"How is it that shenanigans like this can happen in a country that was formed on freedom of religion? It's ridiculous, in my opinion. As much as I love a good religious debate, he doesn't sound like someone that would be fun to cross…"

"So many good options here. I like to debate, so I'd probably tell him that I'd be down to let him try and convert me to his religion, and obliterate him with facts and knowledge.    However, if you're not one to debate, I…"

"I would give him a choice: Don't mention my lack of belief again. OR I go to HR an make things real messy for you.   If the above two aren't acceptable tell him your willing to resolve the issue outside in the parking lot AFTER work."

"This is my first post here. I have had to deal with something like this not too long ago. I work for a municipality in the bible belt. I have been an atheist since the age 15 and it has been difficult to deal with when you have a church on literally…"

"If he's not much of a religious person himself, your fiancee could call him on that. Ask him how he thinks he will be judged if he claims to be a Muslim but doesn't live it (which are more wrongs than he can claim your fiancee did). And…"

"Sounds like this guy is incredibly insecure.  I would sometimes bother some of the guys I worked with about not believing and it's something I am not proud of, but I never went as far as messing with peoples' lives.  That is…"

"Your fiance is lucky to have such protection.   Questioning your own sanity is proof of your sanity."

"Thanks Stephen. I really appreciate that. It's hard some days, you know? You feel like you're either completely nuts or the only sane person in a world of crazies. I guess I just don't want my fiance to have to deal with that any more…"

"Hope it works out for you and him where there is comfort.   Its very hard to feel like we need to defend a position of nonbelief.   Sadly it should be the other way around."

"Hi Jenn - I know, RIGHT? This guy is getting on my fiance's nerves and, by extension, mine. He needs to do his job while he's on the clock and not bother my fiance about his nonbelief all day. Barring that, wouldn't anything be more…"

"Hi Stephen -   Thanks for your reply. I guess my post wasn't clear about some of this, and I apologize. My fiance wanted me to mention that he doesn't have an issue with discussing his atheism as such. He actually really likes debate…"

"It could be if they are that non devoted that his questions maybe related to his own insecurity of belief. Answering his questions if you can tolerate them might help him on a personal level to rectify his own questions. If your not comfortable…"

Work and atheism dilemma

My fiance and I are both atheists. Recently, he had a discussion at work about religion, and admitted he was an atheist. Most of his coworkers are okay with it, one is teasing him about it (they're friends; it's what they do), but the last one is being an absolute arsehole. For the last two full days, this kid, whom I have dubbed "Nitwit" so that this post doesn't contain TOO many swears, has been harassing my fiance about his religion. "Why don't you believe in god?", "How do you not believe…See More
