"I applaud you sir. I greatly believe that anyone, Catholic, Jewish, Atheist, ect... should take a class like that. Mine was called World Religions. It was a required class taught in my CATHOLIC high school and the teacher taught it for what it was…"

"You have all colors of the spectrum in any religion or lack of religion. From extreme will degrade you for your beliefs to can look past a persons religion for who they are. I personally hate the extreme weather he/she is an extreme Catholic, Jewish…"

"The "extreme" part is what defines them as incompatible. Fundamentalism is inherently dividing; if there's no middle way, there's no peace (*cough*Buddhism, just saying)"

""They both turn into extreme. Believer and non-believer." I guess I can't get pass the 'extreme' part of this. To me that means non-accomodating. My wife and I have been married for over 32 years. She is a believer and I am…"

"I never get along with any girl that believes hardcore, because they always talk about church and praying and, to be honest, it gets really irritating. That would be my guess. "He" got irritated."

Say two people get married. Woman is from non-religious background and man is raised hard core Muslim.They both don't care about religion. Woman believes in some form of God but she is not part of any particular religion. Man does not want to be a Muslim and that was never an issue between them.Now two things happen!First woman gets pregnant to have a child against all odds.
