So I had been agnostic for about a month and have recently become fully atheist, although it has been brewing for the past year and a half or so. If I tell my parents they won't have it at all and they may send me to a private Catholic school (I put up with that crap for 9 years of my life before high school) and carry out their (so far empty) threat they've been giving me ever since I reached high school after making me promise I would "stay religious". I wasn't really religious to begin with, but I feel I was rather ignorant. I'm not sure if I was ignorant, or if I was just scared to question/voice my doubts about the faith out of fear, which is in my opinion why Christians/theists follow their religions to begin with. It is most likely a combination of the two. But after much thought about my nearly opposite views on everything in my now former faith, analyzing the different aspects and concluding it is all nearly impossible, I decided I was better off without it and have been a proud non-theist for about a month and a half. I am still forced to go to church with my family, as much as I feel like a hypocrite for doing so (going somewhere I don't believe in). Of course, I would really rather just chill and sleep in on Sundays. Any help/support/thoughts?
