    People are judged by what they profess or believe, rather than what they do or who they are.

    The only way to change that is to come out. I come to know some of my friends who are non-believers but only after a long time. I don’t come out myself in many cases. It is difficult, and you don’t want to come out for no reason. But if your office is holding hands for a prayer or collecting for church, it is important to say “no thanks.”
