  1. Hmmmm.... That's actually a hard question. I believe in the ideals of Buddhism and try my best to be truthful, caring, understanding, helpful, etc. I think that is the ideal of every religion. So I suppose I am religious but to pretty much all religions that believe in goodness, equality and love.

    1. Elephant's child, I had a close friend who worried that she wasn't a Christian and that she did not have any religion. She was the kindest sweetest soul I ever knew and I told her she reflected faith more than anyone I've ever met.

  3. I'm a lapsed catholic. Take a look at my commie pope and can you question my lack of faith? I just live a good and honest life.

    1. Goodness kindness honesty and caring sounds like a good religion to me

  4. This is a loaded question. Everyone seems to have an opinion of what a Christian is and what one believes and how that should translate in behavior. Just like all Christians are sinners, all of those opinions are wrong at some point. My faith tells me that I am found in Him (Christ), not having a righteousness of my own, but that righteousness that is of God by faith in Christ, Philippians 3:9. That does not mean that I live a perfect sinless life or that I live a life as based on the expectations of what anyone's opinion of what the Christian life should look like.

    1. That's the difference in faith and religion. Faith is in our hearts and religion is in our mind

  6. I'm a practicing Christian, but I wouldn't call myself religious, but I do try very hard to follow God's word, but of course fail often.

  7. i love many of the rituals of the Eastern orthodox, so that makes me a person who enjoys religion (but not the politics of any particular denomination). My life is not practiced as a religion, but a faith, to be lived every moment. The heart shown in kindness, caring and serving, as best as i can, is the important part,

  8. I have and always have had faith and I pray every day.
    I feel God's presence and not wishing to sound blasphemous I also feel my late husband's presence.

  9. No, I'm a lapsed Catholic, but I believe in God and conduct my life in ways that I'd like to be treated. I don't want to get political here, but Pope Francis isn't helping me connect with the faith. I think he's a commie and I think commies are supremely misguided in their beliefs.

  10. LL Cool Joe, sometimes I think religion sets us all up for failure so we can feel guilty a lot.
