So, I guess I'm off to church...

So, I guess I'm off to church...
My mother recently found out that I'm an atheist.She declared that I simply "don't know anything and have no right to make my own opinions." (It's not like I'm not used to this. Once I threatened to kill myself while she was at work and she laughed in my face.) My sister is a pantheist and my father is agnostic, but my mom's absolutely pissed and she's sending me to church from now on.
It's not like the church can make me believe, and learning even more about what I'm protesting (since I clearly know nothing) will probably be a pro for future argument, but I'm still bummed that my mom's found another reason to treat me like trash.
You can't ignore the people who disagree and pretend it makes you right.

Can't you wear a devil costume to church?

And your agnostic father, why doesn't he step into that madness?

Does your mother force your sister and father to go to church?

No. My sister is 28 and lives with her husband. I don't know if she'll make my father go. He doesn't know she's sending me to church yet, but he'll probably say something (though I don't know if it'll be enough.)
Once my bible thumping grandmother finds out, though...*shiver*

Many churches have discussion groups and bible studies where atheists/skeptics would be welcome.
In fact, I think many atheists would benefit from attending a few different church services as visitors/observers.
Maybe one like this...

Well, looks like you have no choice, unless you really want to go off the rails and start drinking, stopping out late and telling your parents what you really think of them...

Nah, just go there, and make it awkward as fuck for all the bible bashers. Ask them all the hard questions, if they are going to torture you by making you go there, at least have a bit of fun with them by torturing them back.

From my experience your welcome until you express a differing opinion or ask a question they don't like. Then your made as welcome as a fart in an elevator.

Sorry, it's football season. Think I'll have to pass on that.
