I'm a bit bored and was interested in how many GMC'ers are religous.

Theist - believes in the existence of a God or Gods
Agnostic - isn't sure about the existence of a God or Gods
Atheist - does not believe in the existence of a God or Gods

I was raised in a very strict Christian home, and I attended a private Christian school
for many years. I wasn't allowed to do anything...listening to rock music was a sin, dancing was a sin,
movies and tv were tools of the devil, etc, etc. All of this really turned me off of religion, and when I was about 16 I
stopped going to church, and kind of went down a different path. As I got older I realized that it wasn't God that I had lost
faith in, but in the people who claimed to be speaking for Him. This is why I hate the term "religion". "Religion" as I
see it is just a bunch of rules made up by MEN; not by God. I still believe in God, and I still hold on to many of the core
Christian values that I was taught: being honest, being compassionate, and treating others the way that I would like to be treated.
