I have been dating my girlfriend for almost two months now. I met her at the beginning of this school year (she's a sophomore and I'm a junior). Her family is devoutly baptist, as is she. However, she was fully aware that I was atheist before we began dating (as was her Mother who isn't very excited about the fact). Lately though, my atheism has been having a larger impact on her and she seems to be much more questioning about the world around her and her faith especially.
It is quite apparent that the only reason she is even a christian at all is because of this bullshit indoctrination that we force children to undergo from the moment they step foot into the world. It pisses me off that we do this shit to our kids. They should be provided the chance to choose what they want to believe when they mature.
And the thing is, I've been in her shoes. I was raised in a catholic family and have been baptized, received first communion and been "confirmed". I was pushed into the religion from a young age and blindly accepted any garbage thrown my way. It wasn't until a few years ago that I actually began questioning things.
From the way things are between me and my girlfriend now, I honestly think that within the next year or two she may actually let go fully of her fucking cult that she likes to call, "christianity".
