Sure. They already think that I can not be moral as an atheist so why not. I would probably subtly mock and ridicule them like Joel Osteen does:

Hmmm...

I know my husband wouldn't. He worked for a company and they had morning prayers. He wouldn't participate in them. So they got rid of him. Oh well.

As for me? I'm in the Bible Belt looking for a job. I'm not publishing my atheism. I might even hide it for a few years (unless I work for the employer I do not want to end up with, then fuck it, they can't discriminate).

Far cry from having to hide your belief to do an honest job, and lying to scam people out of money.
I'd do the former but not the latter. Just not in my nature. I want my energy to go to good. What I get paid for it is less important to me.

Is that like pretending to sing for money?

There is a difference between faking it to keep your job and faking it because you want to fleece people.

Of course there is. They're both still pretending to be a Christian for money. Just one isn't trying to steal from people

I consider it relieving my flock of the temptation of wealth. Something about rich men and camels and heaven which I don't want any further details since I'm pretty sure there's a porn flick out there.

Would I pretend to be Christian for money?

Depends on how much money.

A small amount, gained by attending church and keeping family happy. Perhaps.

A large amount, gained through completely illegitimate means (like doing what pat Robertson does! Nope never. I'd hate myself.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

I'd donate it all to BlackLivesMatter so they would have proper comparable armament to KILL WHITEY!
