You try to be all sweet and feed them a french fry.

Then said person says "say your blessings"

You stare and say "Eat the damn french fry" and laugh

they repeat

you stare again

they finally eat the french fry



This refers back to a post I made about dating/marrying with obvious religious differences and whether it can work.

What would you have done? And would that be enough to nix any idea of any further dates?

Hmm. I would probably have done the same thing... And then quickly gotten discouraged over the quantity of Mormons who leave me to stew in my forthrightness.

What's interesting is trying to figure out what you were "suppose" to do. I can't picture even a very Christian date getting down on their knees and saying grace out loud over that French fry.

Religion is very touchy *she says, stating the obvious*. I think I'm a little lucky, because men seem to be a little more reluctant when it comes to church. If I decide on one maybe it will be a little easier to "corrupt" him. For you, it might be best just to be very open and honest and calm if the subject comes up again.
Right. My bad.
If you do not eat this fucking french fry, right now, I will not only say my blessings, I will pray the prayer of smiting to God almighty who will SMITE you and turn your eyes to jellatin....which I will then generously lap at....with a straw.....

or maybe


If you do not eat this F'ing french fry, I'm gonna start screaming at the top of my lungs, so that everyone in the restaurant can here, "NO, GODDAMNIT!! I'M TIRED OF WEARING YOUR HIGH HEELS, JANET!!! I WON'T DO IT ANY MORE, NOT ONE MORE F'IN' DAY"
Wow. You'd be fun to videotape and awful to date, lol. Let me know where to find you on YouTube haha
Many a date has been ruined over French fry inspired religious conflicts (freedom fries for any lunatics reading this).
I would call it quits. you two clearly aren't a match.

She's better off finding someone who is equally self repressed so she can share her misery.

You need to find yourself a fellow Atheist... or at least an open minded theist. (If there is one).
I'm glad I don't have to deal with this anymore since I'm married to an atheist (with at most a nominally Buddhist background). I had a bad dream last night that she wanted me to attend church. I think it was because I went to my first mass in almost five years since it was my sister's wedding.
There's religious and there's push religious. Anyone who starts out a relationship pushing their belief system on you will never stop pushing. Even asking once is a bad sign, asking twice is a big, blaring, Las Vegas night club sign. What happened after the other person finally ate the french fry?
This conversation led me to remind my wife that we will not force
religion on any children we might have. she politely insisted that they would be raised catholic! This could become
a serious issue in the future.
If my children become religious all on their own, I'll be disappointed but they'll still be my kids; however they will at the very least hear both sides of every story. I will not be attending church with any children i might have (special events excluded) and if they ask why I'll fill them in on all the details.
original sin, masturbation, YOU going to hell, why didn't Noah save all the baby kittens, Daddy?
Those will be some very entertaining conversations that I cannot wait to have.
