Elderly Members Of Atheist Group Face Jeers, Fears From Peers

I have been a partially "out-of-the-closet" atheist for 25 years this New Year's. I say "partially" because, while I am "out" to my family, and on Facebook, I am NOT to co-workers, and people who I associate with that I think do NOT have the intelligence, intellectual maturity, or tolerance to be "out" around. I kind of understand the reason to be in a group with an "Anonymous" label, but the fact that the term "Anonymous" is in a group's name can make people think its a CULTIST 12-Step group! THAT is something NO atheist group needs. I understand that atheists need to be VERY careful about who they are "out" to. But as the gay activists are finding out, the more "out" you are about something, the LESS "intolerant" society can show itself to be, I wish we atheists could operate on the same level of "outness" as the homosexuals can-and be elected to public office as they are, as well!
