Coming out atheist: young nonbelievers

26 08 09 - 09:08 I recently ran across an interesting article by Kate Shellnutt on the news21.com website. It's titled "Coming out atheist: young nonbelievers build community in college and online". It discusses how things are changing for young adults that are attending college.
Some quotes from the article:
"One in four adults under 30 are atheists, agnostics or unaffiliated, according to the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life (see chart), but the number of young people who outwardly identify as nonbelievers is much, much smaller, for fear that it could threaten their careers, social lives or familial relationships. Now, with the help of the Internet and the Obama administration, 2009 may start a more open age for America’s nonreligious population."


"As more college campuses provide opportunities for students to get involved in groups of nonbelievers, it’s becoming easier for younger people to identify as atheists."
