I'm wondering if a lot of the time people talk about 'their religion" in terms of their baptism and not so much what they practice.
I could say that I am Greek Orthodox because thats how im baptized but I dont practice it.
I get on well with religious people because in the end we all want the same things. We all want peace. I had a great conversation in the street today with a man who was carrying a really nice stained glass window. It had some religious icons on it and that got me talking and asking questions. He identified himsef as a Christian an I an atheist and we had a really good chat. Its just the hardcore ones I have a problem with and Im sure that you have a problem with them ones too, so we are pretty much the same. We should be helping each other really and not arguing about 2000 year old rules.
Sam - are you Christian? I thought you were and I wrote that post as if you were but if your not - ooops sorry :/
but you know what i mean?
Tell her that while you respect her beliefs, they are not your beliefs,and that you would like to leave it at that.
