I am thinking about coming out of the broom closet to my father in law and his wife. He is a very strict Pentecostal. I am kind of getting tried of how he pressures my husband to make us go to church. My husband has told him I am not a Christian, but he did not explain that I am a pagan. This man bad mouth pagans all time. It kind of offends me, but I keep my mouth shut all the time. I am afraid that he will make issues when it comes to our children. I kind of what to make a stand now about it, instead of waiting until our kids are old enough to be hurt by what my father in law says.

IMO you should get it all out in the open now so when your kids are older, he will be used to it. I also think your DH should be the one to tell them or at least be there at the same time. It will probably be easier for him to break the news and tell them that you both do not want your kids to be subjected to their beliefs and stuff without permission.

Mo2a27, she never said she was ashamed :) Sometimes, Christians ostracize nonChristians and when it is family business, it is a delicate situation.
