  • That I don't believe in any God because I choose not to follow any holy books or so-called prophets. Being a theist with no religious convictions is just weird, I guess.

  • I am a Christian, I believe God sacrificed his son, Jesus Christ, to cover my sins with His blood. What great love He has for His children is beyond our comprehension. If we would trust and follow what is written in the Holy Bible, we would surely be a blessed people. The choice is yours to make, there is Heaven and there is Hell.

  • Susan, Where was the misconception in all that? You just came in and stated your beliefs... What is it that people are misunderstanding about your beliefs? You never said...

  • I worship Satan. I sadcrifice animals. I dance around naked in the woods, probably after ingesting some "natural" hallucinogen. I'm a raw foods vegan, tree-hugging, dirt worshipper that hasn't cottoned to the concept of a hairbrush, soap or deodorant.

    I wear lots of flowy garments (either tiedye or all black, depending who you ask), lots of crystals, never use "real" medicine or doctors, and I don't like shoes.

    I hate the system, Christians, the government, modern medicine, and "the establishment" in all forms.


    And yeah, I've heard all of those stereotypes at some point, in varying combinations.

  • That we're all xenophobic, bigoted, homophobic, closed minded, ignorant, and pushy. We all hate gays (I happen to support them) and Muslims (Islam has a very special place in my heart), believe everyone else is going to hell (I don't believe in hell), are at odds with science (I believe science and faith are complimentary), know nothing about other faiths and only believe misconceptions (I'm constantly studying other religions, and not in order to discredit them, but out of a genuine interest and fascination), and are on a mission to convert everyone else because our way is the only "right" way (I believe there are many ways to understand and relate to God).

    I'm a Christian, lol. A Christian Universalist. :)
