Conversion to Christianity / Islamic parents Watch

    Mad that you haven't mentioned one of the most distinct differences between Christian and Islamic beliefs, that Jesus (Isa) either died on the cross or he didn't. Sounds like you just want a religious label for the sake of it and don't actually know what you believe. :rolleyes:

    As the title tells, i converted to Christianity not too long ago and I am bullied by my family for it.

    Why I left;
    - Light skin preference
    - Laws against women
    - Sharia law
    - Protecting Israel
    - Quran 3:151 (intolerance of Kaffirs)
    - Hadiths on black people
    - Taqiyya
    - Banu Qurayza/Mustaliq which made me see my prophet in a negative light.

    I have expressed my views to my parents but they still force me to attend Mosque to preserve family "honour" and I sometimes have to wear a hijab.
    The Quran does not say you have to wear a hijab, and trust me in Mecca nearly all women decide not to wear it; only when they come here.
    I have lived in Uganda (muslim country) for a year when I was 8 and I don't recall many women wearing a Hijab either or a Burka. Its only when they come here.

    Why I may want convert to Christianity?

    - My dad (Eugenio Maric) is a roman catholic (italian)
    - Stances on women
    - Equal rights
    - Offensive quotes in the bible were ruled insufficient by the Vatican Council II

    I have attended mass over the past year and I am currently on confirmation age. Which is causing problems in my family
    Help?
    Its a good thing you did what you felt was right. I mean your family will obviously have a problem with this as they are all Muslims but advice for you would be to just not mention it around them or remind them of it, it'll bring out a negative vibe. Just tell them that your sorry and you know your decision hurt them but ask them if they would rather you believe in something that doesn't even help you or make sense to you or would they rather you be in something that gives you peace and happiness. But just never force your opinions on them because it will just cause **** ennit. But this doesn't always work. What I would do is pray. Thats the best option, if you ask God to give you the strength to go thru your family's rudeness towards you he will and he'll stop the rudeness they have towards you too as long as you pray for it
    So best of luck
