Ok, title says all.

Of all religions, my family is Catholic and raised me Catholic but I've been enlightened over the years w/ too much information to believe in Catholicism (no offense).

I went to Catholic school and it's really hard to stay faithful to so many concepts I really do not agree on (I had history class right before religion which made it hard b/c I learned about history along side religion and I couldn't help but notice too many similarities between Christianity and so many other religions and then learning where these similarities came from and it's just too much).

Anyways, my mom is religious and she's sending my brothers to Sunday school and all and ya know, she follows it. I told her I was agnostic last year and my parents had a bit of a panic.

They're old fashioned and I even heard my step dad blame the guitar (mind you, an SG which means it has horns, I guess that had something to do w/ it, idk).

She tries to bring me back by telling me to pray at night, come to church w/ them and so on. How do I just tell her I'm atheist?
I've gotten a lot of LOLs in my time but I choose not to sig them to not look like a pretentious douchebag

Just because the Catholics are wrong doesn't mean you need to give up on God.
Blindfolds aside I'd probably still close my eyes

And try to feel a trembling fetal life inside

Recite Epicurus:

"Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?"

Then tell her you think he's spot on.

Mom, I'm totally disregarding yours and the rest of the family's beliefs by choosing to not believe in the religion that you hold sacred.
In short, I'm an atheist.
I think it's time for a change.

If she already thinks you're agnostic, maybe there's no need? if she's not forcing you to pray and whatnot then it doesn't matter what she thinks you believe. She might just worry for your soul if you told her outright. If she thinks you're agnostic or an undevout christian then maybe that's enough?
Maybe I'm wrong, I just can't see the benefits of your mum knowing.

In the period I was agnostic I was looking for a religion and while doing I kept finding bad things done by Christians b/c of their faith.

Do you really need a specific religion? It doesn't sound like you don't believe in God, just that you don't align yourself to a specific faith.

In all seriousness that doesn't mean you have to give up on religion, just Christianity. Lots of other options out there, atheism happens to be one of the more trendy ones at the moment.

Well it's not like you're telling her you're gay. it shouldn't be that bad.

But Catholics are ****ing crazy.
So given the situation, just let it come out in conversation. Just keep shut, but if it comes up somehow just be like "I don't believe in God......bitch"

Ask her the question: Could god create a hot pocket so hot that he himself could not eat it?

Just remember that the bible is the most valuble history book there is which is why scholors study it and it is a reference to the past times.

i think you probably want something to rebel against because you're young and ant to be hip. so you think turning your back is 'cool'.

don't worry. Jesus and God love you and will guide you back when the time is right.

God bless.

She does try to get me to pray. And to go to Church.
