How does one deal being the Atheist needle in a haystack full of Catholics?
[This video best describes how I feel.]
Sadly, I am still doing the same ol’ Catlick song and dance for this reason and I haven’t fully “come out” about my atheism to everyone. I came out to my sister and a few close friends who are all Catholics, some people “sort of” know but in general, we just avoid the topic. From what I have experienced, most people around me are OK with “Not Religious” for they are not so good at practicing rituals themselves. However, they don’t like the word “atheist” at all. They can’t believe than I don’t believe in their god or any other gods and are concerned about my soul going to hell. Really, I am very touched.
