Accept in what way?

I've never have had a problem. Other than the "REPENT!" people downtown, most are respectful. Then again, I grew up in a largely secular state and town. Even most fundamentalists 'round here are resigned to the fact that plenty (most?) people aren't practicing Christians, and many aren't even Christians/religious at all.

Of course, a lot of them don't "accept" that in that they condone it. But the most abuse I've gotten is a kid saying "you're an atheist?" in mocking disbelief when I was like 13 (not sure why I claimed to be an atheist when I was 13, but I remember that pretty clearly). He was kind of generally annoying though.
