So when Christian Mingle asked me to fill out what I thought being a Christian means in my bio, I immediately thought of Christmas and filled that in.I didn’t think I’d have much luck on a site that asked me for my favorite Bible passage.usually describe my religion as “Jewish, heavy on the –ish.” (Read: I will not go to services or fast on Yom Kippur, but I will swing by your breaking-the-fast party and bring some schmear.)But during a dating dry spell that’s longer (and dryer) than Moses’s 40 days of wandering in the desert, I agreed when asked me to check out some popular religious dating apps and sites.
Like two different cultures, this can be hectic, straining, and sometimes quite impossible.
Especially when you hit the triggers, and the debates come on.
Most atheists have left the dogmatic thinking of resolved divine answers without questions, to question everything.
Including why they believe anything and everything that they do.
Christian Mingle had to approve my bio and photos before they went public. I thought choosing “Charismatic” would show how charming and fun I was, but Google informed me that it is in fact a kind of Christianity that “emphasizes the work of the Holy Spirit, spiritual gifts and modern-day miracles as an everyday part of a believer’s life.” Whoops.
