I married an agnostic woman who came from a family of fundamentalist Christians (lapsed Catholics - the worst kind IMO). We were married in the town hall by the Deputy Mayor. Their chagrin was effectively disguised for decades, but I did manage to bear up well to the tedium of being in the presence of my parents-in-law. They simply assumed that I would eventually be "saved". The stalemate continued until their deaths.

Now, if my in-laws were fundamentalist Muslims, the disparity of viewpoints would have been dealt with immediately. My head would have been removed from my shoulders. No point in argument.

Live and let die.
