Your religious affiliation

Post by LushMojo » Tue Nov 27, 2012 3:21 pm

Del just mentioned something in the "Catholics and tobacco" thread about having trouble keeping up with who hails from what religious/denominational background. I have the same problem and wondered if we have a thread/list for that. If one exists please point me to it. Otherwise, copy the list into your response (so one doesn't have to read page by page).


Feel free to add your moniker and be as specific as you like; although simply putting "Christian" might defeat the purpose of the thread. I'm honestly interested in how each of us identifies specifically. I'm sure others are as well. Pagans, atheists, agnostics - please add your info as well.

EDIT - to include latest list in first post.

Joshoowah - United Methodist (baptized in a Baptist church in 2003, switched to UM 2005)
jruegg - United Methodist (raised United Methodist, baptized at 13, grew up seeing how 'Christians' treated others and didn’t want anything to do with that, God got a hold of me in 2001 during a men’s retreat, diligently studied the various Christian traditions in college searching for Truth, ended up back in United Methodist church [the "radical center" theologically speaking])
JudgeRusty -Southern Baptist, but probably more open minded than they prefer

It would be helpful if the Orthodox brothers and sisters would specify their specific rites and patriarchy. (Not that we're planning a paintball raid upon the gazebo, or anything.)
