    Many people are just barely religious if at all. They don't go to church or read the bible and generally don't even think about religion. If their child announces plans to marry someone of a different faith, however, suddenly religion becomes the most important issue for the parents. (To be fair, not all parents react this way, but many do.) Why?

    Perhaps it is the same reason why some guys try to force girls they get pregnant to have an abortion, but decide they need to marry her if she doesn't kill her unborn baby.

    If "In God We Trust" is correct - why are there hospitals at all?

    How would you react if your daughter wanted to marry a Muslim?

    The thought of it makes me want to pee my pants and I don't even have daughter.

    Try Depends, a vasectomy, and a condom.

    whodey is in a hurry to Make America Great Again and him having to change his pee-sodden pants all the time just means it's going to take him longer. 😛

    Some struggle to differentiate between Muslim and terrorist.

    I wouldn't mind who my daughter married, as long as she was safe and happy.

    I'd rather my daughters married atheists but if not one religion is as good/bad as any other.
