I'm Episcopalian, but I'm not religious to the point that I'd shove the Bible down your throat or preach to you over every little decision you make.

I'm pretty chill about my religion.

I am religious, but it's more of a personal and scholarly endeavor rather than adhering to particular texts.

Oddly enough it's the Myst videogame series and Stargate SG-1 that made me think about religion the most.

Seriously late to the party, but I enjoy answering your polls.

I am Christian. I am proud of my relationship with Christ. But I am not religious.

I say this, because I have seen both extremes- I currently attend a school that is rather patriarchal, homophobic, and guilts people into doing things out of the name of God. However, I have also been harrassed by atheist to the point of tears, stalked, and called every name in the book. Why? I said "God bless you."

People tend make the other side look really bad, I know that now; for a while, I thought Queen was a band that wanted gay people to take over the world, thanks to my....wonderful...principal. But I have also been confronted by people who think that all Christians through Bibles at everyone around them and spout verses like a fountain.

Obviously, both of these are not true. But being raised in a Christian home, I felt very depressed, because a lot of what I had believed to be true ended up being wrong, and because I had never really been attacked for what I had believed. After I recognized the the bias and the blatant discrimination against homosexuals and other religions, I honestly was about to give up on Christianity.

But then I realized something. I am a follower of Christ, not a follower of followers.

I began to walk my own path, develop my own relationship with God, and honestly, I've felt much more lifted up then I did two years ago. I'm able to see things in different perspectives, and accept people for what they believe. I've been able to stand up for what I KNOW is right.

And I realized that there were so many amazing people around me that demonstrated true Christianity- and not all of them were necessarily Christians. I believe God sees everyone equally, and I know that He helped me change my viewpoints and put away my bias. I follow Christ, and I am very proud of it, because I feel as if his life was something amazing, something that people should pay attention to.

And you know, even if there is no God, I will still follow Christ. Because I would rather die knowing I did my best than spend the rest of my life judging people for what they believe in.
