    I'm curious about the spectrum of religious beliefs on US Message Boards, especially for those that post in the Politics and USA Chat areas.

    The subject of religion comes up alot, so I'm curious about the various beliefs held here by members.


    Regards,

    There was another thread a short while ago that asked, "what religion do you follow?"

    If you find that thread you probably will have many of your questions answered as to the belief systems of those on this board.

    Sorry if was in the wrong forum - though I placed it there because I was curious about the people that specifically frequent "gen USA" and "Politics".

    Then I would suggest simply asking members who post on those threads what their religion is.

    I thought it would be easier having a poll that people could click.

    It seems to be working. Many have answered the poll. If you click on the number for each of them you can see who voted which way.

    I voted for the first option, though there is a theological difference between an evangelical and a fundamentalist.

    I do recognize that, but I was trying to keep the categories fairly broad.


    As long as we're on the subject, how do you define the differences from evangelical, Fundamentalist, and born again?

    I think your survey is skewed (as most liberal surveys are). Where are the "non-practicing" categories for fundamentalist, evangelical, born again, atheist, secular humanist, and agnostic?

    You have attached behavioral conditions to the Christian category.
