Last time, I ran this contest:
This weekend is the Atheist Coming Out Party in Columbus, OH.
This raises the question:
What is the worst way to come out as an atheist?
It can be a statement, a dialogue/scene, a sign, etc. The question is open to interpretation!
Here are the Top 5 ways (with submitters):
In poster form:
Worst coming out speech:
“I accept your nomination for President of the United States and look forward to becoming the first atheist to serve in the White House.”
I wouldn’t recommend coming out to ones mom like I did mine, although I doubt it is the worst way it could be done. My mom was going on about religion and wouldn’t let it go and I said “Good grief, Mom, I stopped believing in god not long after I stopped believing in Santa Clause!”. She stopped talking at that moment.
So there I was, hanging out with Pat Robertson, Rick Perry, and Fred Phelps on a hunting trip deep in backwoods Alabama, to which I said “Boy, who would imagine an atheist would get the chance to hang out with all of you!”
Trip and fall onto a table, crushing a plate of communion wafers, the other end of the table flips up and a bible flies into the fireplace and is consumed by flames and also the table hits a woman holding a baby and it soars straight into an open microwave oven. Throw up your arms and exclaim “It’s ok! I’m an atheist!”
Congratulations to the winners! The top three will be receiving specially-made Friendly Atheist wristbands (in the color of their choice), sent to me by blog reader Shauna and her sister Danni!
If you’d like to win your own wristband, here is the new contest:
Atheists were not invited to the Democratic National Convention’s Interfaith Gathering.
What other events are atheists not being invited to? Why not?
Funny and creative answers will have a shot at winning.
