This evening I want to ask: what religions do you find most interesting apart from your own? Would you pick one of the major world religions? Say Islam, or Buddhism, or Hinduism or Judaism? Or would you pick something more obscure, like Wicca or Taosim or Rastafarianism or Gnosticism? Would you pick irreligion, say Atheism or Agnosticism? Or if you’re not Christian, would you say Christianity?
I was thinking this could even make a good meme.
To participate, state your own religion (or irreligion) as your first preference, state the other religions that interest you most as your second and third preferences, then pass onto five others. If you’re feeling brave, say why they interest you.
Here’s my religious preferences:
1. Christianity (because I’m convinced Jesus really is the Christ)
2. Buddhism (because I love the philosophy, meditation, paradoxes and poetry)
3. Chaos Magic (because there’s an anarchist side to me that’s just drawn to a wild concept of Spirit)
And I should say, there is a serious side to this. I think it potentially reveals a lot about our personality, history, culture and spirituality (without – most important – necessarily implying you’re a syncretist).
But hey, feel free to participate even if I haven’t tagged you.
