Would they like to coexist with theists, people who belong to religions and how?

And if yes, why -

It doesn't matter if they wish to or not, Jehovah will not allow any who oppose his true servants to live on this earth for ever, or even all that much longer.

Soon this earth will be returned to its original state of one religion and no other.

That's true, but they've got to be right sometime, and the way this world is headed it now definitely has to be soon if Jehovah wants this planet to be inhabitable at all.

Which of course he does or he would not have bothered having it created, or us to care for it.

Just depends on whether or not you want to miss out.

Well, we already do, very successfully. :D

With irreligion sitting anywhere between about 10% and 60% in the developed world, depending on where you live, virtually every atheist in the developed world has religious friends, family, classmates and workmates. Moreover, in highly religious societies such as the US, most atheists grew up in religious homes and lost or abandoned their faith after prolonged reflection (and worldwide, around 60-70% of atheists were formerly people of faith.) Perhaps in consequence, atheists tend to know more about religion than self-identified religious themselves. [http://articles.latimes.com...] Atheists have also adapted to religious environments in fairly nonconfrontational ways. For example, in the US, 65% of atheists say they talk to religious adherents about their nonbelief 'seldom' or 'never'. [http://usatoday30.usatoday.com...] Finally, atheists are known to have more tolerance over-all for free speech and dissent than the religious. [http://usatoday30.usatoday.com...]

So really the question is under what circumstance is it difficult for atheists to live with people of faith?

People of faith never seem to ask that, but they should.

And if yes, why
One obvious and sufficient reason: people atheists love, respect and depend on include people of faith.

Again, it'd be great if the religious realised that the reverse were also true. :p

(Sorry, that should have been: 60-70% of English-speaking atheists, based on a Web survey I found once. It'd be different in China.)

Why not ask yourself the question, would theists like to coexist with atheists?

Or, is that already a forgone conclusion?

JWs do coexist with atheists for the time being because they know that each has a right to believe what the wish at the moment.

However it is their bounden duty to try to educate all who either do not believe in God or who believe in the wrong one, or even the wrong version of the right one.

Hence I am on here, not to convert any, but to show them how you can convert yourselves should you choose to do so, and to lay the truth before all so that you can decide.

I am not here to stop you being unfair and unjust towards the God I serve, merely to point out that you are being like that, because you choose to deny the obvious evidence even exists, let alone look closely at it.

They say ignorance is bliss, which is why so many choose to wallow in it, but it will prove to be far from bliss when the time comes.

No-one ever said truth was easy.

P. S. I don't go onto dedicated Atheist sites or forums (fora?) and pester them like Atheists do on religious sites and forums like this.
