I know that this is not about Des Moines proper but I was in Dubuque some years ago and all I can say is what a great bunch of people!

Christian music playing everywhere? Like, loud and in the streets?

Umm, what about Humanists, atheists, and agnostics? Are they accepted in Des Moines and surrounding communities? Is it okay to be out and proud about being a non-believer? Is there tolerance of both the religious and non-religious?

Loud Christian music played everywhere you go happens once a year almost everywhere in the United States from Thanksgiving (or earlier) until the new year. You can't escape it.

As a non believer, I just have to endure it and wait for January to come so it will be over!

No, Christian music is not playing everywhere. I suppose there's probably some playing in the Christian bookstore in Ankeny, but I haven't heard any music outside lately.

I guess I could take my guitar out on the porch and play something for you . . .

Glad to hear people love it here but having been here since late last year- I hate it. I've been eagerly planning my exit once my lease expires.

So whatever it is you don't like about where you live in Iowa applies to the entire state??? Is that fair?

Well I live in Des Moines. Not saying it applies to the entire state but I thought the discussion was pertaining to Des Moines in particular...

Get out, make friends, and live a little!
(From what you indicated in other posts... that seems to be the issue and it's always hard moving somewhere new.)
