    So many posts about religion and so many posts dragging religion in where it's off topic. What's your religion?

    I'd like fundamentalist and evangelical put on different lines before I'll answer the poll. Evangelicals strongly believe in spreading Chrisitanity through preaching and other peaceful speech. Fundamentalists are nuts who believe that guys who have long hair and girls who wear pants go to Hell and that Catholics are the next best thing to Satanists. I don't know who first lumped those two groups together, but whoever they were, they must've REALLY hated evangelicals.

    Like I said in another thread.

    Sorry Hobbit, they only allow 10 choices, that's why it says and/or. Same goes for Atheist/Agnostic, which are also different from one another. I had to do that or else leave out some major faiths. When I said Evangelical/Fundamentalist, I meant simply "Non Mainstream" Protestantism. Maybe that's how I should have phrased it.

    Not to offend you but I'm a former Catholic. But what is the point of saying the Rosary? All you are doing is mindlessly repeating prayers.

    The point to saying the Rosary is that when you do you are honoring the Blessed mother and so also honoring Christ. It's very simple. There is no such thing as mindless prayers as no prayer is ever wasted. The point of saying the Rosary is mainly to reflect on the the holy mysteries as you say them, and to pray for souls.

    What I meant by mindless is by the time you get through the Rosary you've said the Hail Mary so many times that it seems to just be second nature to say the words without even thinking about what you are saying.
