As an atheist that is...
My close friends know and they don't really give a hoot either way, but I don't know how my family would take this news. My parents aren't the most religious people and we don't go to church, but my whole family is indeed Christian. I have been pretending to be as well just to make things easier, such as taking Bible classes and actually doing the work and so on and so on.
I could just keep doing this to they all die and do the same with my girlfriends as well like I have been. But sometimes it annoys me when they talk about God or mention "the Bible says..." and I just have to nod and agree. I'll talk to my mother about things and every once and while she'll say "I think that is what God wants" and I'll just die on the inside.
My mother is normally cool about most things I do or think. But, I do have a feeling that her and the rest of my family will flip their shit and try to save my soul if I do this. That is the bad side, but on the good side I won't have to feel like I am a liar.
What would you guys do? Have any of gone through this?
