Another spinoff, this time from cruixman's topic on god...

If you're an ecclectic believer please choose the path you identify with most :mrgreen:

I chose 'Dont label me man!'

Because as I learn I feel my belief systems are constantly evolving and taking on new ideas.

I'm put Pagan, but I'm not Wiccan.

Myself & alocal gay reverend are looking at setting up an LGBT faith comittee in the Midlands, depends on how much the other faith representitives are up for it I suppose.

Thanks for doing the poll everyone :mrgreen:

Sorry about missing you out Mrs Flibble, I've never heard of universalists, should have put 'other' on the poll. So, what do universalists believe?

Good luck with your comittee sleepyowl, it's wonderful when different faiths can come together without any friction!

I practice Buddhist meditation, and I occasionally indulge in a little Shinto celebration. But I still voted Don't label me, because it could all change with a just a finger pointing down from heaven and some unmistakeable instructions.

I put pagan although I'm pretty ecclectic. I'm pretty much a deist/panthiest who believes the infinite is far to complex for the human mind to take in and that symbols, myths, spells and gods etc can help us better understand and commune with nature. Although sometimes I like to think they are more than just symbols.

I think it is cool that on a non-officially pagan that pagans are the biggest religious group.
But there's more than just solving the how-to problems. I've often said that if we're going to have a real rural renaissance, I'd just take the solving of the how-to problems for granted. The first thing I'd provide would be festivals.

I picked 'other'. I know we have our roots in Christianity but I'm more of a Jesusarian then a Christian. Having said that like Mr. QB I'm happy to be with any of the above if there's free food going :lol:
