  • not at all. i distance myself from ppl who think that their beliefs are the only right beliefs. my husbands family are very christian. like they pray before meals and everything and are always thanking God for everything good that happens. i do believe in God but i don't believe he's the reason for good things happening. like the birth of my daughter. that's biological, it's not a miracle. but i respect their beliefs and they respect mine

  • Sometimes maybe... When it comes to my very close friends, if we have different views on several BIG issues, it can make it hard to stay close. But in general, no.

  • Well being an atheist I think I can safely assume that most people are a different religion (Though I've met a few that share mine) so it's rather silly to distance them on something as small as a difference of opinion on whether or not God exists. So no I don't. I don't judge people on beliefs. I choose to keep them close or distance myself from them based on the kind of person they are, their character.
