This question came to mind earlier today when I attempted to talk to my mother about something that was troubling. Her response was "pray about it"... Pissed me off. First, I didn't feel like that was her helping me or even hearing me out... Second, I don't believe what she believes and so her saying fricking pray about it just flat annoyed me....
Background- The majority of my family are Christians and a number of my uncles either have their own church in the city they live in or are actively involved in ministry. I am not a christian, but I have yet to have an open conversation with anyone other than my younger sister about my beliefs.
So how about you guys? Religion run in the family? If not, does everyone else know? How did they find out? How did they react?
