I would feel exactly the same if someone introduced herself at a conference by saying, "Hi, I'm Jennifer with Aetna. Don't you just wish Christians would stop making such a big deal of Easter?"
    Yes, but you're polite.

    Most atheists, vegans and crossfitters are not - and they are on a mission to sneer.

I'd never diss a Hindu or Buddhist over whatever they do about food (nor should anyone). Laughing or mocking a religious person at work is just as bad as overhearing somebody spreading the Gospel when you don't want to hear it.

    I've never thought the workplace was the correct place for evangelism (of any kind) but silent prayer or modest religious images (of whatever religion) seem okay to me.

    People don't stop being whatever they are when the keycard goes in the reader.
    I honestly have no problem with expression of one's beliefs. It's good to know what is important to people. I object to the abject rudeness of many people who want to be "in your face" about it.

    Pffft. You're just pissed off because those of us with COVID19 are able to turn over a truck tire 148 times and you can only make it 136.

    Leftists have unquestionably demonstrated their hatred for due process, and Democrats have undeniably obstructed justice for, and thoroughly victim-shamed and smeared, Karen Monahan.

    An atheist, a vegan, and a crossfitter walk into a bar. I only know because they told everybody within two minutes.

    I shoot with my mind.
