What do you say when asked what church you attend? She, a lifelong Atheist Chinese and I, a former Christian from the Midwest, have assumed that we we probably need to join some church in order to have any shot at a normal social life.Well, since I enjoy a good debate, I don't hesitate to say that I no longer attend any church, and don't wish too. Most people will leave it at that, and those that press get a nice discussion if they choose.It seems to be much less of a problem than it was 7 years ago when I first got here, but maybe I'm just not as sensitive to it.You won't need to join a church to have a social life. There is a large population of Chinese in the area, most of whom are associated with UAB. It's also a large enough city that you can find many people with your same interests, and your religious affiliation or lack thereof won't matter so much. I really wouldn't worry about it too much. Most of the time the people in Birmingham seem the same as every other city I've lived in.
