    Religion

    I'm simply curious the religious break up of DP. The poll only allows 10 options so I apologize if I left yours out. Also, I'm keeping the poll private for those who do not wish to disclose their religious background.

    Atheist.
    But I can appreciate religion's role in mankind's history.

    Re: Religion

    I'm not sure and completely confused.

    I was raised as a non practicing christian for a large portion of my childhood until we found out we were partially ethic Jews.
    We then went started to experience more Jewish culture and it has grown on to me.

    I've considered becoming a full on Jew religiously (probably reform Judaism) but I'm not sure if I can give up some of the christian beliefs.

    I'm torn on it at the moment.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Re: Religion

    I don't practice anything specifically but If I have to be labeled I would fall under Unitarian.

    If you've never been to a Unitarian Universalist church I would highly recommend it. It's great to see Muslims, Buddhists, Christians, etc. come under one roof and discuss the similarities between their specific religious interpretations of the same god.

    Re: Religion

    Ah, sorry. I didn't know it would post until I was done creating the poll!

    In any manner, you can still vote.

    I was raised going to fundamental Baptist and Evangelical churches. I even went to elementary school at my church. My parents were never pushy about the whole religious thing, though. I attended public middle and am attending a public high school. Since then, I have come to disagree with what I was taught as a young boy. I now don't follow in any category of the poll besides 'other'. I like a lot of philosophy, Taoist though, and I believe in the beauty of nature. I cannot call myself atheist, since I certainly believe in some ideologies. I believe that my schooling in a Christian learning environment shaped my interests. Currently, I'm in high school, but I want to major in anthropology in college, specifically the religious aspect.

    Re: Religion

    I am a Christian, but not fundamentalist about it. I think that many of the stories in the bible are meant more for lessons and morals, than literal happenings/events.

    Re: Religion

    Muslim but not crazy type religious Muslim, i tend to be dismissive of texts in both the Qu'ran and hadiths which contradict science. I am a secularist as well.

    Re: Religion

    Run of the mill non-denominational Christian.

    Growing up and as a young man I ran the full circle of religion. I studied many different religions, was even atheist and agnostic at times.

    Saw to many things that pointed to a force greater than myself and believe it is the Judo Christian God.
