Okay so my dad’s side of our family is rather WASP-ish to the point of being a bit anticlerical.
My dad is an abivalent agnostic (“i guess there is a God but how does that effect me?”) but he is also very indecisive and my stepmother (a quiet but strong athiest) is rather manipulative and so essentailly her opinions become his very quickly.
that said I am in an awkward spot because I am applying for priesthood formation. while obviously in a contest between dad and God, God wins, my issue is that I like my dad and dont want to dissapoint him. Which leads to my REAL problem: I am halfway through the app process and I still haven’t told him.
Advice? anyone know of a good way to break awkward news? cuz I’m like a bit scared if you could imagine.
