How hard is it to adjust being an atheist coming out of a religious household. I know for me, i lost alot of family and friends, all of which were baptist christians, When i came out as an atheist.

"Excellent post!  The  video underscores an important point:  the religious have no business claiming to be the exclusive source of spirituality any more than they can claim to be the exclusive source of morality."

"It's important to be true to yourself.  Family and friends who truly love you will stay with you.  If you lose them, then they were not worth having anyway.  There are new friends out there too! Wishing you the best."

"My full sympathy to you ): Inevitably, when you come out as an atheist you will probably lose one person close to you-but looks at it this way, if they would not tolerate your atheism they are probably people you would not want to be close to."

"It can certainly be a lonely life as an atheist. I will probably have to keep it very hush until I'm older and could care less about what people think. Just not ready to fight so much ignorance."
