How many different religions are in your family? Just curious :)

I am a Christian, but not a traditional Christian. I have many beliefs that fall into other religions beliefs. My husband is a Christian, not very "religious" but has traditional Christian views.
My mom is Agnostic (though was a fundamentalist when I was growing up). My dad is Catholic, but only converted 2 years ago and he and my mom were already divorced, he was never religious growing up, his mother was a non observant Jew.
Both my sisters and their husbands are Christians one is AOG the other Episcopalian. I have a Buddhist cousin and an Atheist cousin.
My in-laws are AOG

  • My parents and in-laws are both gone, but accounting for their families and our immediate family, at least ten. Most of them are varying flavors of Christian - Catholic, non-denom, congregational, etc. One whole section of my in-law's family is pastors and youth pastors and they work with 2 associated congregations, regular church and biker church.

  • We are all Jewish, some more observant than others. Even those who are agnostic or don't really like organized religion identify as Jewish.
