i do have friends from different religions. real ife as well as online friends. in my school days my best friends used to be muslims and they were really nice and good people. we never talked about the religion in terms of who is right and who is wrong but we loved to share our customs and beliefs. between us there was never such a question of which religion is great and which isn't. still i have one friend who is muslim and i do respect her custom and culture as she gives to mine:)if one starts to think about friends in the view of their religion his views really become very nerrow.. just cherish what we share as a human.:)

Since Catholic is the dominant religion here in our country, Philippines, I am the one who's "different". I'm a Christian and most of my friends are Catholic. But I don't really mind it. Way back in high school, I had lots of friends with different religion and it didn't serve as a barrier to our friendship. I guess true friends surpass any differences.

Yes, I have many friends who are of a different race and different religion. Despite our differences, we get along really well and our differences have never gotten in the way of our friendship. That's so amazing and I'm so glad that we got to know each other. :)

I do and we have been friends for over 20 years. The most important thing to remember here is that you have to respect your friends or every body's religion. You have your own beliefs and not everyone believes the same thing. We just have to respect that.

I do have friends of different religions. We get along because of our interests. Actually, I don't mind being friends from different religions. As long as we respect each other's belief, then everything's fine.

yup, i have tons of friends with different religion. religion, race, gender etc is not a barrier for me to be friends with others. it doesn't mean that if we're of one race/religion, we only have to make friends with the people who is of the same race/religion with us. i think that's pretty immature. aren't we living in a multi-cultural world? we should be friends with anybody, regardless of their religion ^_^

I dont think religion should in anyway affect our minds when we look out for friends. I have friends from all religions. And all of them are pretty close to me. So dont have a problem with that.

Hi there..Yes! I have friends with different religion. Does it matter girl?!? Well, having different religion is not a big issue. As long as you understand and respect one's belief. That's how friendship grows..You understand, respect, love, care and accept her/him.

I also have friends who do not share with me the same religion, in fact, most of my pals are of a different religion. But I have no problems with it. Respect with each other helps us to cope with our differences.

yes! i have a lot of friends with different religions. some of my friends are Inglesia ni Kristo, Baptist, Catholics, Born Again Christians, Muslims, Anglicans, So many. I am a christian. for me, making friends with people with different religions have nothing to do with the building blocks of friendship.
