How would I go about telling my Christian Family I've become a Pagan?
I'm a Adult so It's nothing like that. I just don't wanna become the "Blacksheep" of the Family over this. Any tips?
If they are really your family and love you they will accept you, just come out and say it
They probably won't know what you're talking about.
I have the same problem. I don't have an answer for you, I'm just telling you you're not alone in this situation.
If you are an independent adult, there is nothing preventing you from telling them the truth. Tell them gently, preferably over alcohol.
Why bother? Why cause trouble, unless that is what you want. They would probably only laugh anyway.
do your research of both religions and then tell them and the reasons why.
Dude, there's no way you're not going to be the black sheep, you just have to face up to it.
"I'm a Adult so It's nothing like that. I just don't wanna become the "Blacksheep" of the Family over this. Any tips?"
Yeah - keep your mouth shut, or learn to deal with being the black sheep that you WILL BE called. Really - is sharing your beliefs with your family important enough to you to risk being labeled as the black sheep?
Tell them "mom and dad, I've turned my back on God so that I can dance around in my underwear with naked forest goats"
Just tell them. They will pray for you, you already know that and I hope you come back to the side that will win! You're master is not nice as ours is.
Discretion is never a bad idea. One day our folks may be deciding on who gets their property when they pass. If they are Christian , they may leave it to all to the church if it means giving it away to a pagan.
If you feel you must tell them, simply state it in a non dramatic way. They probably know already that you are not a Christian.
Just become Atheist its better than pagan
Just tell them. I mean its not like you were a Muslim, they're not going to kill you over it.
I told my mother because I felt I needed too. But I didn't run around telling all my family or announce it at a family get together. I don't hide it but don't bring it up. If I were asked by anyone I would tell them. Course they all knew I had stopped going to church ages ago.
I guess my tip is don't make any announcements. This is a private thing. If someone asks specific questions then answer because you also shouldn't hide it.
