    I consider myself a cultural Jew, but I'm not religious at all. Christmas is my favourite time of year and I eat bacon every sunday

    I gave religion a red hot go, tried a few different faiths, no god ever answered any of my prayers.

    I decided religion was not for me and I am grateful my parents supported my religious exploration. I'm sure that it was probably a bit difficult to watch your 16 year old daughter go to the Mormon church every week

    I also used to go to midnight mass with my mum but she lost her faith a few years ago.

    I am a christian and practice the teachings (to the best of my ability) and talk/pray to God regularly but I don't go to church.

    Well, did the Catholic thing as a kid. Due to a series of events that I won't go into here, I became one of the most religiously cynical people that you can imagine. So I've gone through my whole adult life believing in nothing.

    This year, I discovered Buddhism. My choice to be vegetarian (there's a thread waiting to happen!) came before that but the rest of the teachings really spoke to me. I haven't gone to any temple or anything, and I don't know that I will. But I will continue to get a lot out of it though.

    I go to an Anglican church. I was never christened but my children are. I used to go every Sunday but now with two toddlers and the service being during there sleep time I only go a few times a year. I am hoping when they are older we can go regularly and they can go to Sunday school

    I was baptised, confirmed and went to an anglican school. Went to church regularly as a young child but it fell away to Xmas and Easter by the time I was 7/8. Once I left school I didn't go at all and am an athiest now.
    I'm hoping DD can go to my old school though, I'd like her to learn about different religions (and they were quite good about that there, teaching about different religions and the big bang theory etc as well), so that she can make her own decision.

    I was christened church of england (anglican now i think) when I was a baby. My parents are now both athiests (sp??)

    Now I'm pg with my second child and am searching for something. I always watch 19 kids and counting with much admiration for believing in something greater. For me who has never been religious to fall pg was such a blessing that we never thought would happen once yet alone twice. But I don't know..

    Is it a slippery slope to be interested and it escalating into something more like not believing in birth control?
