104. Agree.

As I said in my other post, talking about religion at all used to be a bit of a taboo here, but it's much less so now. People occasionally do talk to me about the importance of church/God/Jesus/synagogue/Jewish laws in their lives, but they're not really expecting me to follow their beliefs. Recently I was in a taxi, where the driver was talking about Ramadan and what it meant to him and his beliefs about Muslims' duty to give to charity. He fairly clearly didn't expect me to convert to Islam; he was just talking about something important in his life. And people sometimes discuss their atheism, and e.g. how no good God could allow X to happen. I think that the OP's daughter handled the situation fine, and I don't think there was anything sinister in the woman's comments.
