3. I'm non-confrontational

when the issue is strictly on the spiritual aspects of belief, which do not pick my pocket and I see as doing no harm. When it veers into political territory, however, the gloves come off. I tend to beg off entirely when the subject is purely faith, as I consider it a highly personal topic, but I don't encounter that type of discussion very often. In my experience, most of those discussions wind up dispensing a lot of unsolicited advice on how people should live their lives, then continuing on to how government needs to get involved - no matter how pure the original intentions of those broaching the subject.
