Some calm suggestions for Christian parents of atheist or agnostic children.

I avoid talking about faith with my parents now, because my view of God makes them fearful. I’ve gone from being “practically a saint” in their eyes to someone whose salvation they just might have to question if I go too far … and all because I don’t buy into the church approach to viewing God after they unveiled the inner workings before my eyes.

This is a very good article full of solid ways to filter the reflex responses many “people of faith” tend to dump upon the sincerely questing questioners. – Mere Dreamer


 

“Losing your faith is almost never a quick, casual decision. For most people, it’s an uncomfortable and unwelcome conclusion to a long and painful search for answers. So anything you say, or ask, that sounds like your child chose to quit being Christian is going to be unwelcome at best. At worst, it’s infuriating.”
