Name: Rocky Oliver
Born: 1964
Location: Flowery Branch, GA
Labels: I’m an Unitarian Universalist, a Humanist, and an Out-of-the-Closet Atheist (and proud of it!)
Organization Affiliation: I’m a member of the National Atheist Party.
Former Religion: Southern Baptist (the crazy-strict flavor)


I’m a father of five, husband of 27+ years, computer geek, animal lover, community activist, Humanist, Unitarian Universalist…. and an out-of-the-closet Atheist. I don’t fit many of the typical atheist stereotypes – I’ve got a loving, long-term, and successful marriage, I have many kids, and I am a happy person. I live in the Bible Belt, but I wear my atheism with pride. I’m non-confrontational – but I don’t run away from a discussion, either. I answer questions fully and respectfully with the hopes of a) disarming their defenses, and b) planting a “Seed of Rationalism” in them that, maybe, will grow into a freethinker one day (yeah, I’m an optimist too 😉 ). I would say to those who are struggling with coming out – be sure of yourself and be proud – you have NOTHING to be ashamed of or embarrassed about.
