Are there any religions that aren't the typical religions we hear about day to day? Are there more that we don't here much about?

If so what do they believe?

  • www.religioustolerance.org is another great resource. Most people don't even know how many denominations of Christianity there are let alone other religions of the world. There's so much information out there and so many beautiful belief systems! It can boggle the mind, but in a good way :) I don't think there's enough time in a day to go over any of them here though, sorry, LOL!

  • I hate to say this, but one of the different religions is the Jehovahs Witnesses. I didn't believe in them at first until I went to a Kingdom Hall Meeting. It was very different. Actually it made me want to be there. I wasn't bored,to the point of falling asleep. The elder who gave a TALK, not a loud screaming yelling preaching, but a gentle talk where everyone participated. Seemed like everyone there was very happy and smiling. The childern even acted nice, and polite. They all seemed so happy like I had never seen in a Church. I feel in love that day, with God and Jesus, and the word of God. It REALLY made my HEART HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Groovyflor: I'm a Unitarian Universalist (UU) too. OP: it is a great church to learn about lots of different beliefs... some UU churches are more traditional/Chrsitian than others.
