What would be some areas around Charlotte where religion is less of a topic and where the community feel is not so heavily revolved around the church?

Satanville... bout 15 mins round the bend.


Seriously - less of a topic? I have never seen an area in Charlotte where it is super involved? Unless you live next to a church.

I was more thinking of areas outside Charlotte itself, aka the suburbs and exurbs. Which exurbs or suburbs would be both affordable and an area where non-religious people and their children would be welcomed with open arms regardless of their non-faith.

Do you work from home, so that commuting isn't a factor?

Commuting is a factor, yes. So within, say, a 40 mins commute of Charlotte.

Look near the synagogues.

I have lived in Charlotte for the last 6 years and I have never been asked what church I go to. I have never had someone bring up church or try to recruit me to go to a person's church.

I think you will be welcome everywhere, however perhaps Ballantyne area where there are a lot of newcomers from the North would be best. Not that northerners are not religious but they are usually of the less evangelical kind.

we don't go to church and no one bothers us about it, not do I care what others do. You can find other things in common with people who go to church.

Ballantyne, Fort Mill.

We live in Fort Mill and have families from all walks of life in our neighborhood including many from India.

My son's school has a 7% "Asian" population which at his school means Indian.

People mention church offhandedly but not in a preachy way. Such as, "hey let's get together on Sunday. I have church til noon but we can meet at one." kind of thing. I know my neighbors go to church but have no clue as to which one.

40 minutes doesn't get you to the exurbs. Depending on where you would be commuting to, in Charlotte, is how far out you can get. You'll get further out on the west side. There are fewer traffic problems west of Charlotte.
