They liken their strategy to that of the gay-rights movement, which lifted off when closeted members of a scorned minority decided to go public.
“It’s not about carrying banners or protesting,” said Herb Silverman, a math professor at the College of Charleston who founded the Secular Humanists of the Lowcountry, which has about 150 members on the coast of the Carolinas. “The most important thing is coming out of the closet.”

Couldn’t have said it better myself. 
It’s hard to condemn atheism/homsexuality when you realize that your brother or neighbor or work partner is an atheist/gay.
