Dating a Christian

from Squishy - Monday, October 15, 2007

I am an agnostic an currently dating a Christian girl which is fine by me.

Being an x-member I was brought up with most of the Christian belief systems installed in me until such a time where I stopped believing and am now an agnostic. However, I cannot see the logic in such fanatical Christianity to the extent that they will attend church services for 24hrs. She's not a member of one of those main stream christian religions, but rather one of those almost evangelical churches. She's still young so I'm pretty sure that she is just going with the flow of her friends. But if she really believes to the full extent of what she tells me there are so many contradictions. The Christianity she follows is to the T of the Bible but on further investigations anything that Christians do will then be subject to hell and disgrace by God. Anyways I just needed to let it out and any comments are welcome on how I should handle this situation from anyone who's had this experience before.

Living with my super-Christian brother, same thing. He's very active in his young people's church. We just accept our differences, he tries not to play his Christian music when I'm home, etc. We seem to be doing okay with it. Perhaps in a romantic relationship it's different, I suppose it depends on how close a relationship it is and you want it to be, as there will be that part you cannot share. I think, don't try to change her, just respect what she says, calmly offer your views, and she'll be more likely to grow out of it if she isn't pushed. Mainly, it doesn't have to be an issue.

Fine, but what if she, or your brother, don't "grow out of it"? Will you still be okay with that? Would you still accept your brother as he is?(reply to this comment

Shut up Samuel. I don't have to "accept" my brother. He's part of me. He's my baby. I raised him. It's just our differences we both have to accept, and we do. Apart from the religion stuff, he's my flesh and blood. No "acceptance" will ever be needed. Same goes for my sister still in, and my dad, once you dig beneath all the culty crap.(reply to this comment

Same as dating a woman who doesn't give BJs or a guy who doesn't pick up his underwear and socks. Same as anything else in life. You decide if you can live with it or not...... easy peasy

Actually, Christians who take virginity pledges are more likely to engage in oral and anal sex than their non-pledging counterparts. to this comment
