For example in Japan, Japanese Christians today, like 400 years ago, often have to make a choice. Their family and social life with their friends and their faith. When you become Christian, there are certain things you cannot do because of your faith, like you have to buried, not burned.

Likewise, for Atheists there are certain things they cannot do, as go to church, celebrate Christmas etc. Now some Atheists chooses to say "Well I respect their religion so I can go to church, no problem" and you can still celebrate Christmas as a secular holiday. The same can go for a Japanese Christian. He can still go to the shrine and pray like all other non-Shintoists, but there are also clear things you cannot do. Sometimes your family doesn't get that.

Ah, I see what you mean, I had a bit of trouble understanding at first. but yes, your family shouldn't decide for you when it comes to religion. Like indoctrination for example. Family is there to love you, understand you and help you in hard times.

I myself am an Agnostic Atheist. (Or just Agnostic as I haven't really made my mind up yet). I celebrate Christmas. Not for religious reasons. But because I can give the people I care about presents (which they deserve after a long year). I don't go to church though, as I think that if you want to be real Christian you need to read the people from start to finish on your own and develop your own opinion about it, instead of having another person cherrypick phrases out of the Bible. Though that is just my opinion.

Yeah, I agree with you there, which is why I would choose faith over family if I had to. My faith doesn't require me to leave my family, it rather encourages me to meet my family, but in countries where religious freedom is registered by law, but in the eyes of the people it's wrong to be a part of the non-state religion, you will have a hard time choosing.

When you say "leaving your family" what exactly are you referring to? Do you mean that you make the decision of leaving your family or that you are being forced to leave?

If you mean that they are kicking you out, then they should no longer be considered your family.

If you mean leaving your family. It all comes down to how they treat you and not about what they believe in. Do they care about you and love you? If yes, then they are still your family. If they couldn't give a rats ass about you and hate for who you are, it would make sense to leave them.
