Labour Party chief Ed Miliband has announced his atheism in an interview on Radio 5 Live. He joins Nick Clegg, the Deputy Prime Minister, as an open atheist. I wish we had a few more atheist politicians on this side of the pond. The only one I know of in Congress is Pete Stark of California. But, with the fundies exerting so much influence in American politics, I don't think we'll see any more soon. Which is too bad.
Fellow atheists, we need to learn a lesson from the gays. The first step towards earning respect is to come out of the closet.
