As an aside to this, I for one know plenty of good, decent, "religious" 
people who are quite content to live their lives according to their own 
beliefs without insisting on forcing those beliefs on others. Of course, 
if you ask them, they'll talk about it with you, but they will not 
insist that you live your life a certain way simply because they are 
present. Just because your own experience includes interaction with a 
few overbearing religious people, please do not be so quick to judge 
what is, for the most part, a peace-loving community. Unfortunately it's 
usually the loud, overbearing, fire and brimstone kind of people who get 
all the religious publicity and misrepresent what most of the religious 
community stands for.
