I can't stand keeping this a secret anymore! My theist family has forbade me from talking about them on this site! They have accused me of being a traitor and "not telling the whole side of the story" when I rant about their attacks on my atheism! They have demanded that I be silent, and given that they and watch my activity online [the few times I've accidently forgotten to log out of this site] and offline like a bunch of crazy paranoids, I have decided that I will honor that request [for now] and say nothing about their abuse. But the pain of dealing with it has gotten much worse now that I can't tell anyone. I don't know what to do. And I can't take it anymore!!!

This double standard is HORRIBLE!!

My mother has OUTED ME AGAINST MY WILL to some of her christian friends, and yet I am not allowed to say ANYTHING about them. This is TOTALLY unfair. And I can't express my horror and rage enough at being outed behind my back by a theist! All of a sudden I am subjected to "sympathy" from random friends of my mom who I am CERTAIN I have not told I am an atheist.

Seriously! I don't even mention their names or any identifying features! WHAT ARE THEY AFRAID OF?!

It makes me wonder if they secretly know that what they have done is wrong? IDK.GRRRRRR.....

I do believe that they are experiencing a lot of guilt about what they have done. Maybe they are afraid of the "grand atheist conspiracy" and our minions will seek them out and convert them!!!

Well we ARE a conspiracy of Satanists! Right? We dance naked around fires at black sabbaths and eat babies! Yum!

You could stop referring to them as your family and just rant about them without telling us who they are. But I really don't understand why they care what a bunch of lowly atheists think about them. Hang in there, if they really are feeling guilty about their actions then maybe things will begin to get better.

How old are you again?
At what point do your parents no longer dictate when and what you can think/discuss/express?
What threats do they have hanging over your head that allows them to control you in such a way??

I'm 21.

I cannot answer many of your questions Misty. I'm not ignoring you. I just can't answer until I go away to college next year and I can be sure that my dad [who checks our movements on the internet from time to time] will not discover what I say.

They're afraid that we may actually be right.

Christian "love" at its finest indeed.

I hope your dad is reading this.

It is my understanding that a grown man showing that much interest in his ADULT daughter's internet activities needs to take a step back and examine his own intentions.

There is something suspiciously wrong with this situation. I really hope you make it to school safely and as soon as possible.

Sounds to me like mommy and daddy have a really hard time accepting the fact that their baby girl is NOT a baby anymore and has a mind (and opinions) of her own. Part of being a parent is not only giving your children roots to grow with, but also wings to fly away with. That sometimes means accepting that your child isn't what YOU want them to be, but maybe - just maybe - your child is what THEY want to be, and their happiness is what matters.

Some people have a very hard time letting go.

Skycomet, if you have a way to get in touch with me privately (where they can't read it), I can give you a few steps that you can take to insure that they'll never see this site again (nor any other you wish to block from them) and your online activities absolutely cannot be monitored.
