← Coming Out Is Fun

sbrogdon's Avatar Jump to comment 7 by sbrogdon

I live in North Florida and am originally from South Georgia. Here, being an Atheist is akin to being a child molester or murderer. My coming out was scary as hell and not really fun at all. I lost several "friends" who I had 20+ years relationships with. I still catch myself having to be careful about what I say about religion in certain company.

It is much easier now the older I get. But it is still a struggle to live day to day as an Atheist in the heart of the bible belt.
