Yes, but a marriage is more than words. Nobody merely talks to their spouses and kids through an internet forum, do they? It is kind of hard to have kids, right? It takes more than words to get to know somebody and have a relationship, though you can discuss interfaith and relationships with words. If you agree with me and you see interfaith as being anything like a marriage, and a marriage is founded based on differences, then take note that communication is just a component of it. A forum can be a place to discuss interfaith, commonalities and differences, but it is just not the place where it is experienced. Experiencing interfaith, I find, the differences do play the pivotal role. When speaking of differences in person, there is nothing that Farhan could say that would bother me in the least, because in person I would have to tolerate his words and viewpoints to get to know him / her. If I can't handle a person's differences here, then how am I ever going to handle the differences with a person in a true interfaith relationship?namaste luecy7,
Heck, I could be wrong, heavens knows I've been wrong before.
This was my response to someone who just insisted on swinging. There was no marriage intended or wanted, he simply wanted to put down, belittle and ridicule folks with other beliefs.
I was simply indicating this was not the intent of this forum.
Is there interfaith in Maryland? I am married, and I will certainly not be robbing a bank, but it looks like I will be in Maryland some day soon. It sounds like a popular place. What is popular in Maryland besides posting on a rocking UK internet forum about interfaith?
