UK's Labour Leader Comes Out as an Atheist

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.
