Project Main Details

Phone Call to an Atheist Son Male 
I'm the host and video producer for an atheist website, ********************************** providing information and a safe community for those who have walked away from religion. This script is for a new video I'm producing.

In many of the correspondences I receive, I hear startling accounts of the personal consequences many apostates encounter with family, especially religious mothers and fathers. It's heartbreaking to see so many parents cut themselves off from their own adult children because of disagreements on religious issues.

This promo emulates such a conversation, via phone, between a mother and son, highlighting the challenges and (hopefully) drawing a circle around the need for families to accept their non-religious members.

Obviously, this project isn't a good fit for everyone on this page. But if you're sympathetic to agnostic or atheist material, I thank you for considering it.

Script Details

***custom demo required*** 
PLEASE READ MALE PART ONLY. In-character as a worn-out and exasperated son receiving a phone call from his devoutly religious mother. (It doesn't need to be a phone recording. I'll create the phone effect from the original audio in post.) The mother's side is already recorded, and I can provide a clip for reference if it helps with feel.

Male: Hello.
Female: {sounding pensive and a bit distant} Hi.
Male: Hi mom.
Female: {formal sounding} Hello.
Male: Look…I don’t wanna fight. {pause} I don’t wanna fight…
Female: {indignant} It is un…believable…that you would do this to us.
Male: Mom, it has nothing to do with you.
Female: {growing tension…volume starting to rise} Nothing to do with me? I’m your mother. It has everything to do with me!

Male: Mom. How old am I? {pause} How old am I? {pause} How old do I have to be before I can live my own life? Make my own choices? Mom, I’m not a kid anymore.
Female: You’re my son. And you know I love you. And God loves you…and

Male: Mom, I don’t believe in God.
Female: Yes you do.
Male: No, mom, I don’t.
Female. I know you do.
Male: We’ve been over this, and I don’t wanna fight about it

Female: {upset} I remember the day when you got on your knees and said, “Jesus, come into my heart,” and that was real…I was there…I saw your face…
Male: Mom, I was seven. I was seven years old. What does a seven year old know about anything?
Female: You used to read your bible.
Male: I’ve read the bible. I know what’s in it. I know what it says. And I do…not…believe it.
