I don't really know how to start this thread and I looked for another forum which is designed especially for the issue I am going to discuss here with you guys but I prefer CC for a reason which I will say in the end of this topic.
I want to start directly :
I am Yasser from *somewhere*.
my issue is I wanna change my religion !!!
I really don't know how to express this,I was born in a Muslim Family but I am not feeling comfortable with my religion ,and the problem is I am not religious at all but I am not comfortable with it because of the people.
I am kind of secular person but the case is I always loved the western lifestyle and wanted to be 1 of them,dealing like them,go to the church on Sundays and stuff like that.
of course I can't turn into Christianity in my current country not because of the government but because of the society.
I decided to change because of the Intolerance in my society ,so I started searching for another religion and I decided that Catholic Christianity is what I want but I am afraid of something:
I am afraid of fanatic people ,they are like a nightmare for me,so I am afraid that I will find my self in a new fanatic community again.
I know that most of people in the US are not fanatic and that's why I love the US and wanna be one of them but it's just concerns. "what do you think"??
I am really having a hard time here and I want to solve this issue because it's destroying my life day after day.
yesterday I decided to go to the mosque and try it "I never went to the mosque before BTW" ,so I entered and sat down for a while and seriously I couldn't stand it so I left because I don't like religious rituals.
I usually go to the christian areas in my town and I feel Ok, but the christian community in my country is a little bit fanatic too , maybe they had to be or whatever.
my main problem is my family , I don't know how to tell them this or how to say that I am going to turn once I arrive to the US.
my family is nothing comparing to my relatives because I will be like a criminal if I do that.
I thought maybe I will have to hide that but I thought that this is not a good idea at all because I am looking for my comfort not their.
I really want to talk to some 1 about this and I didn't want to go to religions forums because I am sure I will find fanatic people who will say what they want and not discuss the entire thing with me as I hope you will do.
I hope every 1 here who wants to reply to be polite and open minded *please*.
