Howdy
I'm James. I have dragged myself from the shadow of religion over my life. Though kind of raised Catholic, I really didn't feel much attachment to that creed. My mother had ideas about some hybrid native american/christian woo. But I never really bought into that either. For years I was a deist, then slowly came to wake up to my agnosticism. After that I encountered an a(nti)-theist. After long talks and discussions I came to the realization that I too was an atheist.
No the trouble is, due to life I have been moved to a tiny, very religious town in west Texas. I really don't want to stir the pot too much, since my religious sister might be compromised. More likely shamed by my actions. But I don't like living a lie and I can't stand the hypocrisy that I am indulging in either. Its quite a situation I found myself in. Thanks for listening. I'm sure I'll figure something out.

I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

RE: Howdy
Hello! I'm from Texas as well, and although our situations are different, (as I'm only 15 and still live with my religious parents) I understand the frustration of feeling like you're living a lie. For me, I felt better right after telling my family about my disbelief, but I'm not sure it was the right choice in the long run since my parents reacted much stronger than I had expected. I hope everything turns out alright!
