I have never rejected anyone of friendship neither I would be declining someone. And on the basis of country/religion I wouldn't do that. Why? because I'm a peace lover and promoter of friendship and good relationships between each other. Would you reject someone's friendship offer because of his religion/country?

A person's country or religion is not a deciding factor when it comes to deciding to be friends with someone or not. I have a deep sense of respect for everyone no matter where they come from or what religious background they have. As long as they can respect me and the decisions I make, than I have no problems with the person, but the moment they start to belittle me, force their religion upon me, and in a sense make me start to feel inferior and/or stupid, than that is not a person I would consider to be a friend.

No way. I would never think of doing that. CAn i descriminate a person before knowing him, just because where he lives or his religion. No way.

As long as that person doesn't have a problem with my own religion and nationality, then I would never reject someone's friendship based only on that. Just because someone is of another religion doesn't mean that s/he isn't compatible with my own. And meeting friends from different countries is one of the most fun things to do in life!

When I have some requesting friendship I go and look at thheir profile to see what kind of discussions they have and how often they ususaly comment back to those discussions they have started. If They don't comment to any of the responses then that might be a reason for not accepting them as a friend . If I don't see any thing that I would like to respond to in ther topics that could be another reason for denying friendship. I never deny friendship because if religion or country. I find both very interesting and I find that some one liveing in another part of the world we have the same problems. I am amazed at how similiar we are. I will be reading a discussion and think this is happening in NewYork and look at the profile and find that they are in India or China. we are so much more alike than we are different that it amazes me
