The Happy New Atheist shares this story:
Here’s an email I received after one date with a nice Catholic woman. We had a great first date, went wine tasting and then to dinner. She said she would love to go out again.
So I asked a few days later, and here is the response:
I did have a great time with you on Friday. However, your atheist proclamation really threw me. I just can’t invest any time in someone that doesn’t believe in God and doesn’t think he has a hand in our life journey. Too bad, it would have been fun eating and cooking Indian food with you. I respect your position and wish you all the best.
I know of a number of relationships between atheists and religious people that have worked (some of those people comment on this site).
But for those of you who’ve been in these situations, where your beliefs were a liability, any stories you’d like to share?
