I don't even think about it, unless it's shoved in my face.

Generally speaking, I only consider it an "us vs. them" when we're talking about religious groups that want to impose their religious beliefs upon the entire population, whether or not the entire population agrees with their particular brand of religion. That's why I, in general, have no issues with those non-Abrahamic faiths. In general, "others" only try to live their beliefs themselves, and don't expect the rest of the world, or even smaller-scale communities, to conform to what they believe. So, while I may not believe the same, I don't really care what others believe, or live their lives by, until "they" try to impose their beliefs on the rest of "us".
