Well, I'm an atheist, so I suspect it will surprise no one when I say no, I wouldn't take up religion for a significant other. I find it a little disingenuous when people do, unless it's acknowledged as a purely-in-name kinda thing. If you have faith in one thing, how can you just shut that off and flip a switch and have faith in something new?
"And politically correct is the worst term, not just because it’s dismissive, but because it narrows down the whole social justice spectrum to this idea that it’s about being polite instead of about dismantling the oppressive social structure of power.
Fun Fact: When you actively avoid being “PC,” you’re not being forward-thinking or unique. You’re buying into systems of oppression that have existed since before you were even born, and you’re keeping those systems in place."
