Having recently discovered that Amarillo, Texas has a surplus of single women, I thought I’d look up some of these women on an online dating service. Here are quotes from some of their profiles:
“My faith is in God. I love Jesus and want to live my life in a way that is pleasing to Him.”
“Love having God in my life. He's helped me through some very tough and scary stuff. Need to know that is a priority in my potential match. At least the believing in Him part!”
“I have a relationship with Jesus, not a religion. I would never date a non-believer. I am seeking a godly man who loves the Lord and seeks to please Him with his life.”
“I also love music and children, worshiping the Lord Jesus Christ, and spending time with my family."
"I love GOD.”
“I simply believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God he came, died for our sins, rose from the dead, and now sits at the right hand of the Father God. And He will return one day.”
It seems that in order to date a woman in Amarillo, Texas, you need to love God and Jesus, or at least be willing to pretend that you do.
You also have to love other people’s kids, because nearly all these women have at least two of them.
Besides these two flaws, they seem like nice people.

In contrast, if you find a Manhattan woman’s dating profile that says anything about religion, it is likely to say something like:
“I have been becoming more spiritual with age and believe in the power of the universe.”
I think that’s code-speak for believing in the post-Christian goddess of Mother Nature religion. Yuck! I think it's easier to deal with Jesus. At least Jesus is a Republican.
