  • I'm Catholic. I know a lot about different protestantism beliefs (once saved always saved, faith alone) and their founders. All that falls under the Christianisty umbrella, though.

    I know a lot about Mormonism and Jehovah's Witnesses; I don't consider them Christian because they don't use the triune Baptism formula that Jesus prescribed.

    A know a lot about paganism of the Lakota Native American tribe, but not too much about other paganisms.

    I'm familiar with Islam (aren't the women pretty when they wear a hijab?), and I probably know more of Judiasm than I realize.

    I think I know very little about Hinduism (I have a Ghandi quote on my fridge) and Buddism but probably know more than I realize cuz I answered questions those correctly on the PewForum quiz.

  • I know some about Buddhism, and a little about Christianity, and a little about Muslim, but that's it!! I know the least about everything else.

  • I know quite a bit about Islam. I think I know least about Paganism, I guess. I'm pretty well read on most of the religions of the world, but because Paganism is such a diverse kind of faith there's not much about it in my World Religion books. :)

    I'm a Christian Universalist btw.

  • I'm Pagan, but I probably know the most about Christianity (besides my own). I would like to learn more about a lot of religions, but my top two that I want to learn more about are Islam and Hindu. After that, I would really like to learn more about Voodoo because it's always interested me a lot.

  • im Christian and i probably know the most about Shinto b/c i lived in Japan for a number of years and its always fascinated me. the purification rituals, the importance of ancestors, and their festivals...all stuff i saw on a daily basis.

    i know the least about Scientology cause they dont allow outsiders to really learn much about it and i cant just cant find any information that doesnt read as biased (for and against).

  • I studied Christianity for many years - I used to own about 15 different versions of the Bible and many other Christian texts. I studied with a Jehovah's Witness for a couple years because I found they were very, very familiar with the Bible. I also had a wonderful study Bible gifted to me by friends that I enjoyed. I also studied alot of Wicca and Goddess stuff and participated in pagan (groups of mostly Wicca/Goddess followers, a Druid, etc.) rituals and groups. I taught religious education in a UU church - which touches on as many faiths as possible - to both children and adults for several years.

  • I know the least about Islam probably - I wasn't exposed to it for a long time although a good friend of mine who practiced taught me a little. That and Shinto - and some more obscure religions...

  • Buddhism and Catholicism. I am slowly working on learning more about Shintoism and Islam,.
