The other day I got the guts to tell my mother I'm Atheist. I was scared, because we come from a Catholic family. "No, you believe in God, you only think you're Atheist." Is what she said. It's frustrating. Is there anything I can do to make her get the point? Or should I leave it alone?

Even if the castle, burns away to a crisp, if the decomposing bodies, are one day nothing more, eve if my secrets, one day lose their allure, even if the gold, one day turns to dust. My vow I shall keep, and not stray from it's path, all for one and one for all, I vow one day, the Dark King will fall.

You can try explaining to her that an atheist is someone who doesn't believe in gods and that you're sure you don't believe in gods, so you're an atheist. Unfortunately, she might need time to get used to the idea, if she does at all. Best of luck; I'm always here if you need to talk.

The thing is, she knows what an atheist is. She thinks just because I have crosses and tiny glass angels means I believe in God[s], even though I just think they're cool to have. I'm starting to think maybe she's embarrassed or something. I try to talk to her about it, but she just shoos me off.

I wouldn't suggest coming out as an atheist until you're at a point where you have your own money and can keep yourself stable, and they can't punish you for it.

Pastor Rick did a sermon on this. Basicly....you need to rethink your decision, try non-demoninationial for a spin.....just evalutate every religion, non-biaost, and just think everything through before you make a decision for the rest of your life.

I'm sorry, hon. She's in denial. I'd give it some time. Please don't feel like it is necessary to get rid of your crosses or glass angels. A person is an atheist because of their lack of belief in gods, getting rid of religious symbols isn't necessary. There are atheists on this site that support you.

I think that, like coming out about sexuality, it depends on the parents. I recommend caution though.

Yeah. I just think it's a safer move overall to just wait when a harsh reaction isn't going to be as devastating to your life. If you're already moved out and living on your own and they hate that you're an Atheist and try to disown you completely, it's better than if you're 13 and still have another 5 years with them.  Of course not all parents, in fact few have that reaction, but I've seen it happen enough.

That's why I always recommend knowing a parent's stance on these matters beforehand. When it's safe to come out, not doing so can just cause more stress.

When it's safe to come out there usually isn't a problem, though.
