Christians push their beliefs on me. When I'm at work, when I am driving down the street, even when I am at my own home.
There is this mis perception that many people have, that you need to have a religion to have morals. This is why I am an atheist who has a cross hanging from a rear view mirror, so that the cops are nicer to me (before they were complete asshats to me, stupid small city cops). I am not open about my atheism, because I live in such a backwards town that I fear that people would treat me different, and they would.
I have many family members who are Christians, my mother's side is Seventh day adventists, my father's side is baptist, with the exception of my paternal grandfather who is a pentecostal pastor. And my in-laws are Lutheran. I really do get all perspectives.
Just so you know, I don't have "run ins" with them, they are an everyday occurrence. In fact about an every hour occurrence, over 80 % of America is Christian, there is no "several run ins" about it.
With all respect how ever I don't intend on talking down to you, despite all these Christians that I deal with everyday doing so to me.
