Since the Pit is filled with atheists, I thought I'd get interesting feedback.

Basically, what do you guys think about dating someone without the same religious beliefs as you? Do you oppose it? To what extent will you tolerate different religious beliefs? What are your experiences with religion and relationships?

I personally am just totally indifferent to god or religion or anything of those things, and I don't define myself as anything. I have dated 2 girls who weren't religious, and the rest were Christian. Obviously with the 2 girls who weren't religious it wasn't a problem. Things never got serious with the christian girls, but they did ask me what my religious beliefs were, and I always dread when that conversation comes up, as I basically know whatever I say will disappoint them unless I lie (which I try not to do).

A person I work with had a serious relationship with a muslim girl, and things probably would have worked out fine, but her family hated the fact that he wasn't muslim.

My stance is that I don't care what the girl's beliefs are, since it's impossible to meet someone with opinions 100% identical to yours. But I am more hesitant to date a girl who is muslim or hindu, as opposed to christian. It seems like christians usually aren't very devout at all in the U.S.

I've thought about it recently with one girl I met, but in the end I decided that it would just not work out with someone who actually believes in a Biblical Rapture.
#5
I've never been with a girl who wasn't an atheist, so I dunno. One or two of my friends are "Christians". And by that I mean, they wear crosses on necklaces and pull the "no sex before marriage" card when and where it suits them.
One of my ex's was obsessed with pagan rituals and wiccan shit which...is kinda a bit more cool than mainstream religion...but she just pissed me off with it.
#6
Atheist girls is what dis niga likes, but I haven't met a girl I would want to be in a long term relationship with anyway, religious or otherwise, so it's a null point

If I just want to get her bucked though, I couldn't give less of a shit what magical creature she believes in

I've dated Christians, Atheists, Agnostics, and a Buddhist. It honestly isn't that important.

I'm an Atheist, myself.

As long as her religion doesn't make her believe stupid bullshit, like that gay people are evil, and as long as she's not super religious, I don't care. I would only date atheist chicks, but they're hard to come by.

My girl is more religious than I.

I would never really say I'm agnostic around her, but basically I am. Its cool though, she supports abortion, premarital sex (if she didn't this relationship would have never started lol), and gay marriage, and is the nicest person I've ever met. It doesn't affect anything much, oh except sometimes she says things like "It's God's way of showing...". Which sometimes I want to say "How do you know that?", but I don't because I respect her beliefs and there's no point in giving her shit about it or starting an argument. She's really open to other religions and stuff, she's just Christian and so is her family.

Really though, I need a girl who is still into religion and innocent. I'm so negative and jaded, I need a girl who is innocent, naive, and bubbly to balance me out. Can't have two pseudo-intellectual, agnostic, philosophy majors in a relationship.

Religious beliefs don't matter to me. I consider myself a Catholic but I really don't believe in churches and I've never read the bible. That's just my opinion though.

Political allegiance is more of a detractant to me than religious view (and I'm talking moderates, no zealots allowed on thewho65). Even that I can get over, it just irks me a bit more immediately.

As true as that statement is, that kind of hurt.

Relationships like that could work, but someone has to compromise. It's the truth. It doesn't matter who does it. It doesn't matter what religion (or lack of) the persons in question are, one has to compromise while the other keeps a part of their beliefs.

In short: The one who compromises will eventually be miserable, and I would suspect that would lead to the downfall of the relationship.

The teachings of Jesus Christ have led to literally thousands of different interpretations of some pretty vague readings. I could name at least 20 different major denominations of Christianity off the top of my head, each with a very different interpretation of Jesus's teachings. Theologians, world leaders, and incredibly intelligent people have debated these different interpretations for literally thousands of years, and have never reached a consensus on what half of Jesus's "teachings" actually were.

But I suppose you are smarter than all that, and you've managed to figure it out yourself

Holy shit! An entire religion's ideology can be found in the dictionary! If you knew anything about the protestant reform, you would realize people can do whatever the fuck they want and call themselves Christian.

There's not THAT many interpretations out there. It's actually quite simple. Interpret it literally with what Greek text's give us. All these other interpretations come from Allegorical method's which leave scripture vague and misleading.

You'd be surprised, mate. I feel like every person I've ever talked to has a slightly different view on what Christian ideals entail, and almost every one of them thinks theirs is the correct one. It isn't so difficult to believe.

I would advise sticking much closer to the Aramaic Gospels as opposed to the Greek/Latin New Testament. Not that Acts-Revelations is bad, not at all, but because the Gospels are much clearer because they are about those teachings solely.

Of course I prefer Atheist girls, but that is just natural since it matches my beliefs. But my ex was a "go to youthgroup every week" kind of Christian and it wasn't an issue at all. She had her beliefs, and I had mine, it wasn't a topic of discussion.

I was still shocked when she said she is 100% certain there is no life outside Earth because the Bible made no mention of it.

From the poll results, I can say the Pit is pretty tolerant of others.
Good for you guys.

I personally don't care about beliefs as long as they don't interrupt my schedule.
I once dated a Christian girl with an extremely religious Ecuadorian father.
She went to church every Sunday with her father. When we started dating, it became less frequent for her. I didn't do anything with her on Sundays because I hoped she went to church. It was the only father-daughter time she got (her parents were separated).
I didn't really care about the religion. The relationship still worked.
