What Religion Are You?


#1

I thought this might provoke interesting discussion, and I was curious as to the demographics of this site.

As for me, Christian (Protestant).

I thought this was interesting:


#2

I am the 5.84%!


#3

I am the 14.09%!


#4

Wanna go Atheist? Just read the Bible.

I’m more spiritual than religious. I don’t believe in orthodox religions. I don’t believe in using fear and prayer and God to build Churches and to raise money. I also hate how religious doctrine forces people to do things that they might not even know they don’t want to do. I believe traditions are important but sometimes the churches need to grow up. That doesn’t happen as much as I would like. There a lot of things I do not like about the Church doctrine and I think it could be and should be done much more different than what it currently is all about. I know all churches are different and yada yada but I am talking in a general sense of the hierarchy. I do not believe Jesus would be thrilled with how his message is being brought out today.

That being said, I still go to church and I still pray. I just do it and interpret it in my own way.

I am of the Mahayana branch. Those in the Theravada branch are the closest thing you would get to “religious” in Buddhism.


#7

Catholic, and I support the Crusades, and the Inquisition.


#8

Religious genocide is nothing to be proud of JStang…:wink:

You need to stop dropping by like that. It is scaring me to no end.


#12

Other way around for me. Now are you in this thread to contribute, or just to troll?

[/quote] Yer entitled to your views the same as me.


#15

I am claiming part of the 14.09% minority in the chart. Being said, I’m just as old school in certain social aspects as Judeo-Christians are.


#16

Wanna read the bible and understand it in its true context means to be a Christian.
As for me I was baptized a melkite (Greek Catholic), and recieved communion into the Roman Catholic Church

I am currently reading the Bible through at the rate of 3 times a year. It is strengthening my Christian faith. I have been a Christian for almost 66 years, and the more I read the Bible, the more it builds me up. I am still puzzled about some of the things I read in the Bible, but I can’t expect to know everything.

There is much wisdom in what you say, and I am similarly turned off by much of what man practices as organized religion (although don’t forget that the great tradition of organized service- to the poor, to educate the young, to comfort the sick - derives directly from the efforts of organized religion. )

What sucks about organized religion is the proselytizing, and the tendancy to want to force certain religious dogma as part of the secular law. But I can see the good in most all religions (or religiously minded people,even those who mock), even as I agree with you that spirituality is the key, and the goal is, as that old country song says, to have a satisfied mind. And as for me, if I am asked to name my faith, I am from a Christian tradition and I believe in Jesus Christ.

TBH I am surprised that I haven’t already been castrated for my comments by some of the more religious right on here. I mean every time I have ever participated on another religious thread, I am kicked off for being an “atheist.” I wonder where the religious right bible thumping people are. Why are they afraid of this thread?
