Just curious as to the percentages of the beliefs on the board. Please vote and bump the thread.

Also, have you faced a lot of misunderstanding pertaining to your religion, or lack of religion? If so, please share your stories, if you feel comfortable doing so. :)

Christian.  More for the faith than the religion.  There are a lot of people that can't tell the two apart or think they're one and the same.  I'd say there are a lot of misunderstandings, lol.

I'm currently in the process of converting to Catholicism. I grew up Pagan though.

Yes, there certainly are a lot of misunderstandings. I've learned a lot as of late, and it's definitely removed my temporary aversion to religion. I've learned that I cannot let the feelings that that the more vicious examples of Christianity invoke, poison my opinion of all sects of Christianity, or my feelings about religion in general.

One might say I've had a bit of a turn about when it comes to beliefs as of late...
