"It's possible that they gave a fake reason for denying you, but just as likely that it was a "religious" one. In Pentecostalism the AG branch believes strongly that God "wants you to prosper just as your soul prospers." If…"

"Oh, wow thanks! I really appreciate it! That brought tears to my eyes. It’s really hard to ask/accept things as we are so used to making it work when times are tough. This is the link to my gofundme account. Again, Thanks so much, I…"

"Hi, Jennifer! I would like to help, as I can see no better way to show your parents what charity is than a group of atheists coming to your rescue in your time of need. What is your go fund me website address? I can’t give much, but if like…"

"Wow, I wonder if they are noticing how un-christian they are being by denying you some basic needs. They don't even give you slack because you have been responsible, unlike your brother. You need support right now, and neither your parents nor…"

"That is weird.  But it may not be their real reason.  Very often people give a fake reason. "

"I’m not the type of person to retaliate.... I’ve just kind of withdrawn. I don’t have anything to say to them as of yet, don’t know what to say, really. They’ve always behaved so logically, understanding when we…"

"There's two different attitudes to take as it comes to that, Larry.  Jennifer could treat her family as she is being treated: cut them off, deny access, the whole schmeer.  I wouldn't fault her for one second if she did.  OR…"

"I wonder how yours and your husband's family would feel if you barred them from seeing their grand-kids because of their screwed up concepts of "charity."  It sounds like, "when you needed me, I was there, regardless of your…"

Persecution from your own family?

My husband and I have been atheists for almost a decade now. We have two little girls and currently another on the way. We both work full time, pay our bills, are responsible adults. We go to all of our family get togethers (his parents and my parents), and everyone is aware that we are atheists....and it has never been an issue, never seemed to matter. Until now. I suffered some complications from my pregnancy and was out of work for two weeks, which was pretty debilitating to our finances.…See More

Greetings, Jade! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home because of your wide ranging interests, and we encourage people to share their pictures. <hint to photographer>
