Should I tell my family I’m agnostic?


Most of my family is super religious, and I just don’t believe in any of that stuff. They want me to go to confession, and I think it’s stupid. What should I do?

Like all difficult things to handle I suggest telling them in a public setting and saying exactly what you feel. Don't give them any wiggle room to try to make you change your mind: "Mom and Dad, I have a hard time with organized religion. I identify as agnostic."
You should tell them how you feel, but be aware of how they may act.
