How to go about telling your parents you are an atheist

Sunday 11 January 2009 at 10:40 am While faith is a very personal choice and each of us have the right to believe what we want to, it can be a difficult and thorny issue when revealing those beliefs to your loved ones. While a spouse may be open to your lack of belief in god, your (or his/her) parents may not be so accepting and you can run some serious risks in damaging your relationship if you do not approach the subject properly.
Before you get into the subject with them you’re going to need to do some research. First it’s important to be able to properly define atheism, as your parents may have heard varying definition from a number of resources. Positions such as “weak atheism” (although I wouldn’t use that term), which refers to someone has no particular beliefs, or “strong atheism” which includes the active belief that no gods exist. Be sure to properly explain both if necessary and clearly define what your own position is. Alternatively it’s important to point out whether you’re agnostic or not, as agnosticism is the belief that there “could” be gods but it’s not something that can be proven or disproven. (more)
