Suppose a person is interested in making new friends, or looking for a romantic relationship to get in, and religion or a certain brand of faith comes up in terms of one of the person's standards are that they must go to church a lot, and be very religious, and if they do not fit that criteria then it is automatically a deal breaker. My question is which one do you feel is more acceptable or reasonable to you or in general a) a religious person with a dark spirit, sick mind and heartless, judgemental and uptight or b) a non-religious person who has a free spirit, clear mind, a heart of gold, realizes no one is perfect, and laid back? If you was dating someone and they are very nice and have all of the qualities you are looking for except the religion part, how would you handle that? and no i am not putting down religious people whatsoever because I am sure there are religious people with wonderful personalities as well. However, this set up I have described does exist.
