    I wasn’t sure how to vote, because Methodists are Protestant, and Protestant is a version of Christianity, so I qualify for all three! I voted Methodist though…

    I voted for Athiest.  FYI-a lot of your options fall under “Christianity” so it might be hard for some people to vote for only one option.

    @Gemstone:  same… I’m not sure Baptist is a religion but there are a few options which are all under Christianity. 

     It’s been a while since I was in the church at all, mainly due to school and the driving distance to the nearest church. I would say I am a Christian, though.

    @MadameTussaud:  I understand, just wanted to warn you that it will skew the numbers a bit. 😉

    You could put “non-denominational” Christian (which is what I identify with) since a lot of the religions are also considered to be Christian.  And maybe add some pagan categories as well?  Some identify with Wicca or other pagan beliefs . . .

    @SimplyChic11:  Methodism is a denomination, as is Baptist. Both Protestant and both Christian. 🙂

    I’m atheist. I was born and raised Catholic (even went to Catholic school) but since being able to formulate my own opinions on the matter, I’m a non-believer.

    I agree with PP; the poll is going to be skewed since you have so many different Christian denominations listed, as well as “christianity” as a whole. Seems odd to do, but nothing to be done now that people are voting, I suppose.

    FWIW, I voted atheist, and FH is other (he’s a cross between non-denominational Christianity & Judaism).

    I’m an Atheist, but I’d like to point out a little semantic thing with this list as well. Atheism isn’t a religion. It’s a lack of belief in a higher power.

    @MadameTussaud:  Well, “other” should cover it.  Smile
