It seems to me that for the majority of people (in the US, anyway) seem to have a black/white dichotomy when it comes to religous belief: Either you believe in the god presented in the Abrahamic faiths *or* you're an atheist.
It completely misses the whole spectrum of possible beliefs, theologies, etc. I know that not everyone sees things this way, but I wam surprised at how much I hear things that indicate this way of looking at these matters. Christians often espouse the belief that anyone not Christian is by default an atheist, even if they don't realize it. Even atheists will sometimes say, "Well, I couldn't believe in that view of god..." as if that was the only alternative to atheism. It's just so ingrained in our society, I suppose, that either/or perspective.
What is your opinion?
