good god no

The one major thing you have to remember...is that the man next to you is your brother, and you'd damn well better treat each other that way because if you don't, then we blow the whole thing, but we've got it right there.

No, I personally wouldn;t. Too many religious people have an external locus of control and as a bystander it's embarrassing to me.

Dating casually yes, but I can't see myself in a life parnership with someone who holds completely different views than me on important existential questions

I've thought about this a lot since I first saw this thread and despite my initial reaction of "absolutely not," I've come to the conclusion that it depends -- like so many other things in life.

Mostly it depends on the person's attitude. If they're really pushy or holier-than-thou about it, absolutely not. If many of their views directly contradict mine then no. The particular religion matters too; I'd never bother with a Mormon because I grew up with them and I know they'd expect me to re-convert eventually. But if someone was really casual and nonchalant about it, or only participated because of their family or heritage or something, then maybe. But they'd have to be a really good fit in other areas.

Generally I feel that religion is just one of those really personal things which is particularly important to many individuals, and would almost certainly cause problems eventually. I'd be okay with that since I never want to get married so the eventual split would be easier, but if I were of the mindset for marriage I'd never risk it with a religious person because my beliefs and worldviews would almost certainly offend them deeply at some point. And I would absolutely refuse to change for someone else, because I've tried it before and it just didn't work.

I like some religions, despite not believing in them. Quakers, baha'i, unitarians... it wouldn't even be an issue with them since they're not dogmatic and they believe in critical thinking. With someone of a more dogmatic religion, it'd be a challenge but I'd probably give it a try unless they had particularly distasteful or nauseating beliefs (like prosperity gospel types or bigots).

I remember this one lady I was with for a little while that I'd met in hospital - she was Catholic too. She wasn't a pain about it - one time when we were in the city she said she wanted to go into this church to light a candle. I thought that was really nice at the time tbh.

And actually I have been known to go and sit in that same church. It's peaceful.

You need a good Muslim to straighten you out.

Date long term probably not. But just went out on a few dates with a Christian woman. She went to a private Christian school. Took 4 dates for you us to get romantic. But when we did it was really worth it. Religious women can be very fun when they let there hair down! lol

It depends. If their spirituality gets in the way, as in they have strict rules about going to church, repenting, "accepting jaysus".. which is a conundrum because isn't belief in God already an acceptance of Jesus? Or over-reliance on placing things on just God alone (wouldn't he already have a lot to handle) aka a blinder faith than usual..then maybe. I don't mind though because I'd probably just point it out and say whether thats practical or kot. I dunno. If their spirituality allows for flexibility, then ok. If their answer to my problems is simplistic, I might think twice and become the devil's advocate so to speak. Belief isn't as clear as people make it to be. Then again, its kind of none of my beeswax.

It's strange how people treat religious folks these days. I would date a religious person, sure. They aren't lepers. Most religious folk I know aren't fundamentalists obsessing about killing other people for bible transgressions. Some of y'all act like if you believe in god you must be a rapist, pedophile, misogynist, or just a general scumbag. You also betray an ignorance of something you criticize. I find it a bit funny. Everybody whining about divisions in society and treating others on a different scale, and ****ers who like to say their hail marys are like handicapped folks. But i guess organized religion is responsible for every ill in the world.
