← I'm an atheist. Is that a problem?

You can be an atheist and a cultural Christian (or Muslim, Hindu, whatever). You life won't change and neither will that of your children...unless you have godparents unlike mine (I think my aunt was one...not sure...). There are things you have to make a stand on, some you accept grudgingly and some that you accept because...well, you do. I accept Xmas - I like presents and feasting to excess. Is the god message there in the Goldthorpe household? No.... Not even the gods (sic) message as we have a tree and that's pagan, eh? Heck, I even get asked what my Christian name is sometimes ;-) It's still Mike...but Christianity is very missing in me...
