Perhaps the most important thing in community is that it helps us to raise our children. If this is true, as I believe it is, then I would want every adult in my Cohousing group to be a someone that I would be actively happy about having my children spend time with him or her. People who value diversity very highly, probably want their children to experience diversity as a part of their everyday environment and interact with people who value diversity. People who highly value certain religious beliefs and practice (perhaps for example saying grace before a meal) will want these things integrated into their community life in a way that non-believers (or believers in other things) will not want to participate in. While I am not a good candidate for a Christian cohousing group, I applaud such a group for being sufficient explicit about its goal so as to allow people who are unlikely to be comfortable in such to pre-select themselves out in an efficient manner. /Russell (member of, but not a spokesman for, Peninsula Regional Cohousing (PERCH)) brand [at] responsible.com
