"Hang in there! Social ostracism is a very powerful influence and can be very difficult to bear. One thing that has helped me in the past is to get atheist podcasts and listen to them when things get less tolerable."

My pleasure Fiona! =)  Hope your move to the USofA goes smoothly! I've always wanted to go to Australia myself - in part - because I'm a huge fan of Aussie Rules! *L* Hope all is well with you.
