BlackSheepJip
My name is Justin and I guess I've been an Atheist for a while although I finally said it aloud about 4 months ago. I told my family (the parents and they spread the word to my siblings) recently and things are still a little weird. It was a difficult thing to do but I felt honesty was best. My family is Catholic to the bone. I'm a much happier person now though. I feel like I am who I was born to be. I am no longer bound to any one school of thought. And for that, cheers!

Welcom!

I hope you find more answers her than you did in the church!

Silly question! What took you over the top to come out?

Hey Justin. Your already letting people know....that's a tough first step. Good for you!

Welcome aboard. Thumbsup

Listening to my parents being condescending (I used to be the same way until I started to think outside the box). To be honest it is quite stressful keeping quiet over long periods of time. It got to the point where I needed to just let them know. And I'm glad I did. Tonight was a whole other story though...

Hi,

If you don't mind me asking what happened next? If its still a bit of am open wound, it's fine if you say nothing! But you will find plenty who will listen and if possible give you some ways to deal with it!!

P.S. My name it Keith!
