I honestly can not remember more than a half dozen times when I have been politely invited to a religious service in the last 10 years. No one has pushed. Religion is a VERY rare subject where I work. I do see some people wearing religious symbols, but that's just for them, not something that others have to kiss or anything like that.
I am really perplexed. Around here, religion is not a topic of discussion unless invited.
I guess if I was being pressured all the time by theists, I would feel a bit differently. As you can tell here, that's not the source of most of the pressure I am getting.
I don't go to booster functions or school board meetings, but otherwise, yes, all of the above.
The dealership doesn't really count though, as I worked there. The odds of it happening at a dealership now would be extremely low.
It is very rare that they are pushy. Pressured is not the word I would use.
