What is Your Race and Religion?

    This is just another one of those threads where you can post if you want to, and not if you don't. In this thread, you can share with others what your race and religion is. And please, and no point, don't turn this into a prejudice thread, for we should all be proud for ourselves and others. So here we go, he's mine...

    RACE: I'm a white American who comes from a Scots/Irish background. (My ancestors were Scotish and Irish) Which may explain why I'm pale, like rainy days, and love bagpipe music.

    RELIGION: I'm a Presbytirian. Foremerly a Baptist. Not much difference except in baptisms, you sprinkle instead of emerge, and it's not a sin to write "X-Mas" instead of "Christmas".

    I'm also Scots-Irish. And Swedish. But on both sides my folks have been in America several generations. I'm a Lutheran, which in general is pretty close to Presbyterian, I think.

    Race: Caucasian. To be specific, I'm German, English, Dark Irish, and Scots-Irish.

    Religion: Short version: Spiritual atheist. Long version: Born Christian, baptized at the request of my grandmother. I wasn't a practicing one until a while back when I started going to new age churches. Then I switched to wicca for various reasons. (For a while I tried being a Christian/wiccan combo, but that didn't work.) Then I stopped believing in the god and goddess, and any other higher power, and drifted away from wicca, simply calling myself pagan. Recently I discovered the faith that matches mine the closest is spiritual atheism.

    My race? Um.... good question. I know I'm a little Russian and a little Austrian, and beyond that, um.......... I think I'll use my grandpa's line. "I'm American." :attitude:

    Religion: By belief, I'm a Conservative Jew. By practice, I'm more of a Reform Jew. But the point is I'm Jewish.

    I'm American with a mostly German background. Technically on my dad's side I'm Prussian, but Prussia is now part of Germany, so I'm called German. I'm also a little Irish, Scottish, and Danish(yep, I'm a breakfast food).

    For the other, I'm a Lutheran by birth, but not really by practice. Seeing as I don't go to church and I only went through catechism to please my Grandma. Mainly I just believe in Jesus and a higher power(call it God if you wish) and I leave it at that.

    Hrmm..
    Race: Yeah.. I'm American. I know I've got some Scottish, English, and French (some of that is wayy back though, and not sure about anything else. Thanks to my Aunt for doing some geneology to know that much! ^_^)

    Religion: Yeah.. Never knew what to call myself but Unitarian. I believe in a higher power and all, but not exactly fit into one specific religion.

    I am English born and bread (and butter? No...um...bred), pass me that tea would you?

    My religion is Christianity, I wouldn't call myself either Baptist, or Evengelical, or any of the "labels" people put on christians. I believe that God created the world, man sinned, God became a man named Jesus and died on the cross taking the sins of all, and offering forgiveness to thsoe who ask *deep breath* Phew...that was the short anwer...

    I think this is a very interesting thread D'Snowth! It's fun to learn where others come from and what they believe!

    My race: Well, I was born and raised in Minnesota so American caucasian, and I have some Norweigen, Irish, German, Bohemean, British and possibly French (my grandfather was adopted so we don't know for sure) in me.

    My religion: Catholic even though I don't agree 100 % with what it teaches, I do have a deep devotion to Mary, so it works for me!

    Ahaaa!! You are danish! YOu are a dane! OOoh we're gonna have so much fun speaking danish, discussing The Little Mermaid, reading H.C Andersen and singing "I Danmark er jeg født der har jeg hjemme" - you know the danish song "In Denmark I was born there is my home". But of course you knew that because you are a DANE!! Yayyayayayay!! ......... :)

    Okay moi:

    RACE:
    I was born as a Danish and when I was three I became a human...

    (I just can't get enough of the whole danish pastry/dane joke! :) )

    And I'm still a dane. And I am so Danish it hurts! In generatiooooons my family has been danish. I have relatives in US actually, but I've never seen them. My father's Father's sister and her husband who went to America when they were 23 or so, so they must be rather old now... hm, I wonder if I have any cousins or something in USA! I must have actually... Curious. :D

    RELIGION:
    I'm a Christian, in the "I believe Jesus is our saviour and that he loves me and everybody and that you just gotta say "yes I want your forgiveness" and you'll have it." way. Sometimes I think believing is hard, sometimes it's so easy. But I'm pretty sure that I do believe in Jesus and that I'm a christian.
    - yep.

    Half Dutch half Danish. Yum. My father is from Holland and his side of the family has lived there for ages. At least I think they have. My mother is from Denmark and her family has lived here for a looooong time.
    I was born and raised in Denmark, but I can understand (and speak a bit) Dutch.

    I'm a Christian. I believe in God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and what the Bibel says about them, people and the world.

    I am from part native american heritage, on the caucasion side, I am unsure where originated.
    religion well I have been to alot of different churches trying to find my way. Found that I can have my own relationship with my god without carrying a label, so I dont attend any particular church.

    So, I'm English. My mam is English, my dad is English. All 4 of my grandparents were English. So, to sum up, I'm English

    Religion is a hard one for me,. I was raised Catholic, and have been confirmed Catholic. However, since Confirmation I've been doubting the religion and I'm now no longer a Catholic. I don't really know what I am at the moment, I'm not totally atheist. I believe in some higher power, I believe in an afterlife. I'm really interested in Buddhism at the moment, I'm studying that when bored and share a lot of beliefs with them. I'm also a Fruitist, which I know some of my closer members of MC are!! Woo!! Frutism rules!!
