There is actually room to out-Christian the Christians. Most don't have a clue what is written in Matt 5-7; the Sermon on the mount - yet it's the core of Christianity. Memorize it.

It says that Christians are supposed to love and pray for those who persecute and despitefully use them. Notice how you are not persecuting them or using them, yet you feel persecuted by them. I'm sure you can bring that up, somehow.

You are supposed to pray in secret (Matt 6:6). If they ask you to a prayer meeting, then whip that one out.

You are supposed to love your religious enemies. The reason you feel scared, is that you are surrounded by Church bigots that Christ abhorred. The Christian church is a lot like the Jewish establishment that Jesus was disemboweling, so there is plenty of room to point out errors they are making.

[15] Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
[16] Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
[17] Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
[18] A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
[19] Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
[20] Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
