Why would he still want to be friends?

My ex dumped me cause he thinks it won't work out cause my mom doesn't approve (only cause dating is against her religion - I'm atheist and he knows) and that he's not perfect for me. He says he still loves me and I still love him. I asked if we can still be friends and he said ok. I asked if we can still hang as friends and he said ok. It makes no sense. ? I asked if he'd rather cut me off or be friends and he said "no I want to be friends."
