Anyways, since this is a satirical spoof, it may not mean anything to them. Tell them that you are reading it to strengthen your faith, as many Christians would do. I used to a be a Christian, and I used to do the same thing.
If that doesn't work, you could always follow my other path, which includes doing the following things (in any particular order):
1) reminding them that your faith is your business
2) reminding them that faith cannot be forced or coerced
3) yelling "Fuck you!" many times (has worked for me, but only because of my... unique.... circumstances)
4) running away for extended periods of time, giving them a chance to remember why they loved you in the first place (easiest if you can drive and/or have a place to stay at. I usually just chill at one of my friends' house)
Lord of Numa wrote:You are correct. I think that the thing that turned me away from my faith in God the most was the realization that I believed in God because I was raised to believe in God. Had I been raised to believe in Islam, I would, and I would consider Christianity to be the false religion.
That is the problem with exclusive religions. Once you understand that, you can see how they are all bullshit.
I am pretty sure that I am an atheist, or, at least, an agnostic. However, when comparing Deism with Theism, it isn't hard to see which one makes more sense.

A local book store known as Chapter 11 may have it, and it's pretty close. Any people in Atlanta know if this store has it or not?
I'm only 14.
