I'm a strong atheist, and I'm one who respects all religions, not judging anyone I meet by their religious background. I would be just as happy dating a heavily religious girl as I would an atheist, as I wouldn't judge her on her beliefs, only her personality. If she respected other beliefs as much as her own, that would be all that would matter.
Whether you are on my side or the religious side of this debate, would you do the same?

I don't think so, being strongly atheist I don't think my personality would match with someone who was strongly religious. Even though I respect theists, I do not respect religion itself. There would be too many hurdles too, such as her family wouldn't like me (I assume, seeing as strongly religious people generally have strict religious parents) and I wouldn't want to be married in a religious ceremony.

I don't believe in dating or relationships, no girl is worth the time or effort. But I'd have sex with any attractive woman regardless of anything, as long as the sex is good and her body is sexy, then I'm good to go. Pussy is pussy at the end of the day. Don't really care about anything else, I don't need anything from a woman apart from sex. She can believe in what she wants

I'm an atheist and it would depend on how religious they were. I don't have an issue with religious people in principle, but I would have an issue if they were strongly religious to the point of it basically running their life.

Especially if it led to them being homophobic or maybe anti-science on some issues, but that is unlikely to be the case here in the UK as those are more American problems.

I don't think it would be a massive problem as long as they were tolerant of my atheism (and I would likewise be tolerant of their religion). If it ever got to the point of marriage etc. then it could be problematic as I don't overly care to make vows in front of god and so on.

I don't think I could date an atheist. As I've got older my views on matters of faith and spirituality have become more important so I couldn't do it now.

As a Christian, no. Not because of judging an Athiest by his beliefs or saying he is any "less" ( making that clear as some people seem to get that idea of us Christians) but more that I wouldn't want to get myself so emotionally attatched to someone who wouldn't be going to heaven (if my beliefs about Heaven is true). It would be too painful to imagine, especially if we were to one day get married.

I don't think I could ever be with an atheist tbh. It would be very difficult to be with someone who didn't share similar beliefs. Much easier to just date fellow Catholics :jebus:

Well he went as far as to say agnostic but not strictly atheist. And even so it was after lots of discussion with his wife about religion and morality

He may not have wanted to upset her but his wife was a creationist. In anycase he'd only have been agnostic in the same sense that Dawkin's is

He never committed himself to Athiesm although he did move away from Religion his beliefs are more aptly described as agnostic.
