I'm tired of hiding in shame because I'm an atheist. I know people think we are bad, rude, untrustworthy, dishonest, and everything else. Truth is we are not. Within every religion there are bad people that make everyone else look bad. Please don't pass judgment. People who know me assume I'm a Christian because I'm well mannered, honest, polite, and a good person. Then they turn on me when they find out about my personal beliefs. I don't judge others by their beliefs, so why judge me? I'm tired of losing people because of my personal beliefs.
