Sorry, have not been on here in while, and this one will be a quick one. I was recently visiting with my very religious dad. We had dinner and he, of course, said grace. Well he was anoyed that no one "echoed" when he said "amen." Made me think, dang, he is going to figure me out soon. So far i have been trying to come off as just lazy or just mildly jaded when it comes to church, but i'm sure if he knew about the secret stash of Dawkins books hidden in my room, the poor old dude would croak. I know, i'm much too old to be scared of my daddy, but really, what would "coming out" atheist prove? It would just piss him off, or worse, break his heart. Am i wrong to be... well, not lying, but not being totally truthful either. Have any of you guys dealt with this? Is it better to just smile and nod and echo a few amens, or do i show up in an "I love Darwin" t-shirt and kill my dad dead on the spot? What do you all think?
