would you?
for friends, would you still be friends even if the person is kind and you wouldn't have known unless they told you


would you date a person who wants to marry in their religion and it is important to them, the one thing they will not give up in a relationship, but they will sacrifice anything else

I have respect for religious people, unless they're too radical to align with my tastes (Really the only thing I consider radical is being for sodomy laws or what China is pulling.) or hypocrites. I dislike hypocrites. Religion doesn't matter to me, although I'd be lying if I said I'll be a dedicated part of your religion. I guess I would be up for conversion as long as it didn't ask too much of me. That and they have to believe in Science. I only ask that you don't believe the Earth was created 6k years ago.

I know there was a thread about this.. but it most have been closed XP
oh well would it matter so long they aren't crazy or possive about it or it could give character and make them more "likeable".

I don't care. Just don't ask me to go to church with you lol, or don't start talking about it seriously to me, because I'll just laugh at you, and I have before.

In a relationship, I don't know. I haven't been in a relationship where religion was such a huge part of the actual relationship, and I hope it never will, but if I had to because I actually love someone....... I'll try my hardest, but I can't promise anything.

One of my lady friends is Christian (and no, not the kind that horribly represent it thankfully) and my best friend is Athiest so there's no issue for me being friends with someone because of their views.

Relationship wise? Wouldn't matter because I don't do relationships. I guess for the sake of answering the question though, so long as it isn't pushed onto me I probably wouldn't care.

My gaming group has a Muslim, a Catholic, a Southern Baptist, and an Atheist ......

My wife was Wiccan for many, many year.

Yes I would be friends with them

As for relationships, as long as their religion isn't too different from my own beliefs then I would be fine with it

Some of my closest gaming / online buddies are religious. One is Catholic from the US, another a Muslim living in Egypt, and naturally a few Christians. I know plenty of atheists, agnostics, and even one pantheist. I'm not particularly religious, and it doesn't matter to me. None of them are radical or intolerant.

I can date someone like that, but I could never be with a person so enrapt by their religion that it affects their opinions on homosexuality, equality, etc.

I would not date date someone that does not belong to my religion.
Catholicism is a very important part of my life.

I dont mind being friends with non Catholics though.

I am friend with religious people yes.

Now dating would be a fickle beast. I will never go to church with you, and if I was to have kids... No parent would intervene. The kid would get to choose for himself or herself if they want to believe in god or not. Indoctrinating a kid into religion is wrong. If they can accept both of these, then I would date them.

If religion were true, its followers would not try to bludgeon their young into an artificial conformity; but would merely insist on their unbending quest for truth, irrespective of artificial backgrounds or practical consequences.

I've been friends with religious people and they've been perfectly nice. As for a relationship? I guess it depends on how prevalent the individual would make their religion a part of the relationship.

I have no issue with people of religion as long as they aren't trying to shove their religion down my throat and convince me of what theirs believes..

I am friends of people from multiple religions, not just Christian religions either, and with people who are various types of atheists. I have dated several types of Christians and at least one Jew, one Buddhist, one Wicca, and one atheist. However, I would not proceed to serious dating or consider marriage with anyone who was not a member of my church.
