    I was Baptisted as a Roman Catholic but since I believe in Gay Rights, the death penalty and a whole host of other issues I by definition am not a Catholic. I just acknowledge that God exists.

    What defines a Catholic for you?

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24

    No worries. We won't tell your pastor.

    Re: What is your religion?

    I was raised Catholic (although we attended Southern Baptist Churches a lot). My wife was raised Southern Baptist. When we married we compromised on Episcopalian.

    Now I am somewhere between agnostic and Christian. I would categorize myself as a Jeffersonian Christian more than anything else. If that makes any sense.

    I would like to be more certain in my beliefs. I envy those who are strong in their faith. It's just that for me, reason raises too much doubt and I am unable to set aside reason.

    Protestant background. I haven't attended church regularly in a long time, but I'm steadfast in my beliefs. I've seen God at work in too many people's lives, including m own, to doubt He exists.

    Re: What is your religion?

    After reading this thread a clarification is in order.

    If you are certain that God does not exist, then you are an Atheist.

    If you believe that whether or not God exists or not is ultimately unknowable, then you are Agnostic.

    If you believe that a higher power does exist, but the nature of that higher power is either unknown or unknowable, then you are a Deist.

    Most people on the thread so far that say they are Agnostic are actually more Deist than anything else.

    I usually split with them on political issues as well.

    Re: What is your religion?

    By the way, why does the poll above indicate two votes for Sunni Muslim, but only one user name is visible?

    My money is on terrorism.
