Living here in the US, if you aren't religious, it seems you get looked down upon pretty much. Like you're lesser of a person, or you worship satan. lol What are some good ways to deal with the 'all american' conservative religious types of people, when they try to make you feel like an outcast?
leave them alone and tell them to leave you alone
but of cause that doesn't work in the schools and at work
they all gotta live together
sad how beliefs can cause you to harm another

its a human thing, if you are a certain type you become part in a society of that type, if you are different you are pushed aside because of complexities in relations.
the solution or at least suggested model solution would be as APSU said,
"leave them" and focus on how you can accomodate yourself in every situation. I am faced with the opposite, it is difficult to be a Muslim at times in London, but when you know that the others are ignorant and naive, you find yourself on a better path.
Essentially, don't get trapped in trying to justify what you believe in to such peoples all the time. Focus on your own thing.
