One of the best descriptions of Atheism, why families should not fear their own supernatural deniers

Reddit.com/r/atheism showed me a great text from user : /u/iopha , who posted in response to a Christian mother being worried by their sons rejection of Christianity. Worth a read, especially if you happen to be an unsuremother yourself... 

"Hi Unsuremother,
First, off, though I am an atheist myself, I want to empathize a little: this must be difficult for you and your family. Your faith commitment is an important part of your life and it is bewildering to have your own child turn away from this. I don't know exactly what you believe, but you might be worried about his soul in the next life, or his behaviour in this one. If you don't believe in God, how do you know right from wrong? If you reject God, how will you be reunited with Him in the next Kingdom?
