"Jeffrey, you are in a tough place. In order to "please" your parents, church, and friends, you are being asked to be false to yourself. But if you are untrue to yourself, that means you are not being true to others, so it is an impossible…"

"Let them be involved up to the point where an argument is about to start, then politely excuse yourself. It will hurt, and you will have to bear the brunt of it, but the rewards will be greater than the pain."

"Give them space, but don't ignore them or shut them out. You'll see as time goes by that people can learn to live with each other, even when they don't always behave the way you want. There is enormous value in family, even if…"

"For some things, you will want to cross that bridge when you come to it.  What people think at a given moment evolves.  That will be true for you and for them.   College help can come in many forms.  If you are doing well enough…"

"If I'm in need of help, do I even bother turning to them? As far as financial, or schooling needs? I'd leave as soon as I graduate, but everything seems so soon. I always felt like my parents would be there to help with college. But then…"

Hi Jeffrey and welcome to this wonderful world of rationality, truth and peace. As for mormonism, escape when you can. 
                                                            .
True common sense helped by science leads to atheist wisdom as you have well judged; so if the mormons would only listen to reason, there would be no more mormons. 
Lord Byron: “Those who will not reason, are bigots, those who cannot, are fools, and those who dare not, are slaves”
