    Should?

    Who can tell?

    That it often does tells us all there is to know about the circumstance.

    I wonder how much of the time it (as an obstacle) wins or loses?

    People of different religious or political beliefs get together and stay happily together all the time. So I would say that it shouldn't.
    This doesn't mean it never does.

    it’s an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    Kinda what I said, but lacking the same clarity, and wasting approximately fifteen more letters in the effort.

    In that instance, they ought to be able to work around it.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    It never affected my marriage or my families marriages. Everyone of them are 'mixed' marriages. I have found that very few people are that religious to let it come between them and their partners.

    If someone has deeply held beliefs (and I include atheism in that) then it is part of who they are. If someone else cannot accept that belief then they do not truly love them. If you love someone then you accept who they are, surely their belief system is what defines that.

    I have friends who are a truly mixed marriage. He is bretheren (sp) she is totally atheistic (not an agnostic bone in her body). They have been married for 28 years and love each other deeply. Each knew who the other was when they married and that is who they fell in love with. Warts and all.

    This statement brings up an interesting question: What, if any, are the differences between Agnostics and Atheists?

    Here's an interesting point of view, one of many.

    Atheism vs. Agnosticism

    Religion is love....and if anyone says otherwise they will be hideously tortured for all eternity.
