Exactly. Don't teach them to be atheists. Just teach them how to use critical thinking.

Tell her that you appreciate her good intentions, but you are not a believer and find such items inappropriate. Escalate to saying they're offensive, if necessary. If she doesn't take the hint, refuse the items or throw them out right away. If that doesn't work, I'd have a little fun with her, and send her stuff she'd find offensive - escalate to really offensive if necessary!

So how do you handle the "insistent ones" esp around this time of year?

Three German Shepherds, and, I can get downright rude.

I summarily delete these people from my FaceBook and from my life.

It's not working out great for me, relationship-wise.

But if you're looking for honesty, there it is.
