    You are religious? What's your religious orientation?
    I'll answer first: yes, I am. I am Spiritual Satanist (no, Spiritual Satanism is not about crazy people who kill animals,abouth death, listening black metal and other bad things like these....it's about human spirit, meditations, yoga, etc. It's like Hinduism, with some differences. I'll continue to be a Spiritual satanist because this cult defends LGBT, they say that homosexuals, transsexuals, bisexuals and transsexuals were very important in ancient society).
    I'm waiting for your answers and for your questions, too.(if you have) :grin:

    Yes.

    I'm Christian/Buddhist.

    As for others beliefs, I try to keep an open mind and am not afraid to debate the underpinnings of a said philosophy. I do believe in absolute truth, however.

    Hello,

    I'm a quasi-Christian. For religion to be a religion it has to be a belief in God, but I don't believe in God, I believe in Jesus. I also think that a lot of what in the Bible happened, but science can now explain them [so it's no longer a miracle]. Whilst the religion itself speaks against LGBT+, I find most individuals supporting or at least not-discriminatory towards LGBT+. I also think the Pope [of 1302] got it wrong about Levictus 20:13, because they're selfish people who just wanted to benefit their own ends.

    Anyway, that's me.

    No, not at all.
    Although I do have Catholics and Buddhists in my family though.

    I'm a Buddhist, though no one in my family is, as they are all atheists.

    Yup. I come from an atheist background (as in secular culture), but I somehow managed to stumble through the bushes into the garden of Eden, and many other gardens also! I'm multireligious. I most closely follow Taoism. Others I follow strains of include Hinduism and Christianity. I am a very open-minded person and a pretty heavy knowledge skeptic, so in a way I don't fully "accept" any notion of any religion, (or science or whatever really). I just kind of... contemplate. And synthesize a bit.

    I'm leaning towards being a Naturalistic Pagan. I don't view the gods as literal beings, but symbols and metaphors to the stories they're rooted in. I still agree with the philosophies and creeds with other systems like Buddhism, Bokononism, Wicca, and Satanism though, something I doubt will ever change.

    Here's more on that if anyone is interested: Naturalistic Paganism FAQ, by Jon Cleland Host | Humanistic Paganism

    I believe in some Christian values still but I am appalled at how the "persecuted" have become the persecutors.

    So... I'm not denominational anymore. Also pedophile priests also seem a bit hypocritical to protect.

    I'm also probably not someone the church would openly accept in congregation.

    I'm non-conformist Christian. I don't find it really conflicts with my lifestyle or beliefs (although my church is possibly the most laid back church in terms of values). My belief is that it's much more about the personal relationship with Jesus, and one of the biggest misconceptions I run into is that I worship a book. Obviously I struggle with faith sometimes, but it's the only thing that keeps me happy so I guess it's worth it.

    No. I'm pretty much agnostic. I'm not even sure if there is an afterlife, if there is an afterlife, hopefully its reincarnation and I'm not born a dude two times in a row lol.

    Unitarian Universalist / athiest. More spiritual than religious, really. UUism is really open and accepting, so it's nice to have a community and some unifying beliefs without fear of rejection for my gender or sexuality.
