How to deal with reallyy religious and JB crays?

I kinda hang with these people at school and they're honestly the only people I can get along with only cuz of dance. here's the thing they're Christian and I'm not, normally I really don't care about the whole religion crap thing. but they turned out to be really religious as in they'll carry the bible around, read it around me or read it out loud around me, post FB statuses about the bible and Christ. I want to tell them it makes me feel really uncomfortable, and kinda pressured. I really don't want to hurt their feelings either. And the teachers won't let me sit alone and if i sit with other people they bully me or throw food at me or in my hair. So I basically have to sit with them. And one of them are really obsessed with JB and I really hate his music. Whenever I kinda make a face or kinda twitch (I do that when I'm annoyed) she'll get all up in my face and tells me to go die, I'm used to people saying that but it hurts honestly. Also I have a bad temper that at times I can get into fights but I really don't want to. Can someone please tell me how to deal with this WITHOUT hurting anyone or at least make them get the hint?

I don't see the problem with having religious friends. I am a very religious person and my friends who aren't even Christian like I am still don't have a problem with me. I think you need to just calm down and let them do their thing. I wish I could've had friends like that and still do. Half of my friends have a criminal record and are heading nowhere in life. You just need to appreciate your friends. However for the Justin Bieber fan you could just say your not that into his music and maybe try to find other things to talk about.

I guess it's just that it makes me feel really uncomfortable and they'll kinda look at me and I feel pressured. And honestly the JB fan and I have zero in common, I've tried but it's just not working out.

Is there any other music that maybe you're both into?

Nope. I'm really into heavy metal, and she's really into the girl? I mean guy, JB. She loves pink, and yellow. I like black and blue. She's already slept with a guy willingly (we're only 14), I don't even look at guys. She hates sports, I love them.

Hang in there. School is rough, but it calms down eventually. Just wait for that person who will comfort you no matter what.

Well, if you are tired of their facebook updates about religion, then unsubscribe from them (though as a Christian myself, I know that the other person is making these posts in people's best interest) and the JB person... Just don't make eye contact with them in the hallway.

Try changing the subject when they speak of JB. Let them know what you like better than JB.
When it comes to the religious: just make sure they are not JW(Jehovah Witnesses) .check out their bibles!
In the front it should say Watchtower or mention Jehovah a lot(a lot).
Bring your own Bible- get the one that is a NIV.. Thats an understandable translation!(i like the NIrV ) that r stands for ( reader/ easier to understand). Get you some Bible tabs that help you find the right book within the Bible) Then compare notes!
And smile a lot- that will win friends easier!

As for the Christians, listen to what they say. Christianity is a very difficult path to walk, but it is all worth it. And I don't see why you would feel pressured when you hear about a God who came to earth and died for you. As for the belieber, it's really not a big deal, and there is no reason for her to blow up if you don't like his music. I suggest not stating your opinion on his music.
