    I checked with Darth Cleo.

    We are not out to start a debate, just asking what you believe in.

    Star Wars ecompasses ideas from all religions, I just want to see if that is really true, and if its fans follow a broad range of religions.

    I was about to choose "other," because my beliefs are quite eclectic, and incorporate Christianity, Zen Buddhism, Mahayana Buddhism, Taoism, Scientific Pantheism, and Nature-worship, with a just a dash of Zoroastrianism.

    Then I realized that if I'm working all of that into my belief structure, it must mean I really don't know what to believe-- thus I picked agnostic.

    Pagan, through and through. Been through plenty of organized religions, like certain tenants of many of them but am thoroughly disgusted with their adherents demands that their way is the only way. *sigh* God is god and she isn't picky how you worship her. Hehehehe....

    I am a Christian. In the spirit of Star Wars, however, I will not force my believes on others, but am willing to discuss them privately.

    I am a christian.

    And I would just like to point out, truth is not a subjective thing. Someone is right and someone is wrong. That is what I believe.

    I'm Catholic, but I believe you should worship however you feel. Whenever your judgement (or whatever) comes, God won't care how many Sunday's you spent in Church praising his name or how many heathens you converted. It's whether or not you're a good person and have made yourself and others happy that counts.

    I'm a Christian because I believe in God and Jesus Christ, but I don't think my beliefs fit in with most of the Christians in America (especially the Bible Belt where I live), because I have a hard time with the "there's only one way" concept. There are six billion people on this earth and therefore six billion ways to spiritual utopia--I have chosen mine, and it may not be right for you. (Just for the record, I'm not out to start a debate--I'm just stating my beliefs. You have a right to think I'm going to hell but let's not spend a lot of time arguing about it--it's not going to get us anywhere.)

    BobTheGoon: Bravo.

    I'm a Catholic who doesn't understand why it's hip to bash the biggest religion in the world; 1 billion members and growing. Then there are the 900 million protestants.

    Look, if there's not going to be any debating, then comments like this need to be removed:

    "Been through plenty of organized religions, like certain tenants of many of them but am thoroughly disgusted with their adherents demands that their way is the only way. *sigh* God is god and she isn't picky how you worship her"

    I am a believer in Jesus Christ and BelleBayard just said that she was thoroughly disgusted with my faith.

    Gimme a break! That's flaming and borderline trolling.

    Not to mention logically flawed since she is claiming that her view on this subject is the only way.
