    What about the ones that believe in leprecauns and brownies that steal your keys?

    My 5 cents: they'd better do it, or they won't get laid at all

    No, I would never be able to enter a relationship with a religious person. I would generally consider him / her an irrational mess of idiocy. Obviously this doesn't mean they cannot have their own version of christianity, islam or what-have-you, blending peculiarities from a variety of spiritual conceptions. Being religious here in Italy has a rather precise meaning (i.e. going to mass, marrying in a church, denying evolution, etc.), which I cannot accept.

It was fairly traumatizing that my mother, even though she loves me unconditionally, thought that I would go to "hell" because I did not subscribe to Christianity.
    To a large degree that fits my experience (although I had a conflicted conviction in the specifics of the faith at first, then got to a point where intellectually I found I couldn't just agree with details just to agree).

    The story about your mom is the same as the story about my mom, pretty verbatim. I felt bad for her pain, but in the end I can't believe (or pretend to believe) something the way she does just in order to make her feel better.

    I'd only marry a theist. Atheist friends are great, they challenge me in ways my fellow theists do not. But marriage is another matter. If you don't share your deepest values, it just won't work.

    Wait, better call them "superstitions", not values.

    I wouldn't. Personally, it stems from the desire to have a mind mate, and whereas there's various issues in which I could allow for flexibility in choices between us, that's not one of them. The only way I can see it working in the event both parties aren't theists is if that topic of discussion remained completely off-limits, which I wouldn't go for just on principle, and in the event it was to be mentioned it would constantly boil down to faith based ideology vs logical reasoning, and there's just too much natural incongruence there in something of that magnitude. I would be under constant self-restraint to not point out the logical inconsistencies associated with religion.
