Start by telling the family gossip — probably mom — what you are. The news will travel fast.

Tell them you have found a religion that makes you happy. If they love you, they will accept it. If they cannot accept it, then you probably dont need them anyway.

It sounds harsh, but you have to be true to yourself.

LOL This kind of thing bothers me, if your Pagan just tell them, I don’t get why newbies are so scared, to me, thier uncertain about it in the first place and they are not really pagan if they fear talking about it! True Pagans Don’t Hide!

You should begin by getting a discussion of religious freedom going… once it’s been well established that it’s an essential right of a free and enlightened society, you simply say something like “I’m glad you feel that way, because I think I’m interested in a religion that’s not Catholic”… of course after saying how much they support freedom of religion it would be pretty hard for them to reverse themselves and try to deny you your right to believe as you choose. After that, be prepared to present a quick summary of the religion you’re converting to, and have a… Read more »

First, are you able to support yourself? Do you have a place to stay and get food if they kick you out? Now, I don’t think that will happen; but it’s always wise to be prepared. How important is it, to you, for them to know? You might tell them that you no longer attend Christian Churches. That you have found a belief system that works for you. The less said the better. You don’t need everybody and his brother coming to Save you and cast satan out. If that starts, you may want to make yourself scarce. Tell them… Read more »

I can’t really figure out what you mean…I don’t think Catholics “dorship” Jesus, either, so you should be ok.

May I ask why you are pagan? Are you really pagan? Do you know what it means to be pagan?

I suppose if you must tell them then simply say it “I’m pagan”

Cautiously. Be respectful to what they believe, and they’re more likley to respect what you think.

Khalil Gibran once said :

Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of
Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you,
Yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love
But not your thoughts.
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies
But not their souls,
For their souls dwell
In the house of tomorrow,
Which you cannot visit,
Not even in your dreams.

Just tell them you’re really into your religion. They probably won’t ask why.
