I'm dating a very lovely turkish australian guy from a Islamic background. He's not religious at all apart from not eating pork but still identify as a Muslim. The problem is my dad has a unrealistic fear of Islam and can be zenaphobic towards muslim people. He's not a bad person but I'm not sure how to tell him Im dating a Muslim.

How long have you guys been together? If you feel like you should tell them, just go lie "Hi mom, hi dad, this is my boyfriend xxx, he is Turkish and he is an amazing guy and i really like him, and your approval would make me very happy." They should accept it, it is your life and not theirs. Also, I find discrimination against certain religions ridiculous; my dad is the same as yours.0
