What should I do?

Ask yourself: what would your family do if they knew? Would you get kicked out, or would they just treat you differently for a while? You know them best.
If it is bothering you to keep it bottled up, then perhaps drop some hints; throw some criticisms at church, god, religion etc. and see what happens. You can even disguise your opinion by saying "I read this in 'so and so'" and you can observe their reactions.
How did you come to realise that you're an atheist if you don't mind me asking? :)

I never told my parents, but if the had found out I think the worse that would have happened would have been disappointment from my mom. My dad could have cared less; he was in that category of who knows, who cares. But my mom's life centered around the church so she might have been crushed. Me being the sort of person that doesn't like to hurt other people's feelings, I just kept quiet about it until after she passes away. Which raises another question for me: should you hide your beliefs just to avoid hurting other people? I guess the same question could apply to coming out of any closet.
