I think you could make it work if you were very flexible about it. I had a freind whose wife believed in the literal interpretation of the bible. She had a conversation with him about the world being created in seven days just after they were married. He said he controlled his emotions and just went with it, all along wanting to bust out laughing in disbelief, he realised she was being serious and was not being sarcastic. I think you have to respect your partners beliefs.

My wife was Jewish and I grew up Catholic. We never had any problem, of course neither of us were very serious about it.

Your best bet is to get out. Religion's one of those touchy topics that can really cause issues unless both of you are are on the same page. It doesn't necessarily mean having to follow the same religion, but if you have different views, both of you better be liberal about it.

I tried to find a man for my ladies cousin, she's fine in good shape, has money, nice job....she's all a man could want (her breasts aren't that big though)......great looking chick..... only thing.....

She's a religious nut...same thing....I mean she goes to two services on Sunday, Wednesday etc......

I don't have a problem with a woman having small breasts as long as her legs and a$$ are kicking. I don't even have a problem with a woman being religious as long as she respects my own religious CHOICE and doesn't put it down or try to convert me.


I told all my boys about her, some said they would play along, long enough to get the booty, but I know she don't want that.......

The women with high self-esteem and morals aren't so easy to lay, are they?


Church and men don't mix.....I as a man have gone to churches specifically to get some ass....but I don't want to get into the discussions with a woman about God just to get the ass.....sad thing is I know my religions and it disgusts me to see these religious women who really don't even know what the hell they are talking about....

In lots of ways church and men don't mix. My grandfather and an uncle of mine both switched to their wives' denominations when they got married. Neither of them really took religion all that seriously. If they had, then perhaps they'd want their wives to make the switch??? A lot of men I know would rather be doing anything but sitting in a pew listening to another man preach at them.


This old man told me once if you don't get lucky at the club on Saturday go to church on Sunday and the ladies who left by themselves at the club the night before will be there on Sunday preying for a man......

True, there are a lot of people who play both sides by holding a beer in their hand the night before and a bible the morning after.


The christian church is for women, families and recovering addicts.....single men with half a brain won't waist their time with that silliness...unless there is something to gain (i.e. a woman)......Game recognize Game is the term.... we understand the preachers hustle.....

True, but then again churches require money to stay open; otherwise, they'll go out of BUSINESS.


I'm all for talking to a woman about her wants and needs but they can go to hell with that church BS....

I worked with a black Christian lady and she said men are hard to find in church. Christianity still has a few centuries left, even with people leaving it for something else, for anything else. After all, it's been a while since church attendance was enforced. And some people like me after having tried Christianity and read the Bible for myself, I found that it made outrageous claims and felt strange, foreign. It's sad that there are a lot of people of Northern European ancestry (and other ancestries) who aren't familiar with their ancestral stories (the Irish "Cattle Raid of Cooley" and the Norse eddas and sagas, for example) as they are with stories from a monotheistic Middle Eastern people.

After all, we all got our own stories!

Aren't all people so lucky to be born in the right country that validates their religion? Hell would just be overflowing if that hadn't happened just right.

Depends on how much religion plays a part in their life, and how much you find you have in common with them on their religious beliefs and practices. You have to work it out between the two of you. Sometimes, it works. Other times, it splits you up, and you both then move on, to look for someone who is compatible with you.

I just wonder why so many people who don't like religion, don't just look for someone similar. I mean, if there are so many people who don't like religion, wouldn't they prefer someone of similar lifestyle choices? Is it THAT hard to meet someone who has the same religion or non-religion as you?

I think a person can be very religious and not be at all like the next religious person, there are ideas that I constantly fight with in my mind that other people will say is very simple and then quote the bible, but I see a history book with characters that can't be ignored yet can't be fully accepted because it just doesn't make common sense. Yet despite it all I thank Jesus for giving me guidelines to go by such as the golden rule and it makes plenty of sense. No question in my mind there is a god, the kind that protects babies from injury on a four story fall. Whether to try and include this deity in your life is your choice, I try constantly with confusion and then I pray for him to remove the confusion. I still think I am liberal in my views but this year I will vote republican because 15 trillion will turn to 30 trillion fast and I would rather die than give up ninety percent of my paycheck.

People say do not discuss religion or politics when first dating---I say you must. Those are core values and if you are so different on those issues you need to know up front and right away because if that is a conflict you are wasting your time.
Religious issues just can not be changed in a person very easily and you should move on to a person that has more of your same beliefs.

Well, maybe they do but then we have the liars on here who misrepresent themselves to others. Aren't you one that admitted you are jewish and do not want a woman to know that ahead of time? You told us that years ago.

What is the point of withholding such information knowing full well that others might contact you with the idea that you are non-religious? Who would be that ashamed of their religious beliefs and just when does someone expose their religious beliefs to someone who has been misled like that?

I mean, if there are so many people who don't like religion, wouldn't they prefer someone of similar lifestyle choices?
Absolutely and that is why it is really sad that so many in here lie about it and misrepresent themselves to others about that.

Is it THAT hard to meet someone who has the same religion or non-religion as you?
Yes ... especially when people are outright lying about it ... and you are one of them!

I wont date someone that goes to church. Nothing in common it would never work. I dont get along with religion getting shoved down my throat

I just love opinions like this one. The man went to church before her and will keep going after her. Yet, it's construed as shoving religion down her throat.

Baptized a Catholic and attended Baptist schools on Sundays so my parents got a break :)

That being said, I work Sundays. I'm not 'religious'.

I'm open to all faiths, but I won't convert to Judaism by the 3rd date.

One gal that was 'religious' contacted me twice. 2 years apart.

I told her each time that I haven't changed.

Religion is a 'core' value. I respect that, but please don't expect me to change my core values just so we can be a couple.

YMMV

p.s.

As a matter of fact, I TRIED to date a female pastor.

She actually went so far as to say that she believed in pre-marital sex.

KUDOS!

But...one fella before me accepted her profession, yet walked out the first time he saw her give a sermon.

After a month of dating 'in the middle' driving wise, so her congregation would not see us together, I threw in the towel.

No intimacy plus I just felt plain nasty trying to 'get it on' with a servant of the Lord.

I felt awful when she said....'I fed you by hand on the beach!'

Damn....

That bad, huh?

The best sermons I ever heard were by Dr. Philip H. Towner in NYC... well, he's a PhD and has lived in Oxford... no wonder... after sermons like his you miss the same level of sophistication. Too bad NYC has no parking... I couldn't do it on Sunday's mornings anymore after a while.

Well, that strongly depends on what church one goes to. There are people who go to church sometimes and don't preach it out at all... but they've grown up on it and take it more like going to a family gathering out of routine.

No intimacy plus I just felt plain nasty trying to 'get it on' with a servant of the Lord.

Well, since she was down for premarital porking, as she said -- I wouldn't find it 'nasty'. I'd find it 'wrong' if I in any way had to play any games in any way to Convince... but come on, wouldn't it be cool/exciting to pork a female pastor? I could see that excitement in the mind overshadow the actual level of true Like & Compatibility. But if you did have that, that would just be an added turn on!

Post 212..ah cotter the Jew-hunter strikes again..sniffs 'em out and forces them to "confess"..would have risen in rank in the Waffen-SS, no doubt...

"admitted" you were a Jew..is it a crime?

Dig up a thread that was abandoned 5 years ago just to make this "triumphant" comment!!

" I caught you!! You're a shape-shifting reptile who eats children and hoards money..er, I meant to say , a jew "- cotter.
If we were in cttr's beloved Third Reich, the thousand year Reich, indeed it would be a crime..shows the ruse about the flimsy "distinction" claimed between being "anti-Zionist" and anti-Jew.
It's Jews you hate, cttr, like many who hide behind the "zionist" thing..come clean and admit it, don't be one of those mealy-mouthed slime who hates and lies about it, denies it. Doesn't have the courage to state their hate honestly.
You and the bald tanned guy oj 126, white supremacist and anti-semite, from Florida have common cause

I wonder why someone would come back and make a snide comment to a man's post from 5 years ago. Who would someone bother to look for an old thread just to comment to a guy she says admitted he was Jewish? That sounds very petty.

I used to wonder about things like this myself. Then I concluded that some of the people on here are mentally ill.

I actually feel sorry for them while others get angry and argue with them.

To each their own I guess.

True, it seems that way..maybe write "Jude" on the header of each profile she outs.
Is an online Kristallnacht possible?
Perhaps it is organizing one, heard it has a preference for Brown Shirts.

Nope ... just happened to be looking through threads on "religion" because the topic keeps coming up in "Off Topic" and found his name and remembered that he was saying he did not really want to put "jewish" on his profile because women don't want to date a "jew".

Who would someone bother to look for an old thread just to comment to a guy she says admitted he was Jewish?
I would ... so I can go back and keep looking for proof when people like that hateful "marilyn" poster who comes in here spewing her venom ... accusing me of making shit like that up. She herself is jewish and doesn't put it on her profile either. I guess she's too ashamed of it.

That sounds very petty.

Not to me ... especially since there are so many people trying to put me down for outing the liars!

Given that he is a "religion liar" himself, I thought it was really ironic that he posted what he did ...
Is it THAT hard to meet someone who has the same religion or non-religion as you?

Yeah I know ... we're getting so many reincarnations these days ... but they never seem to change their posting styles. Wouldn't it be easier just to keep one profile and proceed?

Sooooo ... "Quinneskimo" ... what reincarnation are you? How many is this? Reincarnation #5 or perhaps #6 ... maybe even #7?


I actually feel sorry for them while others get angry and argue with them.
Maybe others feel sorry for you too ... you make some pretty bizarre posts yourself ... eh?

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.

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.
o·pen-mind·ed



adjective

adjective: open-minded; adjective: openminded




willing to consider new ideas; unprejudiced.

synonyms: unbiased, unprejudiced, nonpartisan, neutral, nonjudgmental, nondiscriminatory; More




Jesus said to Judge not hypocritically (matt 7:1)
Often misquoted "Judge not less you be judged" , or also out of context.
