    My personal religious beliefs aren't part of any recognized/organized religion, probably not even a name for what I believe. Should that restrict my religious rights because there is no church or set rules that I should follow?
    I believe you are confusing the word religion for faith or spirituality.

    But why does it matter either way. I believe in things that, if put together, could be a foundation for a religion (I am just too lazy to bother to either put them all down myself or look into other religions enough to find one that matches mine enough).

    Also, does everyone need to completely abide by every tenet of a religion that they claim to belong to? Is it not possible for people to say, "well this religion is the one that I feel most comfortable in or that most matches the majority of what I believe. I don't believe these parts of this religion, but the rest all fits and no one else is closer."?

    Eh, I kinda thought that the cast of Jersey Shore may already be following a different branch of your religion

    What do you call it? It's tempting...

    I think he was asking to get a better idea of his religious stance, not that a name would mean anything else.

    I agree but you are talking about major tenets specifically mentioned. So to say you are Christian, and not believe in the divinity Christ (for example) would mean you are not a Christian. Many situations like this would probably exist with many different religions.

    Who says it matters? I asked what his religion was.

    Oh, no I agree with that, which is an important reason that I wouldn't call myself Christian despite believing that Jesus was a real person and being raised Christian, because I can't say that I believe that to be true.

    But when it comes to smaller things, such as whether to believe that homosexuality is right or wrong or marriage should be exclusively between a man and a woman or believing that a person has to abide by certain or all food restrictions of a particular religion, I think that there is some room for movement to be able to claim at the very least, a major religion, such as Christianity, without subscribing to a specific denomination within that major religion, such as Baptist or Methodist.
