friends growing up who where theists and still are to this day probably, but my lack of religion was never an issue with them. Even today it isn't an issue within my current circle. Though I am among my friends the only out and admitted atheist and I have always been surprised by that. I have been curious for a while if my experiences in some ways were typical Canadian or if I escaped religion because of my upbringing.
So what say you?
Where you raised in a religious or non-religious house hold?
Was religion predominant in the community you grew up in?
Did it cause any issues growing up, if you were raised non-religious among your religious friends?
Have you ever been called out by someone about your stance on religion and belief?
Do you find it difficult to be an out atheist in Canada?
If you are not an out atheist, how come?
