Poll forthcoming. Amen.

Edit: Qualifier: If you went to mass/assembly/whatever once or more...you experienced it.

Define "religion". Are Baptist and Lutheran different religions, or are they just different sects?

1. I've been to (your typical "mainstream Christan") church services with friends two or three times, back when I was around 9 or 10 or maybe 12.

I haven't been to services, but I have at various times wandered into Christian, Buddhist, Islamic, and Hindu temples, and I've played basketball at a Jewish Community Center. I've also been in the woods if that counts as a Druid temple.

Mostly go to Lutheran church services. Have been to Jewish synagogue, and whatever it is Hindus call their service.

I voted 5:

Pentecostal
Scientology
Lutheran
Catholic
Baptist

plus probably another variety or two of protestant faith (like Methodist). Most of them have been for one or two sessions.

My wife was curious, so we attended orientation and took some tests. It was horrible. I do not recommend it.

Sounds like your wife is adventurous but sane. Good combination. I'd hate to think what would have transpired had she become a Scientologist.

Those people have zero sense of humor. I was jacking up the answers on their tests with obviously sarcastic bullshit and they were very seriously inquiring about my stupid answers. I couldn't even coax a grin out of them and I'm a funny mother.

They invite you to buy any earthworms to grow and sell for a profit?

As far as those I have been to the only one that is WRONG is the Jehovahs Witness'. If I offended you I'm sorry kinda, I'd discuss it but I'd rather smack myself in the head with a tack hammer and it would produce the same results in you. NONE

There's no possible way you could offend me when it comes to religion. I'd love to hear why you thought it was wrong, though. :D

I've always felt that tailgating and attending games at Arrowhead is a religion as it's something I do regularly with a group of people I know,it's generally on Sundays,we sing and sometimes dance and we usually find ourselves praying.

So counting that it's 4.
