"Really wonderful too read, I am really sorry you had to go through all of that. Reading everyone's experiences with regards to how they were raised religious has been a real eye opener to me. I used to be of a live and let live ideal when it…"
"I think posting things on Facebook where they can see them, but not directing the quotes or thoughts right at them, is a good idea. I'm sure they pay more attention to your page than you think, even if they don't comment. You are,…"
"Thank you for your responses!
Yes on Facebook I post a lot of atheist bearing quotes and youtube videos about the subject, though I don't know if they read my page at all.
I may try a few of your suggestions on my older brother, since he is 18…"

"I know exactly what you mean, I've experienced this myself. My natural instinct was to guide them, but I was hesitant for a number of reasons (could have caused them to fight with me, their parents, each other, or others). What I did was ask…"

Why you left your religion.
My father is nonreligious and my mother is an ex catholic. So I was never taken to church, or taught anything religious. When I was little I believed in a god though it was more of just someone that watches over us, and a nice place we go to after we die; nothing about sin, hell, or the bible when I was about 11 I just stopped believing in any god whatsoever, don't really remember why.
