Family Visit

Well, my birthday was last Monday and my brother, his wife, their daughter, and my Dad came to visit. I have to say that right now I'm also pretty passive aggressive and have yet to really tell anyone directly that I'm an atheist, except for my brother and his wife because they tend to be more liberal and accepting. Well, when my Dad came to see my apartment I made sure that right underneath the TV were my books including: a bible from my first communion, a bible from my confirmation, and right next to them "God is Not Great" and "The God Delusion." Unfortunately, my Dad didn't say anything and I still don't know if he even noticed them. I guess I'll just wait and see if my lack of a religious preference comes up in the future.

Let it rip. Your atheism is nothing to be ashamed of. I wore my Godless American t-shirt to a recent family gathering and it prompted some good philosophical discussions. Good luck with your coming out.

I believe you win at the passive aggressive game! Keep throwing those hints, and making them less subtle, and when you finally come out, no one will be surprised. Also, welcome pdxatheist!
