Question Two: Interfaith Marriage
Respond to Pickard’s comment that “An interfaith marriage provides an opportunity for each to explore more deeply the practices and beliefs of their own faith and that of their spouse.” Continue your reflection by explaining and analyzing her contention that interfaith marriage actually aids the spiritual development of a married couple. What are some of the reasons that Pickard gives for religious communities and faiths to “frown upon marrying out” of one’s faith? Why does Pickard believe that interfaith couples have much to offer to the conversation about how marriage can be a positive institution in contemporary society? What is your opinion about British Methodist ‘s favorable attitude towards interfaith marriages? What role if any do you believe your church should play in attitudes and practices of marriage and dating? Or, if you do not belong to a church what role do you think that religious institutions in general should play in the conversation? Draw one conclusion or observation from one of the four areas comparing Christianity, Islam and Hinduism: 1 The Purpose of Human Life, 2 Gender Roles, 3 Sexuality and Marriage or 4 Marriage beyond sexual and family/tribal concerns. Do you feel that Christians, Hindus and Muslims can learn from each other’s faith concerning marriage? Do you feel any difference towards a marriage between a Muslim and Jew as opposed to one between a Christian and a Hindu? Conclude with your own opinion on the matter of interfaith dating and marriage. Do you believe traditional marriage should continue and be supported by religions? Include an introduction and conclusion. Share the basis or evidence for your conclusions.
