Hi! New here and needing advice. I was raised by a devout christian mom and completely apathetic dad (to this day I have no idea what he believes) in the bible belt.  I didn't really have anything…Continue

"I do not think that trying to convert her is a good solution.  She may feel ganged up on and is likely to pull away from you.  If she and your dad have reached a happy medium, then I would leave that business to them.  I think a…"

"I am so glad to hear that your mom is doing better! That said, I just wanted to urge caution in the "not into organized religion" bit.  That is the kind of line that will get your children Jesus books for every birthday, Christmas,…"

"Thank you for your good wishes for her health.  She is in full remission now, and the doctors have given her a clean bill of health.  Unfortunately, she is still in delicate shape; she still talks about being scared and praying about it a…"

"I hope your mother's treatments are going well.  If not, I would suggest not enlightening her as to what your religious status is.  There is no gentle way to break this news to a believer that loves you.  Especially one that is…"

Advice on coming out to mom

Hi! New here and needing advice. I was raised by a devout christian mom and completely apathetic dad (to this day I have no idea what he believes) in the bible belt.  I didn't really have anything else going for me as a kid so being a christian defined everything about me. I am now in my thirties, and my husband and I (we had a VERY christian wedding, ugh) are now atheist/agnostic.  This is going to be devastating to my mom, who was diagnosed with cancer last year and that has made her even…See More

Hi Amber

Well done. You have got it right. Welcome to this world of rationality and peace, where pure common sense can be quite enough to lead to the open freethinking wisdom common to non-believers like you and us.

Welcome, Amber! Glad you could join us. :D

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that's on your mind, Hang With Friends. You might also like Atheist Teachers, Women Atheists, Female Atheists, and possibly Feminist Atheists.

I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since the climate is changing so drastically.

After you've searched for topics of interest in "Groups" above and in the "Forums", don't forget to look at recent activity which hides along the right margin of the page all the way at the bottom.

On a personal note, I've developed an animated gif technique, sort of “pull quote marries slideshow”. Samples are scattered across various groups, but you can find them easily by going to my twitter account. Each tweet has a link (after the description and before the hashtags) to a visually rich example here at Atheist Nexus. If you like them, please follow me
