I just took the survey. Honestly, I think you may be overreacting or misinterperting it a little. I also read your other blog post, Brother Richard's Response, and its comments. That is why I decided to take the survey after all. I can see the correlation of forms of "stigma". Just like in the movie, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner. It was a "coming out" story for an inter-racial relationship.

I think the metaphor of coming out of the closet is very adaptable for all kinds of situations in which a person or persons feel that they are in the minority, and must for whatever reason, keep some aspect of their lives a secret. So there is a corresponding relation to coming out as queer and coming out as atheist.

While some people try to draw correlations between queer issues and black issues, I have found most black people resent that for some reason (which I think I understand but don't want to get into). However, the most notable difference is that gays can hide it, blacks can't.

yes that is the one dallas
i live in Canada (Quebec) and weather your gay or strait is not any ones business , i
just found it weird that the survey would ask that QUESTION , A LOT OF TIMES people are persecuted wen they answer does kinds of question , and i think in a free thinkers web site even in a survey some ones sexuality does not mater , nor should we be quiz on it, now maybe im making some out of nothing but i still think its a weird question , the answer i got was he was comparing and using the out of the closet as in gay out of and atheist out of , i dont know maybe it is just me , take the survey and give me your opinion please
