Well said. You get a star and flag for that. I have often said to my wife (who is Catholic) that it's not just that I do not believe, I actually think it is harmful to society. She has told me it's god first, then the family. I think that is absurd. Nothing before my family.
Agreed. Any god that is conceited enough to expect people to choose his silly rules over their own friends and family can go eat a bag of ****. I'd rather spend eternity in a lake of fire than pander to such an arrogant entity if he were in fact real.
When you take care of you family you take care of something that is part of god. You can believe that you are disconnected from god all you want and that your family is but that does not make it true. Obey the golden rule and try to enjoy life if you want to. One day when you are ready you will allow god to connect to you and then you will understand.
