I was christened protestant and have always celebrated Easter and Christmas.
I attended a faith school (C of E) between the ages of 4 and 11 and was forced to sing hymns and say prayers every morning, as well as being forced to attend church. I was told off and humiliated in front of the class if I dared question hymns, prayers or the creation story.
I first read the God Delusion when I was 15 and decided that evoultuion and atheism simply made too much sense to ignore. I told my family and they were supportive, but I hated every second of my “religious education” and no child should have any faith pushed upon them.
