I think religion is cool. Just let people believe what the want and don't knock them for it. Leave them alone and you won't have all these other problems. At least you won't be starting any.

Not to be an asshole, but Both wicca and Paganism involve like a million Deities.

that is true but, they are all representative of one power, that which is the universe, people have just created dieties to represent little parts they deem more important. like myself, i worship the universe as a whole instead of one of the dieties. it's that simple.

i'd have to agree with most ppl on here...i dont have an ideal religion. i think just watever makes u happy is what you should go with. the base of religion in general is not something i like. the whole idea that something is greater than me that i cant see just sickens me. but if it makes ya happy, then ok i wont say anything against it to u.

I prefer Unitarianism

Unitarianism is my way to go. Non-dogmatic, very little ritual, allows you to believe like you want to and isn't afraid of "tough questions."
My ideal religion is just that -- a lot of individuals with different religious/theistic experiences coming together to discuss and help each other in their own personal quests for truth.

Once for a bit of fun I created my own church and named it:

The New Celestial Church of the Nevermind

rules: nevermind...O.K?
theosophy: nevermind..O.K?
sin: nevermind..O.K?

However it was soon overpowered by the force of the Dickhead Druids of the Diabolical Devestation...

Oh well...Nevermind....

To me the ideal religion would be one where you got gratification on earth without worshiping anything or having laws but rather being spiritual and crap, but still having an all powerful god(s) (maybe a cross between satanism and wiccian) and there would be prophecy of crap to happen in the future (like Revelations). When you die you dont have judgement but go immediately to some sort of perfect paradise that's a perfect heaven for the individual (like Christianity) Sadly, I don't believe in any religions like that and that's not the way it was/is/or will be so......guess it'll just be an ideal religion. Oh well.
By the way, Jub Jub Pickens or whatever your name is, do you ever contribute to this board? You act like a little kid mocking Red necks (which most of my family is and I'll probably end of being). For god's sake, please stop trying to be funny or just leave.

Especially the part about being a GUIDE not a ‘law’. I believe religion should be different for each individual. When you start following an established religion, you are following someone else’s interpretations and beliefs.

My ideal religion is the one that I’ve made for myself, after looking into Catholicism, Jehovaism, and several others.

BTW, I was baptized Roman Catholic as well... but there was too much in it that didn't make sense. Including and especially a constant demand for 'tithes'.
