Well, so here's the deal.
I've got sort of a massive... crush, I guess you could say, on this one guy. I'm fairly certain he is an atheist, if not agnostic, and I'm a little bit skittish about telling him that I'm a Jesus freak.
I'm not ashamed of my faith, but I don't want to ostracize him, or put him on edge. A lot of people assume right off the bat that I'm going to start preaching damnation at them as soon as I mention that I'm a girl of faith, even though that is simply not the case. D:
So I'm in need of some opinions from my atheistic brothers and sisters.
Atheists, would you date a Christian?
Would it bother you if someone you were friends with and/or were kind of into turned out to be one of those weird people that adores going to Church, and would rather muck about in ruined buildings than have sex?
Do you think that their beliefs put a strain on your relationship?

It would depend on the extent of their beliefs. If she believed in god, that's fine. If she believed Jesus was our lord and saviour, as long as she didn't push it on me. If she goes to church every Sunday, probably not, but I'd take it on a case by case basis.
No sex before marriage, I'm willing to wait a while for her to be ready, but in the long run, no. That is, I would not marry someone I've never been with, I think marriage is a far more serious matter than sex and if she wasn't ready to have sex, she's not ready to get married.
I am one that is opposed to faith because it makes a virtue out of not thinking. Having faith that something is true means believing it is true no matter what evidence or proof is given.
In summary, would I refuse to date someone because she's christian? no. However it does make me cautious and want to dig deeper. When I first find out, I usually follow up with "Do you believe in evolution?" On its own, it's not definitive, but it's a good indication.0
