State your religion preference. Then say something nice about another.

    You can be as general or specific as you wish. Humor is also fine.

    I'll start.

    On any given day, I oscillate between atheist and agnostic. I believe most Christians are good of heart.

      Preference: None.
      Christianity hasn't burned any witches for a while. At least in the developed world. big_smile

      I am a Norse pagan, but if it wasn't for my Methodist relatives I wouldn't know a thing about making good southern fried chicken! Mm, mm, mmmm!

      I call myself agnostic, but agnostic christian would probably be more accurate. I've been fascinated by Jews since as long as I can remember. I can trace it back to reading about a potato knish. It just sounds like such a cool name to come up with for a dish made with spuds.

              Nice to see you breaking a commandment. Let me guess - they don't apply to you? wink

                What commandment is that?

                The commandment that says we should love a mean, unfair God who only keeps us around as experiments?

                Is there a commandment that says we shall not fight for truth and against lies?

                    Name it.

                    ( …actually, I don't think you, RA, and I are allowed to be here. I think we better just go… this thread is for niceness… I'm sorry, Parry.)

                    PS I like my religion that says God brought us here for fun and creativity, joy and eventual Bliss.
                    Your religion explaining you are a lab rat is good too. I like it just fine... as long as it pertains to you and not me.

      I was born and raised a Catholic, but my religious expressions do not always coincide with Catholic or Christian doctrine or dogma. I appreciate all good natured people regardless of their religious preference. I like diversity, and it is not about tolerance or coexistence; it is about how we all compliment each other. Hey, it is what it is, regardless of what we believe, so there is a bit of the agnostic there, but where I do coincide with Christianity is the reality of Christ in my life - its a personal thing. Anyway, it is what it is, and whatever it is, its a beautiful thing.

      I am a New Ager however I find agnostics and atheists to be superbly logical, emphasizing practical, everyday humanism in the service and elevation of humankind. I find Unitarians and Universalists one of the coolest and most open minded people around.   I find Nones(people with no specific religious belief) to be simply.........AWESOME!

    I don't have a religion. I think all of them have a little bit of the truth.

    I am a Wiccan witch and a Wysard (a Deist path descended from the Druids and court magicians of Europe).

    I also enjoy going to Gospel churches on occasion for the lovely singing.

    Although there are many whack jobs out there in ALL religions, it is my belief that most people want to do and be good and decent.
