Barney Frank "Comes Out" As An 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… Incidentally, the Secular Coalition for America gave him a “C” grade in their 2011 report card. The grade was lower than expected because Frank supported reaffirming “In God We Trust” as our national motto, voted to give land to the Boy Scouts of America, and supported a measure that allowed “certain church plans to be exempt from registration and disclosure requirements.” In any case, former Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA) still remains the only openly atheist member of Congress in our history."
