Well, I am not religious myself, but most of my friends are and I can even discuss religion with them without getting into a verbal fight, but I come from Spain, it seems to me that in other countries is easier to talk about this matter than in The US
Then I moved..., Americans seem to become a little bit nervous about religion and politics, it is really easy to have a friendship ended here because a religious discussion. I have learned to avoid that matter, I just avoid the radical freaks.
My family is not religious neither, uncommon, in a religious environment, but blasphemy is looked down; not because of that god itself in whom they do not believe, but because is considered a lack of respect of other people's beliefs. Religion maintains some people busy, and as long as nobody tries to force this to me, I am fine with it

Are any of you in this situation?
For me, I am the -ONLY- agnostic in my entire Christian family. Whenever I am around my family I got nothing to say.
Also, does anybody feel that when they're having a conversation with a Christian, does it seem some what 'fake' to you? i.e., awkward laughs, restricted to what you should say, etc.
If you have ever experience this type of stuff, please feel free to share it.
NOTE: The purpose of this thread is NOT to change someone's opinion, but to discuss how to deal with situations like this. You get the drill.
