My name is Alden, I'm new to the site and new to Islam. My parents are both "devout" Catholics, and I was what you would call a "cradle-Catholic". A few months ago I sat my father down and explained to him that I was not spiritually satisfied with Catholicism, or Christianity for that matter. I'm currently listed as a practioner of Hinduism because that's as far as I could go. But, I have a friend and her parents are both Islamic. I asked them about the beliefs and whatnot, and at that instant, my mind was made up.
I just need some support I guess...this is not going to be easy. My parents both being active in society are scared for their reputations and scared for me as well.
