As the question states, does it matter to you what your other half's religion is?
I'm a pagan/polytheist but not very open about it (as in I don't bring it up unless specifically asked). I stay open-minded when it comes to religion. I just try to avoid dating guys who are very religious in general. Usually my dates are culturally Christian. I respect others' beliefs as long as they aren't trying to convert me.

It doesn't factor in at all really. I'm largely nonreligious in that I have no real dogmatic beliefs, but I do appreciate many different religious teachings, so I guess you could say I'm open-minded. The only thing I tend to avoid is someone who is super religious, like you do. Not because they're religious, but because often the more into one's religion someone is, the more they want everyone else to be into it too. And I just don't like that kind of thing. I like talking religion and discussing beliefs, and I don't care what anyone else believes in, but any ounce of pressure from someone I like, to change my thinking, will only push me away and start to unravel whatever interest I had in them. We might be able to be friends, but we wouldn't work in a relationship. If I'm going to change my thinking, it'll be because something I've read or that we've discussed has struck a chord in me, not because someone else thinks I'm wrong. I'm not debating right and wrong at all, I think it's silly.1
