You see, if you reject a Christian's advance, they will turn and walk away from you and never return to bother you again. If you reject a Muslim's advance, the Koran tells them you must be labeled an infidel and accordingly be eliminated by any means necessary. Usually by violent death. So, it's your choice. Do you want to live in a county in Mississippi consisting of mostly bible believing people, or.....would you like to deal with the alternative?
I've never had that problem with Muslims. I've lived in a highly populated Arab/Muslim area before back in college and never had those issues going into stores or seeing them on the street. Most were pretty friendly, smiled, and said hello. Their Holy Book says that, but I don't follow every word of my Holy Book, so maybe they just pick and choose. That's just my experience, though.

If you're not religious....fine. But the fact that you belittle those who are says a lot about your moral compass.

from the onset of reading the question, i took it to be judgmental, insulting, and degrading against those who have a different belief system. broad generalizations, statements phrased speaking for entire states, and sterotypes---who is closed minded and ignorant? w/ your attitude of superiority, you have much more to worry about than your twins being exposed to christianity. mind your manners, and teach them to your children. and, by the way, i was reared in chicago, i have lived in detroit, d.c., nyc, and several other eastern and northeastern cities. people, regardless of what you say, have feelings and desire respect, even in the north and northeast.

Thanks for the help.
Well my friend, I am from the Northeast (upstate NY) and I am a Christian and I think your attitude is disrespectful and arrogant and it is people like you that give Yankees a bad name. Whether you are a believer or not is your decision, but I will tell you this, there is a God in Heaven and a Hell for the lost. Your family deserves the spiritual leader that you do not have the courage to be.
