Do you have to pretend to be religious to fit in?

I have in some situations.. but the older I get.. the less it happens. I've migrated my life to be surrounded by those of the same view, or tolerant of mine.

Nope... I just tell everyone my beliefs are PRIVATE and none of their business. The more they insist... the more I laugh and tell them to mind their own business.

No .I am an honest and good person and have no need to disparage myself in any way to be a member of society.

Nope. I have Christian friends, and they never try to convert me. I am up front about me being an atheist, and my friends never make a fuss about it.

I've learned to be me....and if they can't handle it fuck em. I live in the Bible belt and you can't throw a stick without hitting some church, synagogue, mosque or house of worship around here, but I push back when they start in with all their mumbo-jumbo crap.

Not at all. I've never been one to follow the crowd, in any way. I am who I am, & I don't pretend to be anything other than myself, in any form or fashion.

depends on the people I'm around. I am respectful of their feelings and know from experience that debate is time wasted

If I had to pretend then I wouldn't be there.

I normally just go with the flow if it is in a private household and this is what they believe or normally do. However my last job was working for a church and although I loved the work I often felt uncomfortable when it was suggested I attend church sessions. I felt that if I respect what they believe they should also respect my beliefs.

yes, especially if you live in a radical muslim society and you are going to be fired from your job or to be killed.

I have a direct question policy. I keep my lack of religion quiet unless asked directly. I generally scoot around the most common question "What church do you go to?" with "I don't have a church. I've never found one that works." Then they, of course, plug their own church; I reply "thanks, no thanks." and go about my day.

I don't pretend, but depending on the group of people I'm around, & the reason I'm a there. People can believe what they want, & my Beliefs are my own, & I don't always Share them, so to remain focused on the moment.

Sometimes I keep my mouth shut, I always run into situations here where someone has to "Thank Jesus" for every little thing, but I am honest when asked about my own position.

No, but I feel as if I used to (when I was younger) just to not to the odd ball; now I prefer being the odd ball.
