Come OUT

Atheists have always been at the forefront of rational thinking and beacons of enlightenment, and now you can share your idealism by being part of the OUT Campaign.

Atheists are far more numerous than most people realize. COME OUT of the closet! You'll feel liberated, and your example will encourage others to COME OUT too. (Don't "out" anybody else, wait for them to OUT themselves when they are ready to do so).

The OUT Campaign allows individuals to let others know they are not alone. It can also be a nice way of opening a conversation and help to demolish the negative stereotypes of atheists. Let the world know that we are not about to go away and that we are not going to allow those that would condemn us to push us into the shadows.

As more and more people join the OUT Campaign, fewer and fewer people will feel intimidated by religion. We can help others understand that atheists come in all shapes, sizes, colours and personalities. We are labourers and professionals. We are mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, sisters, brothers and grandparents. We are human (we are primates) and we are good friends and good citizens. We are good people who have no need to cling to the supernatural.

It is time to let our voices be heard regarding the intrusion of religion in our schools and politics. Atheists along with millions of others are tired of being bullied by those who would force their own religious agenda down the throats of our children and our respective governments. We need to KEEP OUT the supernatural from our moral principles and public policies.

It is time to step up and...

We have many exciting activities and plans for the OUT Campaign, so be sure to watch OutCampaign.org for the latest developments!

Hello!

I am gradually coming out with my Atheism. I have told only a few people. I told a friend that I knew was an Atheist, I haven't heard back from her. I told my sister the other day she has not gotten back to me yet. My brother has disowned me way back in 2009 so no need to tell him. As far as my family (brother's family and my sister's family) I don't exist anymore. So I am sure they have completely written me off by now. I really don't care. I am happy with my choice of becoming an Atheist. I feel free from all the lies and the stress. I sit back and think about my past and at one time I was a very strong Christian too. Went to church, taught preschool church, bible studies (which were nothing but gossiping ladies), conferences (Women Of Faith), bought tons of books, bibles, music CD's, videos, family first movies, etc... I tried for years to get my X husband to come to church with me he wouldn't (only because he was brought up in a strict church and hated any kind of church). I tried to get my kids involved (my daughter did try) I took grand kids to church with me (then their parents said no more). My middle son actually has a deep fear of churches or any thing like a church even funeral homes. My oldest son has never attended church and to this day he still doesn't. My daughter on the other hand has tried over the years to get involved. I have to make a decision real soon and tell her that I am an Atheist now. She has a boyfriend that has gone through some kind of counseling and he thinks if he goes to church now everything will be alright. So my daughter and her kids and him went to church once or twice now and enjoyed it. It is going to be hard to tell them but I am hoping she won't feel she has to go now because she still thinks mom is still a Christian and this would make me happy.

I also feel that to really understand what Atheism is you need to be a Christian first so you have a good reason to become an atheist. Do you understand what I am saying? It's like if you were born to parents that were not believers and you grew up that way too you really don't know what you are being an Atheist for. I know what a Christian believes in and how they get brainwashed into believing all kinds of lies. So I have a good reason to be Atheist now. It's very complicated. But on the other hand if your parents did research on the subject of religion and then based their decision to become Atheists then passed that down to their children that I can see. :) the more I read which I am writing the more dumb it sounds. I better quit now. lol.

 

I am so glad my husband that I have now is an Atheist too.

I am so glad there are groups out there like this that I can belong to too. :-)

Responding to Rock. When I lived in South some people would list their services in the paper with "a Christian housekeeper", or "Christian plumber" or whatever. I NEVER called them needless to say. Now if I knew they were an atheist they'd get my business in a heartbeat!!

Just ordered my t-shirts. ;-)

 

I've been out for about 10 years but not fully out and overt but for the last two months. Even those who know me, know my views and even agree are somewhat confounded and disconcerted at my open advocacy.

Yep, "Angry" atheist. Good choice! ;)

Ooh! I'm not sure.... I guess I'm an Atheist who is passionate about what I believe (as I have spent ages coming to terms with/ examining it!) I guess it depends on whether people respect my views or not and those of other people whatever they may be- It annoys me when folk just spout an opinion that totally isn't thought through! Grrr! :)

Welcome to not believing in a god or gods. ;)

 

Now you must decide from here; are you going to be an "angry" atheist or a non-confrontational, tolerant, and "coexisty" atheist?

Comment by Providence on February 23, 2011 at 11:48am
Hey folks...I'm an Atheist!...it feels so good to say those words! Im recently 'out' as it were and it still feels sort of weird saying it..but AWESOME!! :)

On facebook back in march there was an event called "A" week where all participants changed their profile pics to the scarlet letter in order to draw awareness to atheism in the facebook community. What I would like to know is will we be having an event where we all wear some kind of atheist apparel on the same day to draw awareness to atheism in our real lives?
