My liberal feminist mother couldn't take it and we switched to a progressive Methodist church instead, a return to her childhood religious roots.While I don't feel like I had a particularly religious upbringing, I clearly did. I dumped the idea of a male God and instead prayed to the pagan concept of the Goddess for years.Yeah ouch we had been together for like 7 years at that point but ok it was very difficult but I truly can say worth it… I’m an agnostic atheist and I’m currently in a year and almost a half relationship with a pretty heavy (in regards to religion not weight) Christian girl. A majority of the conflicts in the relationship don’t stem from the religion, though.You learn a lot about a woman when you know you cant bang lol… She stuck with me, and decided she was going to change my mind, by challenging what I thought. Honestly, things could be great, but then we hear something on TV, or are randomly talking and something comes up, and the next thing you know it turns into a religious discussion.
You’ll have to discover all these things on your own. If you have fun and get along, maybe religion is a barrier you can overlook at first. Maybe she’s someone who has never questioned her faith before but is interested in what you have to say.
When I was a kid, my mother and I joined a very large "non-denominational" Christian Church, one of the earliest versions of the Mega Churches that exist today. I was in the children's choir, the community was lovely, and we sang from a song book with drawings of long-haired hippies.
Everything was great until politics began to creep in and the church began hosting speakers like Jerry Falwell, the ultraconservative pastor and political pundit.
“Isn’t it great to be in a room where you can say whatever you want to whomever you want without fear of anyone criticizing you for being unorthodox?
