1. Have you told your family what you believe? Why or why not? How much have you told them?

2. If you have "come out," how did you tell your family? How did they react?

3. If you haven't "come out" do you think you ever will? Why or why not?

Really, I have neither told nor not told my blood relatives, for the most part.  Because they don't care, it's none of their business, and it's not the sort of thing that we would talk about.  I've probably talked more thoroughly about religious stuff with my father's wife than anyone I'm related to -- because she's a theology professor and some sort of ordained, and so we have being religious in common, a factor I don't share with any of my near bloodkin.  (Leading to the fascinatingly hilarious comment when we were discussing the current state of pagan theology of, "OH!  You're like BAPTISTS!")

I discuss religious symbology with my mother, an artist; I discuss philosophy of a wide variety of religions with my father, who is fascinated by that sort of thing (and I gave him a copy of the Principia Discordia a few years ago).

I have never "come out" to any of my friends, because I have never been closeted.
