    Because we're housemates? There's lots to talk about, independent of that particular subject.

    Now, if they were RWNJs, I wouldn't be able to live here.

    I NEVER discuss religion with fundies in RL.

    There is a retreat center that I go to that is owned by the RCC, but it is very liberal. Great people there. I have lots in common with them.

    BTW, I am reading, THE FAMILY, by Jeff Sharlet. He went undercover to a right wing Jesus power cult in DC. The book is well written and very well researched.

    40 pages of references.

    No, atheists and Christians have nothing in common when it comes to religion.

    I'm asking the question because I NEVER talk about religion with people that I may offend in RL, but I do it here all the time.

    Dad is a christian, love him to death.

    Brother is an non-believer of all religions, love him to death.

    I have multiple sisters, twochristian, one an agnostic, love them to death.

    I talk to people who I think are good people, I don't think religion impacts whether or not someone is or can be a good person.

    That's because you have an agenda.

    :confused:


    Why not discuss religion as long as its friendly? I have many good conversations with atheists. I see where you guys are coming from. I at times question my God, and he is OK with that.... its what makes me human.
    BTW, I am a christian, but I am not religious.... religion destroys your individuality in my opinion.

    I dont discuss religion with ANY kind fundamentalist.... they are nutjobs and I refuse to talk to them, b/c they are just in it for confrontation. That is a losing proposition every time.

    Yeah. Sharing the truth and showing people the power the love of God has in making them happy.

    When you feel the love of God in your life, you want to share it with everyone who will listen because you gain a greater capacity to love and more joy in your life. You want everyone, even those you might have hated at one point to feel that. it's truly humbling.
