Story of me
I use to be a Catholic went to church camp several times i never really believed in it but
i thought it was wrong to not believe in it. I decided last year i didn't believe and i don't care i
was just gonna keep it to myself.
This year i told my family and my close love ones and i feel like i got a truck off my chest
i want to change everything.

The only thing that upsets me is that it makes my mother sad cause she believes. she's a Christian
and i feel like deep down she thinks i am doing something wrong but she still loves me no matter what.

I think with you saying it felt like a truck off your chest, you must be very comfortable with what you are now. Enjoy your life free from the fetters of religeon.

RE: Story of me
My mother is a catholic, born and raised. In fact, the vast majority of my family are religious or agnostic.
I've never hidden my atheistic views from family or friends, and I've felt no guilt in doing so. I've openly admitted my disbelief in religions and the supernatural as a whole for as long as I can possibly remember (much to my RE teacher's dismay).
I've never felt as though I ought to keep my beliefs/disbeliefs to myself, and I don't believe anyone should (providing their views are within reason, i.e. non-violent).
I suppose the point I'm trying to make is that you shouldn't be afraid of expressing yourself freely, just because it may not comply with someone else's views.

I'm sure you feel much better that you're no longer a closet atheist. Welcome to the other side. Smile

RE: Story of me
I was christened in a CoE Church and I started to go to Atheism then i was 17 when my Dad's partner started to talk alot of religious belief stuff at me during Tea Time, saying Have you ever ben to Church, Do you believe in God etc. So i said to her, It's aload of nonsense and God doesn't exist and that was the start of me being a Atheist.

Hey Arthur,

I just had a look at your profile and saw you live in Houston... I'm in Australia and I've never been to America but isn't Austin close to you??

Reason I ask is there's a very illustrious Community of Atheists there - http://www.atheist-community.org/
They're best known around the world for their TV Show - http://www.atheist-experience.com/

Anyway, If you're looking for some friends who share your new views, I'd recommend you make a visit (if it's not too far)

What exactly do you mean when you say you want to change everything?

I'd like to hear more of your story too, if you don't mind Smile

Scott, if he's in Houston, he's about 3 hours from Austin...I'm in his neighboring state of Louisiana......Or maybe I should call us Oilyana now.....

Arthur, the only advice I would like to give you is to not give in to any surrounding bullshit (Especially considering you are in Houston)....
Question everything........
Intelligence is the only true moral guide...
