If you were raised agnostic, atheist, or just believing in what you want to believe, have you ever had family members who are convinced you're going to Hell and your friends who are gay/unmarried but with a kid/different than what was normal decades ago are too?

As I mentioned in another post, one of the grandparents I'm staying with is religious. She wasn't bad about it at first but now she's using every viable opportunity to shove God/Christianity down my throat. I tuned her out at first but I couldn't today. I asked her to stop and she said she had to because no one else had. She said my parents screwed up raising me and now that I'm eighteen, I have a choice and I'm making the wrong one. She told me I'm going to Hell and it doesn't bother me because I'm not even sure if I believe in Heaven and Hell. She also told me my gay friends are going to Hell, which pissed me off because they're some of the most amazing people I've ever met and she has no right to say something like that just because of their orientation. I'm mentioned on three of the five prayer lists she has that are right above me. 

I'd like to have a good relationship with her and we do, as long as we're talking or doing anything that doesn't turn into a religion talk.

What do I do? What can I do?
