I thought it would be fun, not to start debates, but to find out how diverse a group we have here.

i have never been into a church my whole life. i was rasied without religion.

my hubby was raised Catholic, but then has given up his faith for the last 20 years.

we are very spiritual, and live a life very connected with mother nature here on earth. we celebrate pagan days and preform some pagan rituals. we have found great peace in the knowledge of the god and goddess with us in our everyday existance, and we are looking forward to raising our kids with this in their hearts as well.

Im pretty much agnostic - my DH was raised southern baptist - what a couple huh!? lol.

In the past several years - even before I came along - he began questioning the strict interpretation of the bible that he was taught, and questions it more and more each day.

We raise my son to look at all options and choose what feels best to him.

i was raised LDS, and still attend services almost every Sunday even though i am not a member in good standing (in other words, i'm jack Mormon). my fiance is nondenominational Christian, doesn't really believe that one needs to attend services

I am at best agnostic. My DH is muslim. I am learning about Islam. His family would like me to convert and I am not opposed but I dont want to do it until I feel that I could believe it. I think it would disrespectful to them otherwise. Our children will be raised muslim.

We don't practice an organized religion but identify with Pantheism ( http://www.pantheism.net/ )
Hubby was raised in Catholicism and as soon as he wasn't being forced anymore he left it.
I feel very spiritual about the natural world but don't worship any idol. We live our lives by the Golden Rule, we apply it to our environment as well as the people and creatures we cross paths with.

I didn't understand the question I thought you were asking if our religion was why we wanted natural childbirths, and the answer to that is no, but I do have a religion, I am lds.
