I would like to get opinions on this issue. I am a 22 year old atheist and in good reason pretty certain, like all of us, that religion is absolutely incorrect for many reasons. However, I met a guy who is more agnostic than Christian with his thoughts but is incapable to be honest with himself and admit he is not orthodox Christian. For these reasons the separation of our beliefs have worked between us. When we discuss things we actually get somewhere. I actually understand his ideas as he does mine. The problem occurs with his family being strictly Christian and him caring far too much into their opinions of him. His father invited me to a church event and out of respect I went but he found out that I was atheist and has since told Pierce ( my boyfriend, his son) that he is disappointed in him for not trying to convert me and picking a girlfriend with such views. Since this conversation Pierce has told me that he does not know if he could ever fully be happy if I am not a Christian. We are now all the sudden arguing about it and he is being scared back into Christianity by the fear of losing his Family.I am sure every person who is reading this understands my frustration. Should I let it go or hang in it in hopes that reality hits him. I am not interested in Pierce or his family to believe in Atheism, but to accept me as I do them. Again what makes this so hard is that my boyfriend is not really a Christian he is just too scared to admit otherwise to his family. Without this problem we would be perfect and probably thinking about marriage by now.... HELP???
