    I’m Catholic (have had the first 4 sacraments) and my Fiance was raised Catholic, but was only Baptized and had First Eucharist (not Confirmed).

    We will be having a Catholic wedding, though.

    @BoiledPNut: Did you see the thread a while back about whether or not there’s a stigma against atheists? I think that a lot of us don’t advertise our atheism or even hide it because of the way people often react.

    Raised catholic, grew up to became an atheist. It’s difficult with my parents cause they’re catholic and don’t support/understand my beliefs (or lack of).

    I’m Christian, but also more specifically (as Drangonfly put it) I am Mormon. 

    🙂

    Also, I was raised Episcopalian.

    @Lemma, I’m sure my reply was confusing and contradictory. I don’t have one “set in stone” belief system, simply because I don’t believe anyone has the right to say what is correct and what isn’t, and the universe is so expansive that there is no way to begin to guess what is true and what isn’t. Sometimes I believe one way and other times I believe the other way, but I have never tried to combine them into one thing, nor do I want to.  Everyone needs to find what works for them personally, regardless of how anyone else will take it. For that reason, a large number of people choose to keep their beliefs to themselves and not advertise them in any way since it only creates arguments and clashes on who is right and who isn’t otherwise.

    @regberadaisy: I think believing in something greater but not really knowing in what is called agnostic, but not sure.

    @Lemma: I know what you mean, I’m not ashamed or my atheism but some people are just rude when you say you don’t believe in god, so sometimes it’s better not to say anything, mostly cause I know I might end up saying something hurtful. I always remember when Pierce Morgan interviewed Penn Jillete (from Penn&Teller), he was extremely offensive to him just cause he said he didn’t believe in god.

     

    just want to say, at least in México, Christians and Catholics are two different churches. Catholics are Christians as they believe in Christ but there’s a separate Christian church, that’s why I didn’t find the poll odd.

    I believe there is but one living and True God, an infinite, all knowing Spirit, perfect in all His attributes, one in essence, eternally existing in three persons- the Father, Son and Holy Spirit-each equally deserving worship and obedience.

    @Lemma: No, I didn’t see that.  It’s sad, though, that people are treated differently because of that.  Everyone should be free to believe or not believe what they want.  I think we could ALL learn from each other.

    @Lemma, I’m not offended so no need to apologize. Everyone has their own beliefs and no one is right or wrong. But since we don’t have concrete proof on what is in the world (or out of it), it’s ok to change your mind on what you believe. Some groups think that’s not ok and others don’t really care. It’s what works for you, not others.

    @Coffee cup: I know it’s hard, but I do wish that more of us were willing to risk that in order to be honest about who we are. Don’t you respect Penn for going through that? Freedom of religion should go both ways and as the poll shows, there are lots of us out there!

    I am a Christian and so is my Fiance. I recently moved to the area so we have been visiting various churches ( he is from Church of Christ background while I was raised Southern Baptist) but we are leaning more towards a non denominational church that we both really like. We dont get stuck on the denominations as much, but pay attention to the message if that makes sense.

    @Lemma: Ohh I thought he was awesome already but he made an awesome point in that interview. Like I said I’m not ashamed of my beliefs but my culture’s extremely religious and everyone and their mother’s catholic so I just keep my mouth shot, also my mom get offended everytime I mention it.
