Why does ‘Mad Men’ actor Lena Dunham think it’s OK to call herself an atheist?

A recent interview with Lena Dunham on “The View” about her faith is raising some interesting questions about how people who identify as atheist should talk about their faith.
On Monday, the “Girls” star told co-host Ariana Grande that she thinks people who believe in a god, including atheists, should talk to their faith “in a different way.”
“It’s a very inclusive religion,” Dunham said.
“I think you can’t just come out and say, ‘I’m an atheist.’
I think it has to be a different conversation.
I don’t think you should just come up and say you’re an atheist.
That’s not going to help anyone.”
Dunham said that if she were an atheist, “I would not want to be seen as the atheist who just goes, ‘Well, I’m an Atheist, and I’m going to say I’m not religious.'”
When she spoke to a different religion, she said, “It’s like saying, ‘Hey, I’ve never met my girlfriend.
But I love her, and we’re going to do a dance together, and she’ll dance with me.'”
Dunham was talking about her recent interview on “This American Life” where she said that her religious beliefs, and the way she identifies, have “changed.”
Dunhy, who has a children’s book coming out next month, said that “the thing about religion is that it’s so complicated,” and that her belief that there is no god is the most fundamental thing about it.
Dunham, who previously spoke about her Christian faith, is also an advocate for a secular society.
She has said that there are many people in her church who believe differently from her, but that those beliefs are “not so important.”
“If I say to my friends, ‘You know what, you’re wrong, you have to live your life the way you want to live it,’ it’s like, ‘Are you kidding me?'”
Dunham said of her beliefs.
“I am a believer, but I’m also an atheist,” she continued.
“And that is a way of saying, you know what?
You don’t have to believe that there’s a god to get on this planet.
And it’s a different story.”
Dunyan’s interview with Grande, who is Jewish, came in a recent episode of “This Is Us.”
Grande asked Dunham about her beliefs and her experience with being bullied at school.
Dunyan said she is a victim of bullying at school because she is “an out-and-out atheist.”
“And it’s very difficult for a Jewish kid to find his way to a world where I’m just like, You’re a big, bad, racist, homophobic, sexist, you-know-what kind of kid,” Dunham explained.
“So it’s really hard for me.”
