Not at all!!!!! Although I was baptized and confirmed in the roman catholic faith, I happen to be non-religious for at least the past 45 years, and my wife has been a practicing Catholic all of her life! <br />
We got married in a Catholic ceremony in 1978, and we have been happily married ever since then. I do not attempt to "convince" my wife of my sense of non-religion, and she doesn't try to "convince" me of her catholicism. We are very compatible.<br />
Our daughter has been brought up in the Roman Catholic faith, through confirmation. For a while, I told her about why I am non-religious, but have decidedly not interfered in her own choice of what she wishes to believe or disbelieve.<br />
Hopefully, my honestly written answer helps shed light on this subject.<br />
Here's my opinion. You can hate on it all you like, but it is my opinion, and I shall place it here.<br />
I do not think so. Why? Because, with my experiences, Christians and many other religions are mostly stubborn with their beliefs. A true Atheist is someone who believes, beyond doubt, that there is no God, or any other omnipotent figure ruling over our planet. It's not usually the fact that individuals are unwilling to accept an Atheist into their lives. It is usually the older generations, who stick very closely to their beliefs, and somewhat 'force' their ideas onto their children. This could mean that the parents/other relatives may not approve of this Atheist. <br />
All of this said, I could be very wrong. It can work, if there's enough love, and they are willing to accept their individual beliefs and not try to change one another. In my experiences, though, different beliefs usually end in some sort of conflict.
Depends on the kind of Christian and atheist, but, given the smug, anti-religion types of atheists I've met so far, I'd say yes.
Nope. Not if it's a real Christian and an atheist who isn't an *******.
Are you implying that the majority of Atheists are ********? That sounds very much to me like you are.
Outspoken proponents of any perspective are often ********. I'm an atheist myself, so make of it what you will.
Maybe he's implying the majority of atheists are too aggressive and argumentative to get along with Christians.
Not necessarily. They can work as long as there is respect for one another's beliefs.
Anythings doomed to fail if anyone is forcced to do something they don't want to do. period. if they both respect eachothers beliefs they are fine.
I will let her do her thing if she does not bother me about what I do.
If they are enough open mind I think it can put some spice in their life :)
Religion never breaks a relationship. It's always greed that trashes them.
It might succeed if they let indoctrination outside their door.<br />
It can go both ways, you know.
