    When you get the chance, read "The Varieties of Religious Experience", over a century old but still IMO the best book on the psychology of religion.

    Best wishes. There are a number of conservative Christians in my wife's family that I was once very close too that think many of the same things about me. Some don't talk to me and some make a point of showing their condescending faux Christian love by tolerating my presence. Life's too short. After many years of sorrow I now feel blessed by their absence. I don't mean to diminish the greater issues when it's your own parents but you are at a point where no real communication will take place until they are motivated to initiate it.

    Our reason is quite satisfied ... if we can find a few arguments that will do to recite in case our credulity is criticized... Our faith is faith in someone else's faith, and in the greatest matters this is most the case. - William James
