    I find that specific catholic trait to be really really really really bad, if truely used just for its convenience. :P

    I was raised by a hardcore atheist (mother) and someone who never defined his own spiritual beliefs or if he even has any (father) and wasn't even allowed into churches or to be friends with religious people when I was a kid, so of course the ritualistic nature and patterns of certain religious faiths fascinates the heck out of me. I would loooooove to attend a midnight mass. Bet I'd be more into it than most of the real religious people!

    Setianism or Luciferianism.
    I value individuality, freedom and knowledge.

    Thanks. I look forward to being a lapsed Catholic!

    Get ready to stand up and kneel a lot, especially when it doesn't make any sense. That was my first shock when I went to a Catholic service. And don't forget to bring some coins for the collection plate like I did three weeks ago...

    I like Catholicism a lot, though. It's fun. I want to try out my 1st soprano vocals with this neat Catholic choir where I live -- the music is gorgeous! Mozart's mass... *sigh* and more! I hope I get in!!!

    Nope, I used to be anti-religion.

    I was raised a staunch Jehovah's Witness. I had my reasons to hate religion after I left that group. Personally, I felt religion was poisonous.

    Now I don't care what religion someone is... And I'm far less judgmental about religion.

    I would stay none religious. Since in this case you would know that God actually exists.
    Also you would know that all religions lead to pretty much same outcome.
    So, why I would choose anything?
    In the case you are forced the entire thing loses its point.


    Once the God is a proven fact there is no more such a thing as belief.
    The only thing that stays open here is what the God will actually do with you.

    But as I have said before : Living a aferlife with a human mind can't be a good outcome.
    Why I claim that is a long story.


    Conclusion: I can't relate to the question.

    Catholicism obviously, although I tend more towards the French flavour of it.

    Kangirl, if you're going to attend mass, make sure it's a Tridentine mass - aka traditional Latin mass.

    Here's a nice video which may interest you:

    The music is Sanctus VIII from Missa de Angelis(Mass of Angels).

    If also you're interested, here's a wonderful rendition of the entire Missa de Angelis from an Italian parish.

    Whatever Christian denomination or sect thinks the most important thing in Christianity is trusting Jesus, think the belief of original sin is a sin, think Matthew 5:44 is the most important sentence in the bible, and thinks the only acceptable sources of doctrine is the bible.

    If the requirement of the above can't be met, I not sure they can as most Protestants from my understanding believe in original sin to some degree, then it will have to be Buddhism.
