    ofcourse! in college , school , work place we always find people from different religion and country. We talk, communicate, hang out and eventually bond like good friends. religion has nothing to do with friendship, love and humanity.

    Of course, Sir. We are all God's creation. Jesus told us to love one another. Love your neighbors as you love yourself. Also apply to loving other races equally. No discrimination.

    I think we can be good friends with people from a different religion. We won't share in the most intimate part of a friendship because we aren't of the same belief. But we can definitely be friends

    I dont see why not. religion teaches us how to except people for who they are and respect their beliefs. You can be friends with anyone, its not like you want to conform them to your beliefs. If we were all the same, it would be quite a boring world. besides you would have no surprises because you would already know what would happen next. Except people for who they are. You will see that you have a life uncommon, which is the greatest gift.

    I believe real Christians would never reject someone's friendship just because he/she has different beliefs. Remember what Jesus' answer was when He was asked: "Who is my neighbor?"?

    I agree with selfbetter...I believe a good Christian would not judge a person's "worth" as a friend based on his/her religion and could become good friends (based on other common or complimentary factors) with someone from a different faith.

    We are drawn to the  people whom we are drawn to.

    Some we teach, some we learn from, some we aid, some we recieve aid from, and some we love and cherish.

    There are differences in politics and faith.......but we are all human kind.  We need each other.  We fulfill each other, we guide and comfort.................it is the humane way.

    As a Christian, my Bible does not say, to not befriend, to not love, to not be kind........it says not to be led astray.  Other faiths say a similar thing.

    Can the friendship remain, without the forcing of one's will upon the other?  That is the true question, to be decided upon by the members of that friendship.  Some can survive, others will not prosper.

    of course...I have a lot of friends from different religions but we  don't criticize  on  each other religion.

    Sure. Why not? We've had some lively debates and agreed to disagree at times. I've always found different religions fascinating and to chat with someone about it. Priceless.
