"It's happened a couple of times, and I'm never sure how to answer it. If they know you're an unbeliever, the one thing you MUST do is realize they're insulting you. There can be no more condescending thing to say than the…"

"I'd have to say it's more like they love the person they THINK you are. The real you is invisible to them, because they don't want to see it. It's a lonely way to live, and eventually you'll have to make some decisions about…"

"Worse is the one I've gotten about three times: "You're such a good person, I think you're a Christian without knowing it." It's funny, but it's also sad ... because I know I can't possibly get them to see…"

"Argh. The same technique works in duck hunting -- you hide in the bushes and make noises like a duck, and then pick off the ones who fall for the deception. This is not the first faux-atheist I've come across. "Hey, I'm an atheist!…"

"It was Dear Abby or Ann Landers, some years back, who asked her readers "If you had it to do all over again, would you have kids?" And more than 70 percent said No! They said things like "I had all these plans, and having kids wrecked…"
