I was just wondering, out of your experience what is the person who was religious person you have met. I myself am a christian, and I am told I am very nice.
Most Helpful Guy
Oh, I've known lots of great religious people. My mother is one, but I confess I'm biased. When I was a boy, I was raised a Catholic, and I had the privilege to know many fine people who taught me my catechism who were all very religious.
Father Joe, for one. He was one of the kindest men I ever met. Father Delaney. He gave one of the most profound and stirring sermons about the hatred in Northern Ireland. Great man, and he was so funny! One of my CCD teachers, Mrs. Tetarika (I'm not sure if I'm spelling that right) was very patient and very kind. She would stay well after class answering my many questions to the best of her ability. Sister Martinez was very kind. She defied the stereotype that nuns are unattractive women with a face only Jesus could love. My God she was breathtakingly beautiful! She was also very sweet and she could play the guitar very well, including Flamenco. My friend's mother, Mrs. Silverman, was so very kind. She invited me over for her family's Passover Seder. Her son, Michael, was very kind to me. He gave me gifts for Xmas, which being very young and naïve, I thought was breaking some sort of Jewish law! The rabbi at Mike's barmitzvah seemed like a cool guy, though I only met him just that one time. He was a holocaust survivor and a fascinating man. I could have talked with him for hours! My piano teacher. Miss Barvik was Russian Orthodox (a rarity, since communism did it's damndest to erase religion). She was patient with me and she was a brilliant pianist. She opened my heart and mind to the world of classical music for the piano, something of which I am eternally grateful for. My current supervisor is a devout Christian who recently returned from missionary work in Indonesia. She is wonderfully kind and she has donated time and money to improving the lives of children in third world countries. Her daughters have done likewise and are two of the kindest and remarkable young women I've met. I could go on, but I won't.0
