Oh come. This guy hasn't posted in 3 years, did you check his history? So you make a comment on a thread that hasn't been posted on in 5 years and comment about a poster who hasn't posted in 3 years. You're hunting and you came out looking a little on the petty side. Actually, it makes you look a little foolish.

Who am I? Ask the Nun.

1st you must know what the Gospel is... Google: Good person Test. 2nd that person either is a Christian or is not a Christian. Maybe you define open-minded and close- minded differently...but there was no-one more close minded when Jesus said John 14:6.. 2 Cor. 6:14. Matthew 13:24...and... Matthew 7:15.

Do you have videotape or any other proof Jesus said these things or any other quotes from Jesus or his buddies?
Oh, I forgot. Religion is blindly believing anything and everything that's told to you without questioning any of it or verifying anything.

Depends on the couple.
My mother is a very devout Catholic. My dad is Agnostic.
They have been married for 35 years, but what makes it work is that my mother has never forced him to read the bible with her or go to church with her. My dad doesn't make fun of her for believing or call her dumb for putting faith first before science. They have their own opinions, but neither has ever forced one on the other. Respect is the ingredient.

That's great! As they say, nothing costs as little and is valued as highly as simple politeness.

It's a shame EVERYONE doesn't have this attitude towards EVERYONE ELSE.

I think that's easier for a guy, because the 'classical' woman will not be scientifically minded anyway (emotion, feelings trumping first), in general. Guys tend to be used accustomed to that. Many people can be devout Xian and have it personal, which doesn't get in the way. I think when it conflicts with real-life issues, that's where it can. But if it doesn't, it doesn't. One of the problems though is that with many devout people it isn't just personal -- that certainly will get in the way and make them incompatible.

Under what circumstances should one carry on a relationship? That is the question I currently find myself pending.

Let's assume you meet a great and attractive person and they feel attraction for you too. Then as you get to know them more, they turn out to be a religious nut (let's use Christianity as an example) and take a completely literal interpretation of the Bible.

So here's the question: If the other person (me in this case) is a liberal, open-minded person that shies away from organized religion, is the relationship worth pursuing?


There is no such thing as an open-minded liberal. They are just as doctrinaire as Christianity. The two are a perfect match.

Oh look, it sounds just as dumb both ways.

Honestly, religious or not.. why would you debate pursuing a relationship with someone you consider a NUT?

Liberalism is Christianity minus the invisible man. Both serve the same purpose to control large numbers of slaves.
