I was raised Catholic, pretty much the same way I raised my children - grounded in ritual when I was very young, but ignoring much of the dogma as I matured.

Despite the monolithic hierarchy, the Catholic church is largely local. We never paid much attention to the bishops. The nuns were another story.

Agnostic means to be unsure of any kind of Almighty Existence; saying neither yes nor no and being ambivalent.

BrandonUptown, care to tell us your religion and perhaps share the reason you asked?

Im a Christian, more specific, methodist. I am interested in religon, and what other people think. I think it's very cool to try to understand why people believe what they do.

Gnostic....j/k

I believe in Christ and accept him as our savior.

I don't follow any organized religion, but the way I see it, somebody or something put us all here, and created everything. I suspect we mere mortals cannot even begin to comprehend it, much the way an ant will never figure out nuclear physics.

Dutch Reformed/Protestant.

I refer to it as "Relaxed Catholic".

All the Faith, half the Dogma!

And then I took what I learned there and made my own decisions.

My sister started bringing her kids to a Lutheran church in her town instead of the Catholic church because, as she says, "all the perks without the guilt." Calls it "Catholic Lite".
