I have been a pagan at heart all my life. I just recently found this group and put a name with how I felt and realized there are ppl like me.
My husband's family spends ALL of their extra time at their Church (the same church that I was baptised and confirmed at) I know his family would feel uncomfortable with the path that I have chosen, so I don't talk about it around them. It's really becoming obvious at my home, with my decor (my altar) and my choice in reading that I am a Pagan.
My side of the family doesn't care that I don't follow thier path but they don't show support either.
How do you deal with the Christian vs. Pagan arguments? I know how I feel about it and all I can do is smile and let them know that I am not trying to change them, I just have a different belief.
My grandparents hear the word Pagan and they think "Devilworshiper". I try to explain to them that I don't even believe in the devil. It just goes round and round, I don't want to sound disrespectful but what do you say?
