    I actively avoid religion - so I could be classed as an active atheist?

    In all seriousness though, I am not religious in any way, shape or form, but have known plenty of people who are actively a part of a religious community.

    No. I was booted out of religious studies in year 4 after continuously asking questions the preacher couldn't answer. They asked me not to return, lol.

    I'm very skeptical of religion. If that's what gets you through then each to their own but I certainly believe in science over religion.

    I also do not believe that 9/11 was a religious attack, for many many many reasons that I will not go in to otherwise I'll turn this into a debate.

    Having said that - I will not force my views on my own son, if he's interested in attending then I shall let him and advise him to make up his own mind in what he believes, though I will have to protest if he asks me to take him to church -my mother took us to church and left because she was continuously hounded week after week to 'donate'. If that's what he wants to do then I will find a family friend who is happy to take him and answer any of his questions but it's not something I can personally participate in

    I'm a Catholic however I don't go to church regularly. I pray very often though and that's enough for me. I'm really open to other religions and at school (Catholic) religious studies was about religion as a whole, not just Catholicism. I find other religions intriguing. Dh was brought up as a Buddhist which I think is lovely and I think partly why he's so calm!

    Eta: Just realized that I go more often to spiritualist church (where you get psychic readings done amongst other things) than catholic!

    Oh go on I would be fascinated to hear your thoughts! DH mate at the party on the weekend was going into conspiracy theories about it but I don't really know much about them!

    I go to church, prayer meetings.
    I worship and praise Jesus everyday.
    I pray everyday.
    I LOVE HIM.

    NOT because I have to.....because I don't, I have FREE WILL!!

    I believe Jesus is the one true son of God and that he died on the cross for all my sins once and for all. I no longer have sin. I am free.

    I don't call myself religious at all, as religion is something that you 'practise' per say and Jesus is real to me, he talks to me in many ways and he is my best friend, lover, husband, father, mother, sister. He is everything. My saviour.

    The best thing about it for me is knowing that I AM loved unconditionally with no bounds, no jugement and that he has saved me from sin and I will be with him for all eternity. Also he makes life so easy, so free and so happy, i'm never alone.

    This is for everyone if they only asked of him, he would show himself to you.

    My family is Catholic and we try and attend church every Sunday. Our children attend a Catholic school and will do so for the rest of their school life. We like how we now have two families, our own family and our church/school family. I like knowing that if there is something hat my children feel like that they can not talk to us about the have there other family to talk too.

    Yes I do, As a family (minus dd1 as she has made the decision that she doesn't want to believe so she doesn't go) we go to church every week, hubby is on the board on the church.
    Hubby has the qualifications to be a pastor but isn't working as one at the moment.
