Yes, since being one does not exclude the other.
If you really beleive that, there's no point arguing with you.
You don't think gay atheists believe in truth, justice, and the American way (not that they necessarily do, of course, but it hardly precludes it)?
I think changing those things changes the character from a solidly "middle American" person to a member of a fringe element of society and that the writing of said character would have to reflect that. Otherwise why bother?

Take the old Ellen Degeneres show. Once she "came out" (actor and character) the show went from being a mildly amusing character comedy to being a lesbian polemic every week.

David Gerrald's "Blood and Fire" script has the same problem, as produced by Phase II. Not only does he insert gay characters, but he writes extended scenes around them to push it right up in the viewers' face: "LOOK!!! GAY CHARACTERS!!!"
