Its tough to love some one who is a Christian

It is tough to love someone
who is a Christian, in a romantic
sense, who can’t get over the fact
that your not being a Christian is
a dealbreaker, a ‘real’ problem,
for them. How can one change
or resolve differences, if the
problem is your beliefs?
Everyone knows beliefs tend be
quite sticky.
What few people realise is that
everyone’s beliefs are exactly
what one would expect them to
be, given the set of circumstances
that that person has been in.
Which is why atheism often goes
against the grain, it goes beyond
the average person’s experience,
but once again, it is exactly what
one would expect given the life
experience of that person.
And the truth, when it is real, and
integrated, and authentic, and
objectively real in more than one
sense, then it really does set you
free.
