Would you date a girl if she was muslim - how it should be?
Like no exrtremist things, just a normal laid back muslim. Likes to have fun, can let loose and party etc...
Also she was everything you wanted as well in terms of looks and personality.
Would being a muslim be a deal breaker, would you judge her?
Also mention any other religion you may jugde a person on, or may not date based on.

I'm Roman-Catholic, and I would die before ever even pretending to convert. I'd much prefer to date another Christian, and I used to tell myself that I would only date other Christians. However... I've met many very attractive, very sweet Muslim girls (much sweeter than domestic women), and I have developed a crush on a cute, busty Shiite girl. I honestly would date her, and perhaps even consider marriage (even if that proved a huge problem).
The bigger problem, however, is the strict internal rules of Islam. Christianity has no prohibitions on marrying those of different faiths (although St. Paul does recommend against it); Islam does. Muslim women are not allowed to date or marry non-Muslim men, and that provides more of an obstacle than my reluctance to date them. Even if she doesn't follow that regulation, such a marriage would cause trouble with her family.
There's also the fact that I don't have particularly Islam-friendly beliefs. I don't hold negative views of most Muslims, especially ones whom embrace the United States, but I certainly have disdain for Islam. I would rather Eastern Rome or the Sassanids crushed the Caliphate when it was still young; I look fondly of Pope Urban II's First Crusade--if I was alive at the time, I would've taken up arms. If I had it my way, the entire Middle-East would return to Christianity. I don't care for Islam's laws, its regulations, its views of women, apostates, and homosexuals, and I certainly don't care for the theocracies its spawned. If a Muslim wife could tolerate my views towards her religion, well, great. But, I don't see that as realistic.
In short, while I don't strictly oppose the idea of courting and marrying a Muslim woman, there are major roadblocks to such a venture.2

I Married a Sraight Shooter, No monkey business with this muslim from Egypt, @Katerina_Belle where I had to tow the Straight and narrow line Or... Not be Mine.
Religion was Never a problem when we were living together in Egypt. I am a Christian and we never Once tried to Sway one other on any given Day.
LDR was the Hardest to have and to Uphold for us. After returning to the states, we had many a Break up and Make up and even right now, for I never have returned, due to personal things and other 'Things' that have gotten much worse over there, we will always probably love one another to our Dying Day... Not being together out there was the dealbreaker that broke the camel's back for us.
Good luck and Great question. xx1
