I have a different problem with my family and friends. We are all very secular, so there are no denunciations of my evil intent. Rather, I find that I get ignored when I try to talk about such things (hence I don’t bother any more) and I’m starting to be regarded as a bit odd. When people don’t understand things here, they tend to view them with suspicion and think that those who are interested are weird or a bit loony.
At best, I don’t talk about it to maintain everyones comfort zones, though it leaves me feeling quite lonely in the midst of my own family, which isn’t a fabulous thing.
