Roman Catholic.

Somewhat Catholic.
And what the hell is "non-trinitarian"?

Jehovah's Witnesses, for one.

And what the hell is "non-trinitarian"?

Basically involves all Christian groups that reject the doctrine of the Trinity, considering it an artificial construct as a result of the edicts by Emperor Constantine.  Another commonality is that they all see the Nicene Creed as a political document, as it is through it that the Church became essentially an extension of the Roman Empire.  

jmfcst and other posters who are more knowledgeable than I will no doubt fill you in on the rest...

Do not fight with one another over my banning.  I've enjoyed the time I have spent with all of you, but the time really has come for me to leave.  It is what I want.

Agnostic

To branch off of what Torie was saying: one can be agnostic or even atheist, but still appreciate religious teachings, texts, ceremonies, etc. for their metaphorical/symbolic/moralistic value.

Father is protestant, mother is catholic, though neither are religious (they didn't even baptize me Tongue).

It's interesting that Catholics are slightly overrepresented on this forum (in comparison to the US in general), while Protestants are very, very underrepresented. (Clearly non-Christians are overrepresented as well, but that's not at all suprising). Do Protestants not use the internet? (I mean this in a sort of toung-in-cheek way, obviously Protestants use the internet)

Protestants identify less with "Protestant" (and more with a particular denomination or just "Christian") than Catholics do with "Catholic", so probably less likely to vote in this sort of poll.

This.  Of course, in the OP defense, there are way too many denominations of Protestantism to mention here, so it's easier to say Protestant and let those who select mention themselves what denomination they are actually of.  Kind of like I did.

There are actually over 20 different denominations of Catholic as well.

Yes, that. Related to, though not quite the same, as 'nominal'. Though he may well be both.

Why would you even identify with that Church? It was sort of a loaded question: In my opinion, if you believe what that church says, then by logic you should follow its rules or at least try. Instead you get to identify as Christian but none of the responsibilities.
