@HappilyGeeky: Ugh. I know how you feel. My grandparents are super old school and when they found out that I’m a non believer I think I disappointed them for the first time in my life, ever, and I will never forget the look on my grandfather’s face. He brought it up one time since he found out, basically saying I “need to get my shit together.” What’s worse, is now I’m at a University that’s religious and now, more than ever, I feel outnumbered. We have a chapel in every dorm and there’s supposedly over 6,000 masses/services/whatever every year on this campus. I looked for an atheist club to join… and through my searching all I could find was that a few years back some kids try to start a club and the University denied them… they tried to go about it another way (not including the word Atheist in the name) and still denied. I pretty much live in fear now, because during my first week of school I was told not to talk about my beliefs by another student that was quite liberal and seemed like he had been around for awhile. My mom tells me all the time to watch what I post on fb and whatnot because she thinks I’ll get kicked out of school for my beliefs. Go ‘Merica.
