This is more of a personal question, but undoubtedly applicable for anyone in my situation.

I am a Noachide, and I will not convert to Judaism any time soon because the obligation upon men is way too burdensome for me to handle, to the point where I could not honestly convert with a clean conscious, knowing full well that I would have every intention to skip every morning prayer. (They drive me insane and make me extremely depressed and bored, while subsequently being angry at myself that I hate and despise them.)

Trouble is, there is no community of Noachides that I can find, and I am getting up there in age, and without a community, there are no mates. The first law in the Torah is given to all mankind, to be fruitful and multiply, and so I am getting really angry at myself for not fulfilling this commandment.

And the problem with the Jewish Community is that I obviously can not be marrying Jewish girls, because again; I could never be an honest convert, and I would assume that is a prohibition for Jewish Women, so I would not want to be leading them into sin.

Growing up Protestant, I have not set foot in Churches since I found out that it is considered idolatry (although I think most Christians today would detest the idea of using a cross as an idol, but that is neither here nor there). As a result, I have no community to speak of, and it is kind of killing me inside. I left behind my Protestant community a long time ago, and the odds of running into a good woman on the streets is virtually nil.

So I was thinking to myself: I am a Noachide, how about starting to attend an Orthodox Christian Church, so maybe I could actually find a good G-d-fearing woman?

And if that is prohibited, what other choices do I have in an increasingly secular society?

    An Orthodox Christian church probably would not reap any woman better than one from a Protestant congregation. – ezra May 21 '17 at 6:27

Seattle, Washington has a number of Noachides. There was an active community that I was involved with in the past. It may still be active today.
