The Friendly Atheist highlights this sort of strange challenge at Challenge to Christians: Wear an Atheist T-Shirt and Gauge Reactions
The person behind this idea goes on to say :" If a person comments (friends, family, church members, strangers) you’re not allowed to divulge which religion you actually are, or explain yourself in any way. You must only listen to what they say and respond with “I’d rather not talk about it!” "
I think if friends, family or my fellow church people saw me wearing as a practicing Catholic wearing an Atheist T-shirt they would no doubt ask me why I was wearing an atheist T-Shirt and would engage me for obvious good reasons. Not seeing any "persecution" in that . Besides that when you become an walking billboard for something the purpose often to promote a viewpoint. They want feedback !!
The Friendly Atheist says there are bonus points if you do this in the South. The comments are sort of amusing as to all the imagined responses to that. I suspect most people would not comment at all.
