Someone here mentioned "A rebellious stage". Well I am not rebellious, just honest. Also tired of these fools. I also think xianity and its like attracts the worst of humanity.

I would avoid this relative like the plague. Fuck 'em!

Send him an email of your friend, me, wearing this T shirt.

RE: Relative says I can't wear atheist t-shirts in his house.
I gotta tell ya bud, I'm in your corner. I'm a little surprised at some of the reactions from our members on this one. If someone loves me, they love me for who I am. If I'm an atheist who likes to wear atheist shirts (and I am) then you either accept me for who I am or you can go suck a fart.

In your case, this guy confronts you, an adult, and says your shirts offend him and you're not allowed to wear them there. I would tell him if he wants to see me, he has to accept me for who I am, and if not, then he isn't worth your time. I'm sure your uncle doesn't have the market on all of the family get-togethers so you'll still be able to see them. I also would be proactive and inform the family that this fucker is black balling you because of your worldview and fashion choices. While it's his house, he is hurting the family as a whole and keeping them from seeing you. You should be just as offended by his actions as he is by your trivial shirt, so it would seem you are at an impasse. If your family loves you and respects you then they will apply pressure to this narrow-minded asshole and solve the problem for you.

If he can't accept you for who you are, then fuck him. Everyone on here would say the same thing if he were merely a friend, but because it's an uncle and family is slightly involved they all of a sudden tell you to not be who you are and to pick your battles? Bullshit! Stand your ground and make him understand he's offending you worse than your shirt offends him.

Or, you could go to his house, wear an "acceptable" shirt and then make EVERY conversation about how ridiculous his religion and irrational beliefs are.

We have a cause?

Is "just 'cause" a good enough cause? Consider

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

Should I tell him he can't come on my property because of something he wears?

No, tell him he can't set foot on your property because you're offended by bigots. Drinking Beverage

I was taught to respect the rules of another person's home. I see your choices as finding another shirt to wear when you go there or don't go there.

It's not about standing up for a 'cause', it's about respecting another person's home.
