"Incredibly, coming out as a lesbian was EASIER than coming out as an atheist. Isn't that crazy? Being both sometimes makes me wonder if my origins are on another planet. I might not make it to Columbia often but I value that you are there. -…"

Book - The Religious Case Against Belief, James P. Carse
