    I tend to be very spiritual, but I hold great contempt for the vast majority of organized religions.

    I'm a devout Catholic - an assistant minister, soon to be a deacon. I don't believe all the dogmas but find a lot that is great about the church. I love reading the Bible, find it full of great solace, wisdom, hope and depth.

    No religion

    No Dogma...

    into Taoism and the better philosophers of the west.


    Count myself as spiritual in that I see great value in the human response to existence, in art, literature, music, cinema...even mathematics


    Everything good and noble in this life is some form of the humanities... not the deities.

    intensely spiritual and philosophical ... officially last church I was a member of was Presbyterian (USA)

    biggest influences have been the actual teachings of Christ and Prince Gautama

    so would have to say, not into dogma, but I consider and reflect on everything

    I've been thinking about joining The Church of the Perky Attitude, because they serve cocktails after their services.

    I am an atheist. I believe in science. I think religion is dangerous and potentially detrimental. I wish I could open "believer's" eyes.

    I'm also a practitioner of polytheism and idolatry.

    Baptised and confirmed Episcopalian. However, I had qualms with some of the Church's ideology (not just Anglicans, but much of modern Christianity), so I left the Church and would now consider myself to be agnostic.

    i'm an undecided agnostic. i don't even know what dogma is either so i'm sure i don't have it/believe in it/condone it/praise it/etc.

    Born and raised Roman Catholic. When I was 17 I became an atheist.

    My Church's dogma is what led me to become an atheist.
