Come OUT

Atheists have always been at the forefront of rational thinking and beacons of enlightenment, and now you can share your idealism by being part of the OUT Campaign.

Atheists are far more numerous than most people realize. COME OUT of the closet! You'll feel liberated, and your example will encourage others to COME OUT too. (Don't "out" anybody else, wait for them to OUT themselves when they are ready to do so).

The OUT Campaign allows individuals to let others know they are not alone. It can also be a nice way of opening a conversation and help to demolish the negative stereotypes of atheists. Let the world know that we are not about to go away and that we are not going to allow those that would condemn us to push us into the shadows.

As more and more people join the OUT Campaign, fewer and fewer people will feel intimidated by religion. We can help others understand that atheists come in all shapes, sizes, colours and personalities. We are labourers and professionals. We are mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, sisters, brothers and grandparents. We are human (we are primates) and we are good friends and good citizens. We are good people who have no need to cling to the supernatural.

It is time to let our voices be heard regarding the intrusion of religion in our schools and politics. Atheists along with millions of others are tired of being bullied by those who would force their own religious agenda down the throats of our children and our respective governments. We need to KEEP OUT the supernatural from our moral principles and public policies.

It is time to step up and...

We have many exciting activities and plans for the OUT Campaign, so be sure to watch for the latest developments!

I wasn't sure if I was with him on this issue until the en of the article. Guess I'm a Gnu Atheist. ;)

just ordered a Dawkins shirt and some scarlet A stickers to let my Interests be a bit more Obvious. Hoping it provokes some good conversation and not a flat tire.

You should post this stuff below in the discussion forum. We can keep all the thoughts together there. (a little OCD showing, sorry ;P)

Regarding traditions, nothing wrong per se to going along with existing traditions, but why are we bound to them? I'll sing the star bangled banner a million times, but I don't want to subject myself and my family to anything that reeks of going along with something that reeks of old superstitions. I resent the time I've wasted waiting for dinner to be served while people thank their god, whilst the cook stands there, NOT being appreciated.

I love these kinds of discussions. We don't have to tippy-toe around pretend offensive issues. No fake deity to insult. Seems the body of christ managed just fine, eh? Cookie. That is a knee slapper. Better than a knee bender.

thank you. I'll check it out.

And, lets make our own traditions. Why not?

I guess I need an atheist group thats Out and "lets make our own tradititions". Ha! Considering I am in West Va., a state that spun of from Virginia because we wouldn't secede from the union during the civil war, you'd think things would be easier.

I live in Harpers Ferry itself, John Brown is my idol in some ways, and he was a radical. I drive past that courthouse 3 or 4 times a week.

I guess I am more of a radical. There are so many real things. True things. Why don't we celebrate them. The wonder of my puppy's love, or the mystery of the kid learning subtraction? Believe me, I practice what I try to preach, because I won't sit through the family passover, my brother won't invite me and mine to the dinner that follows.

Not into the xmas stuff. I'm an ex-jew. Never did christmas. That would feel really alien. Anyway, pagans had gods, why would I want to trade not having one god for not having many not-gods.
