Here's a funny tale.
A new guy started at work about a month and a half ago. He and I would shoot the shit every day. About a week ago the conversation turned to religion. In that conversation I learned he's a Muslim and in the same talk he assumed I was a Christian. I corrected him and was about to tell him I am an atheist but something came over me and I decided to tell him I'm a Jew. He hasn't spoken to me in a week.
Ok. Maybe you don't think it's funny but think it's funny as fuck...

Unfortunately I'm sure you'd get the same reaction if you had told the truth.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Yeah. That's probably true.

It's all good man. It doesn't seem like there much more to say anyway.

I was in a similar situation. The Muslim chap I knew was very vocal and supported the Muslim brothers in their fight against the great white Satan blah blah......
As I live in the South of Ireland he expected me to say I was a Catholic. He was visibly shocked when I told him I was an atheist. He said that he was sorry for the fact that I was going to hell and if it came to the crunch and he had to "kill me" he would do it with great difficulty. Anyway that was a long time ago, and he headed back to mainland Europe. I wouldn't be surprised if he's in Syria or Iraq.

You may have dodged a bullet. Or should I say beheading...

RE: Here's a funny tale.
I did a little experiment. Once when a religious nut knocked on the door to sell their religion I told them I was Jewish. For some odd reason they don't know what to say. But I did. Oey- veh!

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
