Why Dallas? Have you considered West Coast, like SF, LA, etc. You can be a better fit there..

To the OP, if someone asks what church you attend, which is an odd question, just ask them why or tell them you don't have one. If it seems to upset them for whatever reason, just throw out the name of one of the many megachurches in the area. Most people really don't care. They attend church to be seen, gossip or as part of a routine.

Same with politics. Those that freely claim to be Republican or Democrat like its a badge of honor usually can't tell you why. In fact, if you remove the "R" and "D" in front candidates name on a ballot and a lot of people would be lost. When politics comes up and someone wants to argue a side instead of a person/issue, I tell people only an idiot votes party line. There are (sadly few) good candidates on each side and (sadly many) crooks on each side. Usually politics only comes up when someone wants to make a passing statement. Very few people are interested in actually having a discussion.

Good thing about both those types of people, they aren't someone you would want to hang out with anyway so take it as a gift if/when you run across one. If someone is going to judge you, be polite and move on.
I'm not nor ever have been religious. My parents weren't either, so I didn't even grow up in it.

I don't like the democrats trying to play Santa Claus. Free **** for everyone! No work involved! We'll make those rich people pay for it!

I have been living in the DFW Suburbs for years. It's mostly fine no matter what you are, given all the transplants in the area.. But I would say it is not uncommon to come across weird situations with religion and politics. But it appears things are shaking out. Looks like even Frisco will legalize liquor stores now.

Absolute nonsense. Would love to see any sort of public record of this arrest for cursing in Galveston that is "always" happening.

And by the way, in 2012 Obama won Pinellas county Fla by .09%, he won Dallas county by 16%.

But tell that to a Texan! And no, I am not making this up. That sets the tone for what you are going to encounter.

What you're seeking is rapidly disappearing in this country, but we DID discover St. Pete, Florida recently, and will be moving there next month. The vibe is friendly and liberal, and it was just so wonderful being around people that shared our outlook. I can't even tell you how nice it was to encounter this when I recently went there to ck the place out. It actually brought tears to my eyes, because we have been living in areas that have just not supported our lives, and that is harmful to one's health both mentally and spiritually. I had given up hope of finding something like this on our budget, but I never gave up looking.
