Just got elected at work to the occupational health and safety committee. Ok so it's not a government position but in a company with 60 odd workers I think it's good to know that my atheism didn't inhibit my chances when I went for the position.
On a somewhat more bizarre note I also brought up the issue of mandatory vaccination at work and how I was in favor of it. One response I got was that it was atheists who typically oppose such things. Go figure.
