(RNS) After coming out as an atheist to his Christian peers, Eric Fromm says he is relieved he doesn't have to "hide anymore."


  1. This is a good story. Fromm has a right to any religious view he chooses and it shouldn’t matter one way or the other to anyone else. I look forward to the day when this kind of “news” isn’t worth reporting.

  2. I don’t see how this is “news” in the first place, other than in the mileau that finds anything related to “religion” as something of an oddity. That mileau is “owned” by the media, for the most part.
    Fromm, as a communications major, is likely headed for the PR scene or the staff of some “news” outlet.

  3. This is 100% news in that now an atheist can attend a staunchly religious Christian institution in peace. If the university is willing to accept Fromm’s atheist views, then so should the rest of American Christians.
