Amusing Responses You Got From People When You Came Out About Being An Atheist.

I thougt It would be interesting to see some of the more comical responses people have received upon coming out. I'll start things off with my favorite.

I was about 16 and a guy in class found out that I didn't believe in god and he came up to me and asked

Boy: "So do you really not believe in god"

Me: "No."

Boy: "So.... You worship the devil?!"

I got this one in one form or another many times..... Gotta love the bible belt! :)

Try to call in to the radio show Your Legal Rights.  You can pose a question directly on the air and you can also talk to one of their bank of volunteer attorneys during the show hours.   Also check out the Department of Consumer Affairs website section on tenant law.  There are a lot of useful links in there, such as local housing advocacy organizations, what constitutes discrimination and what remedies and compensation you may be entitled to if your landlord breaks the law.

A funny reaction I got when asked about my religion, and I replied I'm an atheist:

"Awwwww... I like people like you!"

It wasn't so bad, I guess, but the phrase... People like me? Sounded a bit weird...
