RE: A Jew from Israel + Telling someone you're an atheist
Hi, barack, welcome.
My only suggestion to you is stay true to yourself. very few things in life can give you the satisfaction standing up for your beliefs can. and if your parents decide they "hate you" because you've chosen the path of free-thinking rationalism, then maybe they dont deserve the emotional stress youve apparently undergone in your 'coming out' procession. as far as the united states, yes, youre right. we're a nation thats biased toward atheism, but we're also a nation in a state of religious turmoil. everyone's at each other's throat but it's nowhere near as extreme as other parts of the world. good luck in whatever you decide to do.
