1. (Literally) a solitary vocal atheist in a community made up of devoted and religious believers.

2. (More generally) a person who is aggressive and unwavering in their opinions, in the face of any possible opposition.

Somewhat perjorative. See also, village idiot.
"Jane is so vocal in her opposition to the proposal even though no-one else agrees with her - she's such a village atheist."
