I would, but I would assume we may run into many problems. I would have to hope my dedication to my religion wouldn't offend the person in any way.

Side: Sure, I don't care

Me personally, I don't care as long as the particular individual is kind, friendly, and accepting.

Side: Sure, I don't care

So long as they are reasonable enough to have legitimate conversations about it with me, not ignore it or not even consider other options. That's not to say I'd want to convert them or anything, but I like discussion too much xD

But there are so many other factors. If I were to find someone who I truly liked who was willing to date me, there is no inherent reason why it wouldn't work out, as far as I can see.

Insofar that I believe in meaningful one night stands, yes I would. Indeed I would probably see them more than once if they were looking for ''some fun''. It's after the first month or so when they become inquisitive and start asking questions like, what's your name, where do you live that I clear off pretty god damned quickly. Actually, I'm living proof that mixed marriages definitely work, I'm a human being and my wife is a Klingon.

I would easily and that there is nothing wrong with having a different religion than your partner. Sure there may be some problems in the relationship and that could easily be worked out. Religion is not the only thing to look at a person there is many other things that will make you forget about the person's religion and look at the things that you guys have in common.

I am non-religious and was married to my late husband for over twenty years and he was a Catholic. It wasn't a problem.

Really in the modern world our social barriers shouldn't bar us from interacting and engaging into relationships

When your ideas and beliefs are countered by your dates,it's the most annoyin' and personally i feel it leads to mental wreck and disturbance

I tried and it always failed, our way of thinking is to different our ideology just don't mesh and in the end it just never works, at least that's how it is for me.

If you can make it work more power to you.

As a human would you date a monkey? A monkey is less evolved intellectually, other then throwing shit at each other on a drunken night what would you have in common with a religious person as an atheist?

As for different beliefs but both delusional theist ....well tomato, tomatoes both smelling like shit just different Oder's.

The overwhelming majority of relationships don't work out. We each only get a maximum of one relationship that works out for us, and that only because we die before the relationship ends.

If you aren't now in a permanent relationship, you're looking at a correlation in some cases, but not necessarily a causal factor. These are obstacles that can and are overcome- I know of two elderly married Catholic ladies that work at the daycare my son is in. One of them is married to an atheist, the other to a Jew. Doesn't seem to hold any of them back.

I imagine the issues with these relationships of yours had more subtle problems that you are attributing to religion.

I would also throw out there that it is highly unlikely that you've dated a statistically significant sample of individuals with differing religious beliefs.

I would prefer not to. I find its difficult to get along with a Christian what so ever let alone date one. Ewwww.

The funny part is that you were looking not at a Christian, but a mirror when you said Ewww.

Well would you,yeah there are some open-minds who prefer to cast aside all social,regional barriers and go on a date but certainly that won't be anything of a date for the two would never come to anything mutual

Side: No, I cant get along with them

I could never date a gay guy who belonged to any of the mainstream religions. I have no tolerance towards others gays who adhere to belief systems that so clearly against us. Any gay that is a believes in that crap is no true prideful gay. I hate knit-your-own birkenstock cherry pickers who ignore all of the crap in these awful texts that is against them.

There are people out there who are Christian, in that they believe in the divinity of Christ, but at the same time do not believe in the legitimacy of much what was written by the disciples. Since Jesus did not speak out against homosexuality, what would be wrong with someone holding that belief system, since there wouldn't be anything they are particularly "ignoring"?

Side: Sure, I don't care

Jesus spoke about the validity of the teachings that came before him, which includes what it says in the Old Testament about killing gays. Also the fact is most mainstream Christian organizations are the ones rallying against gay rights so it upsets me to see my kindred spirits joining their side.

The only good thing about being in a relationship with a Christian is the fact that dumb guys can be pretty cute.

What is wrong with agreeing with the positive values of a religious belief if you do not adhere to the abhorrent parts of that religion? Shouldn't that be admired, not shamed?

Side: Sure, I don't care

Because it's dumb to just pick and choose between the bits that are against the way you live your life. It's dumb to associate yourself with the enemy. It is dumb to look for advice in a religious teacher who doesn't agree with what you are.

Nope, because as a Christian I'm not supposed to marry anyone or date someone that is of a different belief than me.

Actually that is wrong. It is okay to date someone of a different religion than you, what you are saying is that its wrong to talk to someone who isn't the same belief as you. But if that's so, how does a non-Christian become a Christian if a Christian won't talk to them? You are supposed to treat a non Christian the same as you would any other person.

Different religious views is what for society and making perspectives diverse, but if I end up living with this person, no way I will be able to tolerate the differences. I prefer women with little to no religious beliefs.
