Of course it's possible. My first college roommate - not chosen - was Muslim. We're still good friends, 26 years later! <br />

One religion (or belief) may not always understand the other, but we can tolerate. I'd no more want a very conservative, fundamentalist, radical Christian to represent me as a Christian than most Muslims would want a radical, violent Muslim to represent himself/herself.

Christian people can be argumentative or unreasonable, just like everyone else. In Christian teaching the idea is that people aren't perfect, but forgiven. It is in the attempt to do right for the sake of God that a Christian can either seem righteous or self-righteous. Christians who have spiritual maturity don't waste time judigng others. I enjoy geting into discussions on issues of faith. People hold their ideas and beliefs very deeply. Christianity has "evangelism" or drawing others to Christ at the core of its message, so many Christians believe they must bring others to God. At times we can seem like salespeople. <br />

Christianity is about redemption (Jesus died to pay the penalty for our sins, and rose from the dead in final victory over sin's ultimate penalty). Many people feel like their sins seperate them from God, so Christianity shows a path to forgiveness and restored relationship. <br />

I will tell you that at times, when I mention my faith among atheists they treat me like I am ignorant, scientifically unaware and barely worthy of conversation. They can be as harsh as any harsh Christian. On the other hand, I also know many gracious atheists and agnostics who simply have serious doubts about the existence of God, as agnostics, or outright reject the idea of God as athiests. They treat me with respect. <br />

As to Muslims, their level of tolerance may seem to depend on your definition of tolerance. While Muslims say they weorship the same God as Jews and Christians, Biblically knowledgeable Christians will suggest that "Allah" is not the God of Christianity. I could go on at length about this, but I don't want to create argument. I wish merely to provide information. <br />

I believe that it is wisest to be gracious to others regardless of their belief system. Ungraciousness simply makes you seem ungracious. It is not an attractive way to relate to others.
