    If you do not consider it a foundational belief, then keeping it to yoursself should not be too big an imposition.

    Same can be said for homosexuality.

    In fact, believing that atheism is something that should be kept to oneself sends the message that atheism is something which one should be ashamed of or embarrassed about. That, in turn, feeds into the distrust and hatred of atheists which we are talking about.

    "If you do the right thing for the wrong reasons, the work becomes corrupted, impure, and ultimately self-destructive."
