I might be willing at #4.
My soon-to-be ex-wife is super religious and after I came out as atheist it didn't just go down hill but was like jumping off a cliff. Which is why I don't think I would start dating someone if I knew they were more than a Christmas and Easter church goer. I wouldn't want to go thru some of those problems again.
This is why I made the poll.
Wrong question, I think.
It's not a matter of religion - of what goes on in the privacy of their heads - but of what they DO.
If they're judgemental, bigotted, insist on indoctrinating children, homophobic, etc. then they are un-datable.
If they're just, fair, decent and kind, then the fact they're batshit crazy is far more tollerable.
I would allow for an understanding of an "universal intelligence" as evidenced by how biochemistry, astrophysics, et al, operate and likely include an overarching energy force or field. My understanding of this is that it is impersonal, i.e., I don't ask it for favors just acknowledge a wonderment greater than myself. (Yes, I am a Wonderment
Religion . . No thank you.
I've been willing to date women who are slightly religious (church on xmas and easter). I feel like this is my best shot at dating someone in the South since I don't come across many atheist/agnostic women. However, the real question is, is she willing to date me? So far the answer has been no.
Personally I want another nonbeliever because I was with a religious woman for over a decade and she would not discuss our religious differences in any shape or form and that killed me since I love philisophical discussions. In my bible belt region, I can not bear to put in so much effort with someone whose obvious main grievance is also something they dance around to avoid talking to me. I highly doubt it's something I'd find in another non-believer which is why I'm sort of stuck on that preference.
Honestly? It depends entirely on the specifics of the religion and the specifics of the relationship. Like, someone whose religious beliefs were innocuous enough, such as perhaps a Buddhist or Jain, I might be able to tolerate depending on how aggressive they were about promoting them. Similarly, someone who was a devout Jew but did not believe in proselytizing would also probably be okay. I might have to abide by some dietary situations that I would find absurd, but I'd give up shrimp and porkchops for a relationship that's otherwise happy and fulfilling.
Now, religions that are aggressive about converting others, are aggressive about preaching hellfire and damnation, or that believe that certain type of people do not deserve the same rights as the rest of us...any of those would instantly disqualify them from a chance at a relationship with me that wasn't constantly full of conflict
