I've started working with a woman who is very openly Christian. I can usually just brush that off but she can't seem to stop talking about it and it's starting to annoy me. At first I listened and let her carry on but when I realized she was expecting me to agree, I nonchalantly told her that I was not a believer. She pressed me to know why (as if I owe her that) and I told her that I was brought up Catholic, gave Christianity a good try but that the more I learned of these religious doctrines the more I doubted, and that further understanding of science has also discredited it for me. I was very brief and breezy about the whole thing. I want to keep the peace so I have tried to leave it at that and move on. She however cannot shut up about it. I'm constantly listening to her babble on about it and she even says "God bless" every time we part ways. At first I just overlooked it as her being an annoying person but I'm starting to think this is a bit rude. I've told her I'm not a believer, why won't she let it drop? I haven't risen to the bait yet but I'm worried that I'm going to and she's really not going to like it. I could quite readily talk her ears off about my own beliefs (or non-beliefs really) and the reasons behind that but I'm trying to be respectful and friendly. Is is so much to ask that she do the same? I find this pushy and hypocritical attitude of some Christians very irritating. If I were even half as assertive about my Atheism I'm sure she'd be rather upset. It just figures that I'd have to get stuck with one of the rare religious nutters in the UK. Anyway, I'm curious to know if anyone else has been in a similar position. How did you feel about it and how did you handle it?
