Religious Outlook

Postby QatarDan » May 10th, 2015, 10:20 pm

If you yourself are not very religious, don't go to a place of worship etc would you consider yourself incompatible with a girl who must attend Church every Sunday or she will burn in hell?

The reason I ask is I met a sweet girl or my recent tour of Asia who loves a bit of the bible .... and I don't.

One advantage I see is she is far more trustworthy than most and I get the sense she would be very much a one man woman.

Disadvantage is ... I may spontaneously combust if encouraged to attend Sunday mass.

Doesn't it occur to you that religion may have some value if it can produce women like this?

+1
1)Too much of one thing defeats the purpose.
2)Everybody is full of it. What's your hypocrisy?

It's for people who are in a dream world, long term if you are not a simpleton it may be rough.

Actually it's the exact opposite, it's for practical people living in the real world. If you meet a religious woman who is good, isn't it entirely practical to attend whatever religious service she attends with her in order to keep her good?

I see the value in spiritual beliefs and faith in something but don't follow a set religion, more a mix of beliefs. I do see some of the value in religion but also see the conflicts and suffering it causes. e.g protestants vs catholic, muslim extremists etc etc

Lets not debate the value of religion though and maybe discuss my initial question.

No - funnily enough in the sea of Asia beauties it was a Czech girl who was back packing around the same route as me.

I say Nooooo if you are a scientific thinker long term how could it work, chances are very slim. Now if you are sitting on the fence about the belief in Angels and Goblins then maybe.

I can understand how people can get lost in the make believe of a book because how the planet is going down the tubes and some religious people are very content but it's a vacant contentment in my book.

You also have to take this from a person who is still dating Rosie and her 5 sisters however. :mrgreen:
