The last one I actively attended was the Unitarian Universalist Church. I gave it up because the UU's in Chapel Hill, NC are a bunch of stodgy old fogeys who have no sense of fun when it comes to religion. We did it much better in our giant silver pyramid in Wyoming (just what the hell was up with that building?). This didn't stop me from parking in their parking lot for Carolina basketball games though.
I also attended a Quaker private school for seven years, and ended up at plenty of their meetings. Not a bad religion, and I wouldn't mind attending. Sitting in silence is rather refreshing, and it's always nice when you're encouraged to sit and think before you speak.
Raised Catholic, still identify culturally, but I'm pretty much an agnostic who just can't shake the sense that something had to cause the universe to begin, but thinks there's no chance any of us dunderheads are going to figure it out.
Christian, of the Charismatic persuasion. What that means is that the church services are always LONG. When I went to Baptist churches, I was amazed and impressed that there were services that ended quickly without drawn out altar calls.
For all your CZW and Nickels Trivia information. I am now the Sex Division Trivia Champion, and on September 10 I face someone who actually works part time in the WWE! Will I be starstruck, or will I hold him down worse than the WWE holds down Val Venis? STAY TUNED!

I am a United Methodist, about to attend a Wesleyan Seminary and get ordained.
I am pretty involved in the Progressive Christian movement, and have started an organization where I live, as that's where my faith calls me.
My fiancee is Pagan.
(edited by messenoir on 25.8.05 0916) A strict constructionist interprets the Constitution according to the language and original intent of the text at the time of its writing, in much the same way as a fundamentalist views the Bible. Fortunately, for strict constructionists, they have been endowed by God with the superhuman gift of being able to read the minds of people who died 200 years ago. Naturally, they use this power only for good - America (The Book)
In high school, Mrs. Moore. About 70 in 1970 and taught humanities. She was approx. 5' 2" and 80 lbs who commanded respect and most of all taught me how to read, enjoy, and make the classics from Plato to Joyce relevant.
