When I first told my mom I was an atheist, we got into an argument about the fact that Christmas was originally a pagan holiday. She disagreed with me saying, "it's the day Jesus CHRIST was born. You know, Christ as in Christmas." And I wanted to die bc I, an atheist, new more about Christianity than my Christian mother. She also proceeded to tell me she wouldn't throw he beliefs at me yet told me the next day "I'll give you proof that God is real. "

Yeah… Honestly Christian’s who believe Christmas truly is the birth of Christ or that the earth is (what is it 6000 years?) x years old make me cringe.

Im proreligious freedom, im just not pro fact ignoring.

Im sorry you had to deal with that fam, trust me youre not alone.
