How did you deal with religious parents/family and a new life as an Atheist?
I'm brand new to all this, and I live in the Bible belt (Texas), and until now my life has been 100% Christian.
What is YOUR story? I really want to know! Smile
Hey! Welcome!

Currently I am living with my religious fundamentalist parents who have not taken the initial statement about my lack of faith. Actually I was on Seth's podcast when I called in to tell my story. I have actually made several posts about it. I'll try to find one of the, and link it to you so I don't have to rehash my story multiple times. Don't take that the wrong way.

I just try to avoid my parents and their religious nature. If I ever come in contact with them, usually a very awkward silence ensues. I have effectively back listed my parents since they have repeatedly dissapointed me, and denied me what I think I deserve (contact with my real mother, etc.)

I just want to ask you a question, have you come out to them? Or are you waiting it out?

Tell me your story? How did you DECONVERT and what made you change your mind?

I am really interested in your story and your views.
