When it comes down to it, they are good people that strive to lead good lives, religion just somehow... corrupts it. I hate it so much, why does it have to do this? Why does religion and culture split loved ones apart and destroy relationships if you no longer want to be a part of it?! :whine:


And so you are, I assume, a good person striving to live a good life. When trying to reconcile, you might want to build on these similarities instead of bringing up the differences splitting your family. I am pretty sure you can live like a good Muslim even without believing. What does Islam say besides no pork, no alcohol, and praying to Mecca? Pick the qualities which make you and your parents good persons, show them you keep those qualities, and start from there. One step at the time.

There are several ways how to approach the problem. From being radical to submission, but there is a gray area in between.
