Thank You Atheist Family!

You'll know your true friends when you're in need. My friends...my atheist family came through for me.

You’ll know your true friends when you’re in need. My friends…my atheist family came through for me.

I needed 18 more dollars for my son. I asked my family and friends for this money and they pretty much told me no because of my lack of belief. In that split-second, I almost regretted telling my family and my “friends” I was an atheist. If they still believed I was Christian, I would have had the money and then some without question. I was to the point where I was going to tell them that I was no longer an atheist and have converted back over some time ago; just to get the money I needed for my son.

Again, I don’t know if it was because of it being Black Friday or it was because I was an atheist, maybe both, but I went on my Black Atheist’s page to rant and in under 10 minutes I had the money and then some to help my son.

I sat there and cried in anger…it was anger because my family couldn’t help me, but complete strangers did. I was almost disgusted. I wasn’t expecting people to help me, but they did and I will be forever grateful.

Thank you, guys. You are my family, I know that now. You’ve been with me since the beginning and I love you all.

Note: I know not all Christians are this way. I have an ex mother-in-law that proves that. She gave me so many things for my son before he was even born; even her home. This is just to shed light that people will turn away from you just because of something that really shouldn’t matter when the same blood is flowing through their veins as yours.

If I had to sell my belongings, I was going to get that money for my son. Even if it meant he couldn’t watch his favorite learning show or Yo Gabba Gabba! for a while because of it. His well-being is what matters most. I couldn’t call myself a mother otherwise.

Edit: The reason I couldn’t ask my mother-in-law for the money is because she’s no longer talking to me because I divorced her son; she believes I’m the reason he’s homeless and losing 15 lbs.

I’ll try my best to repay you guys back for what you have given my son. I have a sense of peace right now. I don’t have to worry about my son not having what he really needs.

Again, thank you! I cry tears of joy tonight.

  1. Your family is, unfortunately, snobbish. Although they are zealots, there are some who feel persecuted by family because they become ‘more’ religious and are seen as loony. Besides, there are non-believers display relentless assaults on religious folks (and periodically on other atheists). Either way, sorry you had to go through that.
