Hello Nexus! Glad to be here!
Even after being on this earth for 30 years, I still have not told my anyone in my family that I'm an Atheist. Any suggestions on how I could go about it without them disowning me? I don't want to see my mom have a heart attack.
I know I should tell them ( I really don't HAVE to, but my mom has gotten super religious all of a sudden, and its beginning to irk me. Especially with all this talk about me going back to church and getting 'right with god').
Input is appreciated.
Welcome. You are in a tough spot. Check out the coming out atheist forum, there are bound to be ideas for you there. Maybe using the word humanist (if it applies) would be a good starter label for your mom. Good luck! :)
Ah yes, rednecks....ugh.
