    I believe many good people are being mislead by organized religion.

    Even so, people of all faiths should be free to follow their hearts as long
    as they do not force their beliefs on others.

    I am a member of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod, born into and raised into. I certainly believe in Jesus Christ as my only means of salvation, though I do not necessarily agree with every fine detail of the LC-MS or any other specific Christian denomination's dogma. I consider myself to be a personal and political conservative, while a social liberal. (Basically, I'm a 'prude' and I believe that the government is best when they don't interfere, but as long as other's actions do not affect my life then they should be allowed to live however they want.)

    This is what pains me the most about Christianity, and Catholicism seems to be the worst at this. The hardest part is not my disagreement with their belief, but that many fellow students at my university reject God solely because the felt cheated or scammed by the church. It seems as though many Christian churches get so wrapped up in proclaiming the nuance of their faith that they forget about the key ingredients of God's unconditional love.

    Atheist, and I never will be anything else. And I certainly don't consider Atheism a religion either, I despise religion.

    Are you referring to belief in the "theology/doctrine" that is portrayed in Star Wars films? :confused:

    What led you to this conclusion?

    I'm agnostic leaning towards the belief in an existent divine force of some kind. What that force may be is beyond me. It's probably perfect (Anselm), it's probably the first cause (Aristotle), it's probably the only thing that doesn't exist contingently (Ibn Sina), and it probably confers all meaning in this world. :)

    I think there's great philosophical evidence for some kind of divinity, but trying to guess what that divinity is, or what it believes, is just silly.

    Not religions. I hate the ideology of religion and its use to make people conform to irrelevant norms and vales and repress people.

    Those who seek wealth and power have always been very clever in the way
    they manipulate the masses.

    I'd recommend reading this thread. Throughout the thread I relate real-world science, questions and circumstances to the Bible and faith in Jesus. ;)

    I have great faith in knowing the difference between the Word Of God
    and the self serving divisive words of men.

    Formally I am a Catholic. Although I have been moved by recent events (the actions of narrow-minded, hypocritical right-wing "Christians") to consider myself more of an independent, non-affiliated believer than part of any religious movement.

    And though I'm not really tempted to re-join any particular religion, Foundationism has a rather obvious appeal to me.

    Well you left out the Religious Society of Friends(Quakers) thats what I consider myself. Although I am more of a holiday Quaker. Our family never really goes to any kind of meeting they are all too far away, so its really more of a belief system for us.

    I have no interest in organised religions. All of them are perversions of a central message and tainted by centuries of humans playing politics. However, I have no problem if people wish to get through life by finding comfort in them. Whatever works for you is my attitude.

    BTW, I was raised as a Union Baptist.

    I'm sorry I thought that the Quakers would fit into the "Christian (Protestant With Denomination Affiliation)" category. :eek:

    On a side note -- I do have respect for the Quakers.

    I am a practicing Catholic who leans heavily toward believing in universalism.
