I was raised Catholic, but now attend an evangelical Presbyterian church. I've had many many experiences with different churches. I had to shop and see what suited me and my family. Our pastor is a gifted teacher!
My son: "Mom? Don't you have a butt to fix?"
Raised Catholic but not exactly practicing. I do believe in the basics though.
My pop always claimed that he had, "stump religion". If he wanted to talk to God, he would sit on a stump and talk to him. I follow along those same religious beliefs.
My wife and I attend a Baptist church, that has one helluva preacher. He delivered the service at my pop's funeral on 13 May. I can honestly say that it's the only funeral service I've ever been to, where the mourners laughed, during the service. He knew exactly how to celebrate pop's life and has made me feel closer to God than any other preacher I've ever known.
I'm the lackey/master kazoo player for the master of the universe, our fine Captain.
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.
I go to a Baptist church, though frankly my attendence this year has been more off than on due to various problems and distractions.
I do take my beliefs very seriously and try very hard to live by them.

Although I picked atheist/agnostic. I am actually what is called Apatheist. Gods lack of existence does not matter to me and the presence or popularity of religion does not affect me.

Because I'm a pain in the ass, I selected the obligatory "other."
I was baptized, raised and confirmed Catholic, but I haven't been in a Church since I was 18 except for weddings and funerals.
I hit a point around then that I decided I didn't know if there's a god or not, and that I didn't really care. I'm not sure if that qualifies as agnostic.
Aside from that, I've been leaning pretty heavily in the direction of the Tao for a while now.
I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.
Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)
