A little less controversial topic, but I am curious to hear from individuals of different degree's of faith or beliefs about how what you believe possibly affects your daily life. Things like: 1) meeting someone new, is it important they have the same beliefs for you to consider them a good friend? 2) in dating, is it important he/she have the same beliefs? How would your family react if you were (example) Jewish and wanted to marry a Christian or Muslim? 3) Do people who believe in very different beliefs than you intimidate or anger you in any way? Anything along these lines you can think to add would be nice. For me as someone who does not have any faith in any religion, meeting people who do have a faith do not bother me as long as they do not push their religion on me. Discussion is fine but I do not want anyone who I would consider to be a good friend to look down upon me because I do not have a faith. Dating, I would not mind dating anyone of any faith as long as he knows I am right he is wrong... lol (kidding) But again as long as they were not pushy or looked down on me. My sister actually has been dating an American Christian for the past 2 years and after finishing University has intent to move to the USA to settle with him there. My family does not approve but I think this is more about location than religion. I am not intimidated by people of any faith as long as they are for discussion and not debate over who is right who is wrong.
