Since coming out last year to my family about being an Atheist I have noticed that there have been more then obvious increases in their religious behavior every time I'm around them.
For intense, my mother busted out her Bible, which has been at the bottom of a box in the back of her closet for the past 15 years. It now decorates the living room coffee table.
My oldest sister has suddenly discovered that she has taste for any and all angel paintings. So much so that she haphazardly hangs throughout her house. It's almost like she shoved everything already on her walls over throughout the house just so she could squeeze in an angel here and there.
My father miraculously uncovered revelations and apparently the anti Christ, Obama, is preparing us and the end of the world in nigh. He knows it makes me mad when he brings it up which is why it’s a reoccurring topic with him just about ever damned time he calls me.
My oldest brother whom the closest thing to religious that he's owned was the cross on his Gun's N Roses t-shirt now decorates his home with tiny wooden Jesus riding crosses above each and every door. Even the bathroom….
My adoring aunt who either has a preacher under her sink or she’s been investing in bulk orders holy water, that she lovingly tosses on me from time to time. Unfortunately she has to come up with a new tactic because I now deliberately wear a rain coat when ever she’s going to be around. Hehe, the raincoat even has a little image of a devil on the back.
Now recently my middle sister decided that the whole family should have a group outing... to form stronger bonds and all that warm fuzzy goodness that comes along with family outings… Yeah, by getting re-baptized again. What a JOY is that!
