Anyway, he always says he'll come out to his friends, when I come out to mine!! I think the analogy is somewhat fitting.

I agree that this analogy is pretty fitting. I don't talk about my faith, or lack thereof, with people, especially since living in the South. In Ohio I could say I don't go to church and no one would think anything of it, but here, most people I know go to church 2 or 3 times a week and the majority of their social circle is church-based. So when you say you don't go to church they look at you a little cross-eyed. And I know my friends would see me differently of I talked about my beliefs.
