What should I do. I don't believe in Christianity/Catholocity (I'm not a full on Atheist though, I don't know what to believe.) and I don't want to spend 2 hours every Sunday plus Chuch for something I don't believe in. But if I tell my parents they might bed pissed or react negatively (read: Pull some religious bull****) And they'd probably make me go anyway. Last time I told them my Mom pulled some "Well that's what your family believes so you'll believe it too." bullocks. Plus the conversation would be very akward.
Also my cousins an full on Atheist so it's not unknown in the family... but then they'd probably balme him/get mad at him/ prevent me from talking to him. And he's my favorite cousin (But he's not the one who made me an Agnostic. I had my doubts even as a little kid...

tl:dr Read it.... or fine... I'm an Agnostic whos going to be forced to spend three hours every Sunday doing things I don't believe in.

Going to CCD and getting confirmed doesn't mean YOU believe in something. All that it means is you're being recognized as an adult in the Catholic Church.

As soon as I got confirmed I denounced my Catholicism.

If you don't know what to believe, what's wrong with getting educated on a religion?


3 hours in a church is not "education on religion".

Education on religion is studying a religion from a neutral point of view while also studying the historic and social context of the events that unfolded within that religion.

You're sounding redundant.

Heres a tip to get you started. You don't have to have to argue about what your family should believe in or proof of god's existance with your family. You don't have to disrespect them either.

But what you can tell them is that after many months or years of questioning your purpose in life you came to whatever conclusion you want to tell them and you hope they respect that. And as a human being who may have not have any religious affiliation, you will still retain the morals that you were brought up with as a child that were given to you by your parents and/or Sesame Street.

Well, I'm a very devoted Christian, and am non-denominational. I personally disagree very strongly with Catholicism. I have many friends who are Catholics, and not a single one of them shows any signs of spiritual maturity (that being my number one disagreement; it seems quite useless and ineffective.) You yourself have the perfect 'religious' family. Which, doesn't mean you have a perfect family, but they are hard pressed on keeping you in the loop as well. And, look how that's working out...

Aside from me rambling, I don't have any religious support from my family. So, I'm the opposite but the same if you get what I mean. And even though I disagree with what you are doing, I agree that you shouldn't spend 3 hours somewhere where you don't believe in what they are doing... it's kinda hypocritical.

Make your choice, and be mature about it. Change your signature would be my first advice, and then actually think about how you honestly think and could possible prove how life started, and make up your mind.

That's what I was going to say. I wasn't going to bash them or just say I don't believe in god. Ive been thinking hard about it all of my life and I just don't see a way the God that they teach about there could work and that it is my life decision and I'm fine with whatever they believe but I don't believe in it.

My Grandmother will murder me though. Next time I see her I will be dead.

not really...



he's sad, coming back from church, you just can't fight it

but seriously, i used to be the same, then i started to became an annoying prick everytime we went to church and my parents always came back home really upset, after a few weeks, they got sick of it...

now i never go to church
#28
What're your options really? Your parents are firmly in the wrong but, unfortunately, they can make your life very very difficult

The best thing you can do is go and make the best of it. But don't allow yourself to be taken in. Get both sides of the story. Read on your own or, if you want, come to the religion thread and hash things out. We'll give you both sides.

I don't want to derail this into a religion debate, but I hope you can see how that's logically fallacious on so many levels?

Stop being a puss. I told my parents I don't believe and my mom, brother, and sister threw a huge fit over it. It wasn't that bad, and my mom is like a religious nut. My dad didn't complain because he doesn't either.

If you don't believe, just tell them. If they start bible bashing locate your nearest music source and crank it up.

I agree with this. Going to church to learn about religion is like reading the Constitution of the United States to learn about America's history.

Understand that you're parent's are only doing it because they don't want you to go to hell. Just tell them that you have had a long, mature think about how you want to lead your life, and this is something that you don't feel you should be a part of, not just because you're a teenager that just wants to swear and do drugs and not abide Christian rules, but because you do not believe in this religion.

If they say no, just stay in your room and ignore them completely until they understand.
