A Coming Out Story

Here is an article on Julia Sweeney coming out as an atheist. Her story in Letting Go of God is very amusing and very well told (also available on iTunes).

The article is especially interesting in pointing out the similarities between ‘coming out’ as gay and ‘coming out’ as atheist. I can’t say that I personally have experience with either, but the similarities seem clear. Any time one wants to tell friends and family that his/her lifestyle is different than the accepted norm there is bound to be some confusion and pain.
