Not too much hostility over here. Actually...I don't think there is any I can really identify. A good chunk of the family still practices Catholicism, which is fine. And even though I was baptized Catholic, they're pretty awesome about realizing everyone can make their own choice. They do still bring up religion sometimes, and I'm sure there will be some snags when it comes to baptizing my own kids...but I think as long as we have some sort of family gathering they'll be fine with it.
My dad and his family are FIERCELY religious. They're the type to "shun" a family member for leaving the church. It's sad, really, because it's their loss. At first my dad refused to attend my wedding unless it was changed to a Catholic wedding because it went against his morals. When I didn't change my plans, he finally decided later that it would be ok to attend as long as he didn't participate (how convenient). Sometimes it seems like they make this stuff up as they go. Anyway, I just stick to my guns and try to keep it civil, because giving in to their beliefs or flying off the handle only proves to them that they are right.
No problems from my family. My dad believes the same as I do, my mom believes in god but doesn't really practice any religion. Growing up we never went to church or did any thing related to religion. DH father makes some comments about it but it's not too bad. I don't come from an overly religious family, but I think there would be some family members who would have a problem with it but religion is not something that really comes up.
We don't talk about politics and religion in my family. Well, they do, but they're not receptive to anything I have to say so they always shush me with the "it's rude to talk about politics and religion" schpiel.
