He's disrespecting my religion
Mon, 07-04-2011 - 11:46pm


I have been in a relationship with a man for nearly 6 years. I am a Christian (not a conservative one however) and he classifies himself as "spiritual". It has been hard for me to accept his beliefs and after trying to see eye to eye on certain religious ideas I have given up trying to get him to believe what I do.

A few days ago he made a joke

If you feel disrespected which is the same as your religious beliefs being disrespected, then why have you been with him for 6 years?

Hi aprettysenior, welcome to the board

I have to echo the others with their comments on you having tried to convert him.
