It hasn’t. At least – in my eyes, and in my experience it hasn’t.
Maybe some members of my family look on me differently, or treat me differently. I haven’t noticed, however. I love my family as much as before. I enjoy our family gatherings and rituals (yes, even Christmas) as much as before.
I do live an un-Biblical life. I do not hate my father and mother, my wife and my son, my brothers and sister and their spouses. I adore my nieces and nephews, and love being an uncle almost as much as being a Dad.
Being an atheist does not mean not loving family.0
