Dave P's Blog (6)

We ain't half got it easy in Britain.

While perusing this 'ere site I've seen many posts and blogs discussing 'coming out' as an atheist. Initially I was a tad miffed by this. I knew that the situation in other parts of the world was much worse than it is here but I don't think I realised quite how ghastly it actually is.



I saw references to coming out as atheist and thought, 'You what? Coming out as gay was a big step, and came after much stalling, self-doubt and soul searching. It was a very big, and hard, step to… Continue
