I suppose my current church would fall under the "other Charismatic" in "Assemblies of God, Church of God or other Charismatic", but since that's a pretty icky category in general I'd still just say "Lutheran or Evangelical Free Church".

Atheist, although that's not really a "movement" now is it? Wink

Well, okay, to be fair, while I've long been of the "don't care" variety, I have found myself getting more and more anti-religious, in the last few years, so I suppose that's a movement - the "New Atheism", etc.

I'm an agnostic, although I do believe in "something" ... but like Oakie, I'm becoming more and more opposed to organised religion.

Jewish.

Not really sure where I fit in when it comes down to denomination or branch though. I know i'm definitely NOT reform (no offense to any reform jews on here).

I'm not very religious in the conventional sense of the term, but I do agree with a lot more of the traditional or Orthodox branch.

I just took an online quiz and I fit Orthodox Judaism more than any other branch. (Than Conservative, and Hasidic lol)

Lutheran; LCMS, more specifically. I have issues with it, but I haven't actually taken the time to research other options, so it'll do for now.

Not religious/atheist/agnostic.

While there might be some spiritual leader among us, I doubt it, as there is no evidence to say that there is.

"Atheist, agnostic, or humanist"

Also, what exactly would the third to last option (secular) refer to when there's also an option for 'Atheist, agnostic, or humanist'?

Sorry, that was a little confusing. I thought that it would be a little too simplistic if I categorized all the non-religious as either atheist/agnostic/humanist or don't care, so I added a third option for those who are essentially secular but do not wish to be characterized as atheists or agnostics.

No, it's actually mostly Methodist. The American denomination United Church of Christ is about half Congregationalist and half German free church.

Raised and baptized in a southern Baptist church, but I identify as agnostic these days. I'm still quite the 'cultural' Baptist (every event possible must have some sort of meal! Tongue) but I don't believe that there is a god, but am erring on the side of 'I don't know, and you don't know either, so let's please not fret about it'.

I am not opposed to religion, however. I enjoy learning about different religions and I'd like to attend a number of different religious services. I've always been very interested in Catholicism.

Pagan. I very loosely follow celtic revivalism (mostly just samhain, shamanism.. kinda pedestrian I have to admit) although lately I've developed some interest in the germanic syncretics and all that. It's only political in so far as I agree with a lot of de Benoist's critique of Christianity. That and well, only cultural christianity could have produced anything as annoying as Atheistkult.

That's actually good in my opinion. You don't want to get too deeply in Celtic revivalism. It's notoriously the  most anti-intellectual, anti-scholarly of all the pagan movements I've heard.
