    And you're fine with this?

    Heis honest about his reasons for being "religious," the standard nay sayers that are in it for the exact same reason but pretend they are there for altruism, are being dishonest.

    I don't decieve myself. I truly believe in my religion, and I've found that I am more psychologically healthy for it.

    All major religions are (imo) for the weak and/or the ignorant and/or the desperate.

    All of them are complete and utter bunk to me...possibly humanities stupidest inventions.

    Just how big is your cross necklace? Like Ozzy's? Otherwise, dropped into your shirt, it probably doesn't get noticed all that much.

    Good family, six years for a BS degree. Likes to wear white pants. My suggestion would be to start playing more tennis. That's where the "in crowd" of societal upper crust is likely to be found. Go to the courts (grass of course, clay if you must) and soon enough a young, pretty, religious co-ed will ask you if you want to play a few sets.

    After she skunks you in six sets, complain that your limp wrist has been acting up. Hopefully, she'll ask you to her place for some first aid, see your cross, ask you if you love Jesus, and there you are; romance.

    The above is not my style, but I have faith that it will work for you.

    EDIT: As to the poll: I believe.

    Define what you mean by religion.

    Do I believe in God, yes. Do I believe as taught by some organized "church", not really. Do I conform to anything, hell no.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    That is interesting. That is almost exactly the opposite of what I observe in real life.

    Would you say, generally, that (for example) MLK Jr was weak, ignorant, or desperate?

    I briefly took a "confucian approach" to Christianity. I privately rejected the divine aspects, but still participated in and still viewed conservative Christianity as a whole and conservative catholicism in particular as valuable due to its being a source of ethics, very enterwined with western civilization and becasue our nation needs cultural stability and cultural continuity.

    But... then I "reconverted" and I am both a believer and a participant once again.
