Does this ever happen to you?
You have nice, casual conversation with someone, don't really know each other, like moms at school, etc, the church or religious beliefs subject comes up and after a question like 'what church do you go to' orsomething similar and you honestly answer that you are a non believer, you see them change their face look, or body language like they suddenly froze?
Why is it difficult to tell people that you don't believe as opposed to saying thet you do and go to this or another church?
I just tell them that I dont attend a church. My husband and I are Wiccan and we live on the bible belt so its not a great thing to bring up. So I just tell them that I do not attend a local church and when they ask me to go with them one day I politely decline.

I get that everyday. When ppl ask what church do I got to, I tell them I worship at home, and that I do believe in the Most High God. Of course the word God means something totally different to me , and I dont exactly "worship" in the same since they mean it, but it's a satisfying answer every time. I find it much easier to appropriately play on words in situations like that. It keeps them hopeful and me peaceful, plus I dont have to worry about them asking what I believe in. Could you imagine their faces (and response) if I told them Imma witch, lol!!!
