    She's not disgusted with just your faith, but with all of them. I happen to agree with her opinions.

    And it's not trolling.

    DarthMaul13, I believe there are more Muslims in the world than Christians, but I could be wrong.

    Muslim. And I don't think it's cool to bash any religion.

    No, Demodex, DarthMaul13 is right. The number of Christians in the world is around 2 billion while there are about 1.5 billion Muslims in the world.

    But then, numbers really don't mean much of anything. There are more Hindus in the world than Muslims, Jews, and Christians combined.

    I'm Roman Catholic. And that makes me Christian. So I voted Christian. Oh well... :D

    Let's just say I have spiritual beliefs, rather than following a specific religious code or way of life.

    And I am happiest this way.

    Is that mathematically possible? With the numbers you gave, that would mean that there are over 3.5 billion Hindus. Add that to the 3.5 billion Christians and Muslims, and you have 7 billion people- more than the population of Earth.

    Protestant through and through. I'm fairly fundamentalist in beliefs, but I do find plenty in current doctrine to disagree with.

    Primetime_Jedi, it's not a serious insult, but rather, an old feminist joke, which I happen to think is very profound and funny. I would explain what it pokes fun at, but the admins might not like it if I did.

    There are only 700 million Hindus.

    2 billion Christains.

    1.5 billion Muslims.

    6 billion PEOPLE in the world.

    Hmmmm.... :( I sincerely apologize if anyone thought I was 'bashing' their religion. It's not the religion, its the people (of all beliefs) I get frustrated with that believe their way is the only way. How can that be since there are so many ways? *sigh* I believe all religions have merit as worshiping the Supreme Being in all his/her/their incarnations/forms could never be a bad thing. It's intolerance of other people's views that drives me crazy and is one reason I call myself a pagan. Not that I worship idols, just that I have a very fluid concept and acceptance of all God's forms.

    You've got to be kidding me...
    First all religous threads are banned, then this appears, what, one week later?
    To top it off the main TFN head honcho chimes in and CITES A BIBLE VERSE??!?!!?

    I'm sorry, but this is hypocricy at it's worst and it had to be pointed out.

    But, let me guess, this is a "special case" thread so it's OK. *sigh* Give me a break.

    Only a matter of time. But outta left field, I must say.

    And, of course, Illuminati outnumber every other religion. You just don't know it yet.

    Technically, I'm a Christian, but I have my own twist to things... I believe in an all-powerful Force... perhaps this is the same "God" that others believe in, perhaps it is not. I believe that when we die, we're all in it together. I believe that there are really no separate religions, but that all religions are different people's attempts to express the same ideas. But that's just me.

    You're going to find that many of teh truths we cling to depend greatly upon our own point of view.

    Hey, where's Mormon?!

    Anyways, I voted Christian. DUH! ;)

    And I hope the person that bashed me for saying that there are hardly any Muslims on the JC sees this thread. [face_plain]

    Born Jewish, now...non-denominational pagan I guess. So I'm voting agnostic.
