I was the first in my family to choose not to be confirmed as a Catholic. That's immediate and extended family. As far as I know, none of my cousins have abstained, but there's 50+ of them, so I might be mistaken. So I suppose they all just assume I'm agnostic or atheist or just some very poor Catholic.
But I did just recently come out to my father as a Pastafarian. And this wasn't as a means of coming out as an atheist or agnostic. I came out as a Pastafarian to him to be out as a Pastafarian.
It went quite well, truth be told. He's very understanding. He even suggested that late president Teddy Roosevelt may have been a closeted Pastafarian. I mean, just look at some of the things he did. Great White Fleet? Very piratey.
