  • Why not? Good business sense and ethics don't come with specific religious beliefs...

  • Unless this is for a church or a Christian charity, religion should never come up in the workplace. In fact, it's illegal to discriminate against someone for their religious beliefs.

  • Totally Agree with all PP's...I have a very successful team of people, and I can tell you right up front they come from everywhere, all walks of life, believers, non-believers, and more.
    To each his own, work and Religion do not mix, so dont try to make them.

  • Absolutely! Race, sexuality, religious views, and political views are no reasons as to why someone should or should not become business partners. Good things may come out of being a business partner with a non-believer. Just be open minded!

  • Judge not, lest ye be judged. You can't write this person off just because they don't have the same religious beliefs as you do! You never know how someone may touch your life (and you, theirs!)
