raising my 7 year old daughter as an atheist (in the bible belt south, mind you)

interested in feedback/morale support in my being honest with my daughter about (the fact that) there is no god.  i live in south carolina, where even not going to church causes one to be labeled a 'heathen' , and parents are giving a good deal of flack about it also.  now to really introduce a wrench: i am also going through a divorce, where my lack of religious views were exploited and used to demean me.  perhaps i thought the group may have some advice to a n00b such as myself.

Hi!  My only advice is to continue what you are doing and to stay strong.  I also raised my daughter to be Atheist, and it was quite easy.  Honestly, I think she would have chosen to be Atheist even without my influence.  She is now in high school and also won't say the "under god" part of the pledge.  She is very anti-religion as well, which suits me just fine.  Good for you for raising your daughter to have a brain!
