I was subject to a lot of ridicule from self-proclaimed free-thinking friends when I became a Christian. I imagine this happens to an awful lot of people, given how atheists on this forum behave and their hypocritical world-views. How did you overcome the ridicule and hate?

This. I'd also hesitate to cal out all atheists, the majority of whom seem like pretty respectful people. The problem is with the evangelical atheists who often populate forums like this. They're the kind of people who if you wished them luck on an exam would look at you condescendingly and tell you that luck isn't real.

Honestly, religion just isn't something worth discussing with some people. Find better friends

For the record, I've never been an atheist but I have gone through several periods of intense religious doubt. The friends on either side I've discussed this with never mocked me but were always open and willing to listen...because they weren't condescending douchebags.
