@enitharmon: You're living in a world where ya can stay with everyone you wish, despite of disagree opinions. But if everybody say you can't be happy with that person... almost think so much about the reasons they give ya.
And a world without religions? Well, to believe in something (believe in God, or whatever) isn't bad. And some religions adduce good manners and feelings to ppl that otherwise perhaps could fall in hate to their own lifes. But some unnecesary liturgies and extreme beliefs (like talibans that everybody talk about lately) are the bad side of the issue.
