Waiting until you are supporting yourself is not a big deal. I didn't start riding until I was 22 when I bought a bike as a college graduation present to myself. The bottom line is that if they support you financially then you need to respect their rules. Once you're on your own, do what you want.
The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
