The first time I told them I was an atheist, I thought they took it pretty well.  Once they saw me on atheists sites, they started to get mad. My can't understand how I'm an atheist. And my dad hates…Continue

"It's kind of like coming out gay: some people will accept it at face value, but start getting weirded out if the person mentions any same-sex attractions or dating, and certainly sex. What made you think about being Muslim?"

"You mention the Muslim thing, your parents track your online activity and their disapproval of your choice. My first thought: Are you an atheist or are you just trying to rebel from your parents? Don't get me wrong, it is perfectly natural to…"

When I told my parents I was an atheist

The first time I told them I was an atheist, I thought they took it pretty well.  Once they saw me on atheists sites, they started to get mad. My can't understand how I'm an atheist. And my dad hates the idea I am one. (Before I became an atheist, I was thinking about becoming a muslim. Isn't that crazy?). My dad teases me a little everytime I bring it, so I don't say anything. Its useless trying to tell them so I hide it. What do you think of this?

Hi Jim Tito, and welcome to this friendly meeting place where freethinking atheists recognise that religion is a huge fraud used to control vulnerable superstitious people including especially defenceless children;
and how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and even longer.
