I was raised independent Baptist Christian, but this year I feel comfortable calling myself an atheist, or if anyone called me an atheist I wouldn't feel like I needed to correct them anyway. Man, it's hard when your whole family is still Christian. Fortunately I have a liberal Christian aunt who doesn't mind that I'm an atheist (or that I'm gay), but everyone else, I'm just on the outside and they don't even attempt to understand me. I'm sure any odd behavior is chalked up to "sin" and "the chaos of the sin lifestyle," because that's what I used to do.
I need to watch this special; I haven't seen it. I just felt like sharing since others have and I've connected with that. Maybe I should start an atheism thread here, I dunno.

Yes, the fact that I was barred from a happy ending (even one where he doesn't finish his game on time) was the main reason it didn't feel like I had the control the show was implying I had.
