Barney Frank Comes Out As Atheist
Barney Frank outed himself as a "pot-smoking atheist" on Bill Maher's show Friday night. Hemant Mehta writes at Friendly Atheist:
"It’s one of those things you wish he could’ve said more openly during the 32 years he sat in Congress. Somehow, it was okay to be a gay liberal, but saying he was an atheist would’ve been taking things too far. In any case, former Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA) still remains the only openly atheist member of Congress in our history."
