When they find out you're not religious? I grew up in MA where religion was just never talked about. It never mattered, never came about in regular conversations. Over 2 years ago I moved to NC. Compared to what I hear in other deep south states, the part of NC I am in is still fairly open minded. But I do notice a lot more conversations or businesses affiliated with religion.

I've been lucky in that most people still have no issues with me being nonreligious, but then again I'm fairly "quirky" to begin with so I get the feeling people who start to know me expect me to be outside of the rules of society. Yet I've had friends who have been told their children are going to hell for not being brought up with God. Or I have heard it bandied about anyone without religion could never have decent morales. All of which is laughable, but it's still painful to hear my morales are questioned, even peripherally, because I lack the belief of something. 


Have you ever noticed a change when people find out you don't hold to a religion? How have you coped? What do you teach your children?
