Hi Motte, welcome to the forum.

Regarding "coming out": it may be better to underplay it rather than making a dramatic announcement.  The occasional indication that you don't really care much for religion might meet with less resistance than announcing atheism with a capital A.

Thanx for all the advice guys, appreciated ! I am sorry for the people whose families have written them off, at least you stood up for what you (non?)-believed in. Respect. You have backbone. For me I don't mind losing ignorant aunts and uncles, but I definitely want to see my cousins grow up. Catch 22. Choices ! Have a great day everyone !!

Yes I am a VERY PROUD Atheist,since I was 18. but sort of in the "closet", as I can only tell some people. The fact that I'm Afrikaans and grew up "NG-Kerk" Christian does not make it easier, especially i.t.o family and a LOT of friends. I would like to know if there are other Atheists who has admitted to all their conservative families and friends that they have abandoned this ridiculous religion BS, and how has it been recieved ? Wish I could just shout it out on FB once and for all and be free to be myself. And screw the rest. But then family is still family...this seems to be a tough choice. Huh?

Hello and welcome

I'm just wondering why you feel your in a closet? Do they make you do
religious things that you don't want to?
