I wouldn't have a problem hiring you at all. Christianity has nothing to do with a hard worker. I would rather see more Christians around, but it wouldn't even be a hint of an issue in the back of my mind.

I've actually been in the situation back when I was a diesel tech. 12 years ago? One of the guys I interviewed made it VERY clear what his beliefs were. I just groaned internally, because he was the better man for the job. I gave him the nod over the other guys and he was hired.

He tried to witness me or whatever you want to call it, non stop.

Of course there were lots of debates and he hated my choice of radio stations. He kept asking to listen to his christian station. I said no, not because it was christian, but because it was BORING! I wanted ROCK while I worked.

We eventually worked out a compromise so that he could listen to his station at certain times.

There were moments of regret for me, but overall, we made a productive team.

No and whoever would is stoOpid...

You should be hired/not hired based on merit alone, not your belief's...

Anonymous influence is the same as voting, right?
No, I wouldn't vote for atheist because they wouldn't support our beliefs and would try or allow other to take out of more things in our soceity.

I agree with Gixxer completely on that topic. There ARE christians in office, and are already taking things away from us.

Haha, yeah right.

After some of the discussions on MH, I believe there are a few here that if they could get away with it, they would keep me from being hired because i'm atheist.

Having said that, I mention it at work - but I AM NOT OFFENSIVE in the presentation. Usually it consists of an invitation to church, or an offer to pray for an individual if a situation warrants it. My company has a pretty good inclusion policy - we can have bible study at lunch, post church invites for activities, etc..

I think people are most offensive when they don't even realize it. No, mean no, right? Ask me once, Cool, no thanks. Ask me twice, I'll probably stare at you cross. Third time, that's harassment.

I wouldn't hold it against you

my boss [who is an athiest] hired me despite me being a christian, and it did come up in the interview because some of my work history is for the church

though as a former full time youth pastor, it was kind of a requirement for that job
