Letting someone know you're an atheist.

The only problem with that Rigil, is that they would insist on (at least) a weekly session where they sit and hold your hands and pray for you, and the more fundy of them would want to lay their grubby germ-filled hands on your head in an attempt to evict any latent demons from you. You'll be inundated by sms, email and other forms with spam messages proclaiming that god loves you and whatnot. I'm not sure whether I'd be able to stomach that.

oh hell no. i still find that people who know im atheist, and seemingly kosher with it, accidently adds me to there huggy-huggy touchy-feely remails.
i use to have fun trolling them, now i simple ignore them.
maybe a bit of plain and simple 'no' must suffice.
can we pray for you? no.
do you hate god? no.
why did you stray? none of your business.
did your lover turn you from god? no.
god loves you. super.

they will get sick of it soon enough. ooh ooh, or even better!! when the questions start, answer: ask god. tehee! >:D

Sherbet yes.... I didn't consider those repercussions! And besides, putting up a religio-envious front like that is unlikely to sit well with most atheists. Oh well, back to defense by declaration: I'm sorry, but my brain just doesn't work that way.

I'm sure many would reply: "Well I asked Jebus and he revealed to me that you hate him".

and when you burst out in tears (or throw a temper tantrum) out of sheer frustration at their idiocy, they exclaim: "See, its gawd touching your heart!!" *headdesk*
