    Dark Pagan and Luciferian. I worship Lucifer.
    *waves* she ain't the only one here that's diabolical. Hail to the Lightbringer, Lucifer, giver of knowledge. Nope not interested in the Holy ghost. My deities are too caring for that.

    Religion:

    Christianity in my case, Catholicism in particular. However, I am very ecumenical and always have felt comfortable visiting other faiths. Since I'm an anthropologist who had taught a comparative religions course, I have visited many different places of worship and have always felt comfortable there. My main "mentor" on this is Gandhi followed by fellow anthropologist Joseph Campbell.

    Catholic Christian. Varying degrees of devotion and observance over the years, from cultural to nominal to on fire to doubting. Currently limping along at rote speed.

    I have questioning down to a fine art, but I can't say the same about answering.;)

    Bompu Zen. Think of it as Wild Fox Zen or Common Zen.

    No scripture, no dogma to follow.

    Just applying Zazen techniques and allowing whatever to come out of the woodwork, and noticing the results while going forward in this particular lifespan.

    It's basically sit and learn with all 'errors and mistakes' intact as you continue on a path among many.

    I have to ask. Your bio says you are a "naturalistic" Catholic. I'm curious what you mean by this.

    An X-Jehovah's Witness
    Religion as a system is for me nothing.
    Religion as a belief in a controlling power is for me a ridiculous notion.
    Religion as the worship* of a personal God is something that worries me.
    Religion as a belief in something superhuman is something that I think of a lot and have some respect for.

    Other? I suppose so. I shall vote for other.


    *What is worship?

    According to the proper definition of the term, I'd fit under occultism; left hand path.

    Religion:
    Hebrew Roots
    I never know what to call myself, I don't fit under any particular label or "denomination." I usually say sort of like Hebrew Roots just as a point of reference, but that's still not exactly correct. I believe in Jesus/Yeshua like Christians, but differ in some areas, such as believing he didn't do away with the Torah, etc. That's pretty vague I guess, I'm basically just a very conservative believer in both the tanach and new testament and try to follow those as closely as I know how :)
