We are everywhere!

Christina here…

I’m a home health occupational therapist and a biomechanics researcher. I visit the office of the home health agency a few times a week to turn in paperwork and participate in case conference and such.

The other day, while completing some paperwork, I accidentally kicked over a stack of folders and papers.

As I picked up the stack, a co-worker in the office explained that the company hired someone to work on paperwork, and said something about “issues” with the employee.

I said, “what do you mean, issues?”

My co-worker explained that the employee was very religious, talking about Christianity and Jesus all the time.  The employee had even prayed over my co-worker because she had said, “god damn it” under her breath and the religious employee overheard her. Then my co-worker said some magical words:

“I’m an atheist, so…”

I didn’t know she was an atheist. Awesome! Of course, we immediately exchanged resources, and I gave her a link to this blog.

We are everywhere.

If you’re an atheist and you feel alone: we are right beside you.

If you’re a Christian and you think you don’t know any atheists in real life: you do, you just don’t know it. We are your friends, your mothers, your fathers, children, your co-workers, your neighbors. We sit next to you in church. We are even your clergy.

We are not eroding the fabric of society. We are inexorably woven in.
