You're suppose to be NTs, at least account for people who are christian but don't give a fuck about converting you. Oh and the same can be said for atheists, religion or lack of religion to me is a personal thing. No one except you should be deciding what to believe, and if anyone looks down on you for that kick them hard and tell them to STFU
    There's a difference between not being willing to have anything to do with people who are religious and not wanting to marry someone who is. Other people's religion is their business, so long as they don't preach to me I respect their right to their faith, freedom of religion, freedom from religion and all that junk. But when it comes to a relationship as serious as marriage for me personally that would be a difference in views that is one thing I do not think I could get over, I have no issue with someone who is agnostic, even a theist leaning one, but someone who was a practicing [enter religion here] would conflict with my strong anti-religious stance. I wouldn't view them as lesser, that would be stupidly arrogant, just incompatible.

    Are we talking heavily religious or just one of the majority that claim a religion without following it all that much?

    I could see problems due to strong religious beliefs but that wouldn't include most people that identify as religious in this country.

    Theist, not religious. Depending on how you define it, that's between 52% to 89% of European Union citizens; and something close to that second percentage number for Americans and Canadians.

    there are some advantages that haven't been canvassed in this thread. if they believe in god they're likely easy to manipulate.

    Yeah, same here (agnostic)...

    Still, I would actually prefer to marry a (theologically liberal) theist, mostly because I think its good for kids to believe in free will, eternity, and all that jazz, and I would be unable to provide that perspective for them. Why depress them during their impressionable years?
