I wanted to buy one but my mom would know, she already knows I'm an atheist of course, but by buying "God is Not Great" I would have to explain to her why I think religion is poisonous. She finds comfort in her belief (we're hispanic so my family's bound to be religious) because her dad was an alcoholic, and part of AA is belief in god. Telling her why religion is poisonous would be like kicking a crutch from under her while she's healing and I don't know what to do.

Indeed Gila, sometimes it is tough, i can only speak for myself when i say in good times it is like taking a breath of fresh air.
Thanks for all the support guys. She knows I'm an atheist but I haven't told her my serious views yet. I am deciding to wait a bit but tell her soon so it doesn't blow up in my face later.
Just remember Torkoal, we are here to support you in anyway possible.
