'Coming Out' to Family with Disbelief
By Breaking Up With Jesus on October 16, 2012
Being honest with family about something as personal as spiritual beliefs or non-beliefs can be a daunting challenge, especially with the onset of the holidays. One blogger wrestles with the concept in her own way:
"I am closeted about my unbelief. I have only talked to some close friends, my adult son, and my ex-husband, about doubts. The holidays are coming (I start dreading them early). I don’t feel like I must come out to my family, but I kind of want to – but I don’t want to freak out my mom. I (alongside my ex-husband) have told my parents that I don’t believe in the rapture. It freaks my mom out. She can hardly stay in the room."
