- None of my family are atheists (except my dad and he's in the closet too [at 66 years old no less])
- We can't talk about it in polite company because it would upset the apple cart in the rest of our family relationships so much we risk ostricism.
- You are assumed to be immoral without belief in god.
- Everyone assumes you believe in god and can't conceive of you being otherwise.
hmmm. Looks similar.
Today I read an interesting post about being Conservative in NY. I'm glad I'm surrounded by a mixed and mostly conservative neighborhood as this would drive me crazy, but it appears that there is also political closeting.
In that situation would I be a double closetter? Or would I be surrounded by atheists [libs] and therefore back to a single closet?
Which would I prefer? Well I don't give a crap about god so I guess it's better to be in that closet rather than the political closet...hmmm.
