Exclamation The lonely pagan - April 6th 2013, 05:33 AM

Merry meet;P I am the only pagan in a family with 2 atheists and die-hard christians. My mother knows that i have been into paganism, but she doesn't know that I completely converted. All of my family thinks I am christian actually. I am nervous to tell them. Normally, I wouldn't say anything about my life to them, but when they constantly give me scriptures from the bible when i ask for help or tell me that I have to pray to Jesus and not anybody else, I feel like I kinda need to. Any advice for coming out Pagan to a family of hardcore Christians?

Being a United States Citizen, you are given the First Amendment that allows "Freedom of Religion". The best way to tell them (if they're a more 'hardcore' Christian Parents) is too just be open about it. Don't go saying that you think Christianity is bogus or something, just explain you are exploring other routes of religion. Just be honest, that's the most important thing.
