My parents never thought it was necessary to force me to attend church on Sundays or attend PSR. My mom taught me about "Who You Really Are" or "WYRA". Which is basically a mentality that most atheists can base their morality on, "Do good, feel good, be the person you know you really are". I can remember as a child how deeply jealous I was of my friends that were able to go to PSR, because like most 10 year olds, I wanted to fit in more than anything. I remember the first time I acknowledged I was an atheist which was several years before I gained the courage to verbalize it (its not easy being a sore thumb in a small, predominately Christian/White community). Today, I am proud of who I am and enjoy having discussing with those who can agree with my point of view as well as people who disagree. For those who have never crossed into the next dimension of thought, I feel sorry for them, it is scary at first to absorb all the information out there that has not been already taught by your parents, rabbi, priest, monk, etc. But it is worth it to understand the type of knowledge you are able to possess if you leave your myopic ideologies at the door.
