This may apply more to the atheists,agnostics, pagans and satanists...but all can reply! When you are in the company of family or friends who happen to be Christian or any other religious belief, and you say you are atheist, agnostic, etc....and they come back and say, "Oh no your not! Don't say that!"
How do you deal with this? Why do you think people cannot respect that you have a different belief than your own? It frustrates me to no end, as if I am a joke because I am an atheist.
Usually I just smile and say, "yes, I am." And move on. But it is frustrating!
its very frustrating, but i only get it from my husband family..my family couldn't care less what my religion is, and they are mostly christian...my husbands family assumes everyone believes in the christian god, and if you say you dont, they laugh and say your just lost, and you'll be found soon...its so very annoying.

Ati_13 im glad your mom was able to accept your beliefs, even if it did take a while...i wish my inlaws were like that, when asked about my beliefs (satanism) i'll tell them everything they ask, then tell me im lying about what satanism really is (they think its evil) and tell me once again i'll be found ugh...
