If religion is important to them, I would be doing a disservice to tie up their time.

True!

Exactly!

Right on.

Must be atheist and a healthy skeptic with evidence based reasoning skills.

I just divorced an atheist conspiracy theorist.
Atheism doesn’t automatically mean a person knows how to reason well.
I wish it did.

I used to not care, but if they weren't atheist, they inevitably tried to "convert" me. Awkward at best, downright annoying later on. Usually, they dumped me in disgust.

No religion. No bullshit. No drama. Or no date.

A person who believes in god...regardless of him going / not going to church....doesn't have a chance with me. See, he may say "I am an open mind guy." but the fact he believes in god makes him exactly the opposite

I can't see myself with anyone who is even a tiny bit above "religion not important".

I don’t believe in higher powers, I don’t have a certain kind of respect for those that do. I can’t be in a relationship with someone I don’t respect. Period. I’ve tried to ignore that quality in people, but it eventually bothers me too much.

Thought I could but can't. Must be at least Agnostic or attends church only to save face with family.

Hummmm I wouldn't date a guy who goes around pleasing other people to avoid problems. One thing is to be "diplomatic" and a very different one is to go through life no expressing what you really feel / are.

@DUCHESSA I hear ya. Maybe save face wasn't the phrase to use. Some Hispanics are very loyal to their elders and don't want to hurt Catholic mom and grandma. To them it's out of a sense of duty and a way to honor them. I have a hard time faulting them for caring.
As long as they don't buy into the Dogma themselves I could hang with them. smile009.gif

@MarlaPaine Besides the fact that "Hispanic" is the wrong term...don' t be so sure the sense of duty is as strong as many of you believe. FORTUNATELY, there are several Spanish speaking countries where religion is as important as a pimple in a cow's ass...and please, don't say "NO" because I am Latina, professor of Spanish, Argentinean AND WITH STRONG KNOWLEDGE OF THIS CULTURE.

@DUCHESSA I wasn't talking about Spanish speaking countries. I was talking about my experience in South Texas. I'm not sure what you are expecting me to say no about but it seams you are upset about something. Also not sure how Hispanic is the wrong term but please enlighten me.

Edited

@MarlaPaine When you say "Hispanics" you are referring -wrongly- to SPANISH speaking people regardless of the place they reside. Secondly, to make a general statement such as you did about Latinos and religion is, to say the least, spreading a myth.
Some other time I will explain to you why to describe us as "hISPANICS" is wrong.

@DUCHESSA Feel free to pm me if you feel the need. I'm comfortable being called either Latina or Hispanic. You're the first person that has expressed to me that it's "wrong."

If she isn’t at least a level 22 druid, then I’m sorry honey, it’s just not gonna work.

No, but seriously, I wouldn’t outright refuse to date someone for any level of religiousness. It’s just a factor.

People who have imaginary friends are not open to logic or reality. I certainly am not going to spend my time with them.

As long as they didn’t try to force their beliefs onto me, its not important.

I would date someone who is a church goer, with the understanding if she tried to save me from Satan or anything like that. I'm out,

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 smile009.gif just acknowledge a wonderment greater than myself. (Yes, I am a Wonderment smile001.gif
Religion . . No thank you.

I would have to be in love with someone who had religious beliefs before I could start dating them. That being said, I o ly seek relationships with agnostics/athiests.

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.

Only level 7 & up. Only joking. If they're on the level, theyre in with a chance.

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
