    I never came out, I …
    I never came out, I just always was an atheist. My parents are atheists too. There are very few in my town that talk openly about their religious views. Most people here are agnostic. Religion isn’t really something we bother to discuss. I just recently became aware of the atheist community on You Tube, and started to define myself as an atheist.

    When I said I was an atheist my mother said : “OK…have you already put the garbage outside??” . My parents are atheists and don’t really give a about religion. My friends also didn’t give a shit…99% of them are atheists.

    I’ve always told people that I’m an atheist when it comes up, and I’m 16. But I agree–if you live in a household where you’d get a negative response, it’s safer to keep your mouth shut.

    I’m coming out as a Christian. This day in age minus America, the stigma is the same.

    Sometimes “coming out” as an atheist is just as bad as coming out as a gay. Fortunately my family couldn’t care less.

    Because we ALL KNOW there’s only ONE religion right?…

    I just decided one day I didn’t believe any religious bullshit. no big deal. nobody really would care anyways. I swear, most of the catholics around here probably don’t even believe in God.

    agnosticism/atheism came to me in a car ride with my friends, we were talking about stuff, then came the topic of the multiverse, dark matter, and dark energy (this topic spawned off of a religious conversation). anyway, my friend starts explaining this, and me feeling like i did when i found out santa clause wasn’t real, he then tells my friends to go to his channel on youtube (justintheatheist if you’re interested) and see his paradoxes on god and christianity. so here i am.

    I am jealous. I now live at a resort town, where people from all over the world are constantly coming and going. I listen to people and hear their stories and a lot of them (like you) have never experienced religious dogma as a child. That makes me envious. Of course, I would not be who I am today if it was not for my past experiences… so, for the most part, I like who I am. I wouldn’t change. However, I’m still jealous…

    I live in Sweden. The most common answer you hear over here when you ask someone if they believe in a god is “Well I don’t believe in a god, but something.”

    “Not that there is anything wrong with being a lesbian, but come on…”

    I know a lesbian preist too. I don’t think there is anyone who really follow every word of the Bible. The Bible contradict itself and claim all sort of silly things, people have no other choice than to pick and choose what to believe of the book.

    Where do you live?

    I grew up in a very fundamentalist environment. In fact, I think I’ll make a video explaining exactly what I went through. The church I grew up in was exposed for paedophilia and various other abuses of children. One of the pastors turned out to be a lesbian! LoL! Not that there is anything wrong with being a lesbian, but come on… if you are going to preach that it is sinful, don’t you think you should NOT be partaking in the pussy?! LoL! :p

    When I came out…

    I have never come out as an atheist. Back here it’s pretty obvious that if you don’t claim to believe in a god then you’re an atheist. My parents and even their parents don’t believe in a god.

    I guess it’s a little different from where you live.

    I told my parents when I was like, 12 that I was abandoning Christianity. My step dad kinda had a problem with it, but not really, and my mom was totally expecting it because I’m a lot like my dad and my dad is pretty anti-religious…my mom isn’t very religious, really, she just goes to church because she has lots of friends there. So I’ve never had an issue with it…not even with my grandparents (they aren’t very religious either). I have the best family ever, really…

    Unfortunately (not) my father is an atheist and my mother is a wishy-washy christian so I never had any “coming out” problems, in fact there was no need to come out at all, they both just assumed I was an atheist. They were right.
