    I read proverbs today. Perhaps for the first time ever. I can not be sure. Great stuff.

    Thank you for the advice cp.

    have a serious sit down talk with your parents.

    start out by asking them if they love you (they do)
    Then tell them how you feel when they mock your faith. Tell them that if they love you they need to stop mocking your faith and trying to get you to stop believing. That you will never stop, it is part of you and you need them to give you respect if they really love you.

    Sparko that is perhaps one of the best and the most risky things I have ever considered.

    It aill take tome planning to pull it ofc and not have it self destruct.

    well if you want them to respect you as an adult and take you seriously, at some point you will need to confront them about it, like an adult. Just be respectful and let them know how their negativity is hurting you and your relationship with them because you do love them and respect them and just want the same in return.

    What's the worse that can happen? They laugh at you and mock your faith? They are already doing that.

    I'm getting the impression that your parents are very liberal and would embrace you if you were gay accepting that it was part of who you are but cannot abide the fact that you're Christian.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    My mom is not a liberal but I do get your point. She has some wacky ideas about spirituality and the bible.

    That's exactly what I told Mr. mossy when I shared TW's situation with him.
