    With the forth coming wedding of Chelsea Clinton to a member of the Jewish community - has America finally turned a corner - is inter-faith marrage the way forward - is it time to cast off our sectarianism and marry people outside our narrow cultures and religious identities smile

      Depends on the individuals. If their faiths don't conflict, or cause any, doesn't much matter. I think it's only an issue if it causes major differences, and thereby leads to separation.
      Whether or not it's the way to go, is a bigger issue. I doubt if a blanket response to this will do it justice.

      Yes I believe it is the way forward and is inevitable. It will be so good as people of mixed religions cannot fight foolishly over the superiority of one religion or prophet.

    What are you talking about IO?

    America has not had a problem inter-religous marraiges or inter-racial in decades.

    You people have no clue about America.

      "America" might not have had a problem, but that does not mean it does not exist.

      - Many churches still frown on inter-faith marriages -- many seek to forbid it.

      - Muslim women attempting to marry non-muslim men in many cases continue to see their marriages suspended and are subjected to pressure.

      - Orthodox and conservative jews continue to forbid interfaith marriage.

      The examples are endless.

      The point is; while attention may not be at its highest, interfaith marriages continue to be a point in contention, and many people are forced to either hide their marriages or suffer huge amounts of pressure.

      Just because YOU don't see them, doesn't mean they don't exist.

    I think you are deflecting your own issues and hatred of inter-faith and inter-racail marriage onto the general American public.

    So sad...

    You should probrably understand that what two people want to do, is thier business... not yours.

        You never answered my question ohma...

        Are you a teacher, professor or education professional?

        I answered all yours, at least 5, if not 6.

        It is your turn, there is 1.

          I did answer your question in the other thread. I am not a teacher.
          The cotradiction i was referring to was this part of your statement:

          It is obvious from your comments in other threads that you do not truly believe or support this idea but you say it here why is that?

          1. TMMason profile image68
            TMMasonposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            Which part?

            You say above, this part of your statement... but there is nothing there quoted. Please clearify a lil bit more for me ohma.

            You know it takes me a few extra clues every now and then.

            Or I can guess..

            "You should probrably understand that what two people want to do, is thier business... not yours."

            If you thhink I contradict that in my beliefs, then you should really start reading my posts instead of just believing the leftists babblings about me.

                Doesn't take much to amuse you two, eh.

                Amazing how some think insults and slurs gain them the upperhand in something.

                I think it tends more to show a lack of actual knowledge and an attempt to cover and hide flaws in thier own ill concieved beliefs and understandings.

                But you know how it is... thats just me.

                What is funny is they way you all high five each other like you think you have scored a goal or something.

                I guess as long as everyone who likes you agrees with you, then that is okay.

        And while your at it.  What contradictions would those be ohma?

        The one where I don't want to reward illegals and I don't want open borders, so I must be a racist.

        And the one where I don't lie as to what the Qu'ran really says, and I won't embrace the void peaceful suras, and ignore the valid militant ones. So I, of course, must hate all muslims.

        Never mind, I see your point.

              We, as a species, learned long ago that mystics and mysticism is a joke. It's a shame you haven't learned it too. wink

    Hi Irish, I know that religion is a big deal in Ireland with the troubles and all, but it's not unusual to marry outside of one's faith here in the US.

    Mr. Mason.
    I can honestly say that first of all in most cases ie: your view in immigration and some politics that we are closer in thought than you would believe, however when you say things like:

    TMMason wrote:

    with such conviction in regard to this topic but then clearly state just the opposite in regard to other subjects that is a contradiction.

    1. TMMason profile image68
      TMMasonposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      I have never said two people cannot do as they want.

      You can try to convolute my views as regards homosexuality all you want.

      Which is what I assume you are calling into conflict. I have stated repeatedly, that if someone wants to be gay, that is fine.

      That is thier CHOICE.

      But I do not believe it should be taught in schools as normal and morally acceptable ways of life.

      I also do not think anyone should be allowed to propagate false information in regards to it, homosexuality, as being genetic, or any of the other pseudo-science trying to be pushed out as fact.

      You can claim all the contradictions you want. But that is just false.

        "f someone wants to be gay"

        Are you truly insinuating that being gay involves a choice?

              Yes, you can take it as a Yes. Because, every action is determined by choice. And, I'll agree, time to move on. smile
