The day before yesterday I told my dad that I was an Atheist via txt msg. I'll summarize how the conversation went.
After I told him that he said that he was shocked and asked me why. I recited my de-conversion story and told him that I had also read the Bible and that it was full of contradictions and asked him why he worshiped a god who demands the murder of innocent people. He asked me what I was talking about and I quoted three instances where god wanted people murdered for stupid reasons. He told me that I have to be filled with the spirit of god and can't read the bible with a carnal mind. He went on to say that I wasn't understanding the bible and that I was confused. I asked him how someone could misinterpret "put to death" and to explain what I supposedly wasn't understanding. He said that he would have to talk to me in person. And that in the meantime to keep reading. I went on to tell him about the lie of Christmas. He had no idea where I got my evidence from but that he hopes I change my mind. And yesterday when I asked him why does god support rape, piliage, and slavery his response exactly was "Don't listen to that, sweetie." However he did end with that he respected my decision and that he wasn't going to try to force his beliefs on me and that he loved me regardless. One down, three more to go.
