Wendy Thomas Russell came out as an atheist flu years ago and has found it to be a positive experience. “I can candidly say that, for me personally, being “out” has been one of the most surprisingly gratifying choices I’ve ever made.” Here are her four main reasons:
1. It turns out I really enjoy shattering people’s assumptions.
2. I like religious people more now.
3. I’m setting a great example for my child.
4. I’m opening the door for others.
