I simply try to be a better person, not than the next person, but than the person I was the day before. I haven't had to deal so much with bigots who dislike me for being progressive so much as I feel that, as an Atheist, there's a greater expectation of morality. Christians have teachings from the Bible, but Atheists have only Humanism, and somehow that isn't as tangible, so I try to set the example.

I'm not always successful, but I try. I live in the South, so I'm in a hotbed for bigotry. I've just been rather fortunate.
