Are you still in the religion you were born into?

Just wondering how many have experienced practicing more than one religion in their lifetimes...

  • No. I was born into a non-practicing Christian family (I can remember going to Sunday School as a kid, but we were 'Christmas and Easter' Christians at best.) I had my own ideas about God as a child and can remember being shocked as a teen when I started researching Christianity and found out that it was NOTHING like what I had instinctively thought it was about. Now as an adult I am a Buddhist. Realistically this fit my philosophy all along, I just didn't have a label for it for years.

  • No. I was born and raised Catholic and left the church when I was about 16. My family and I have been visiting many churches in our area and have found one Christian church that we really like. Some of the other churches we visited were Presbyterian, Episcopal, Baptist, non-denominational, Methodist.
