    Nope, but if there is as higher percentage of Caucasians, who are much more likely to be Christian than Muslim or Hindu, it is going to reduce numbers of other religions. I'd also be interested in seeing percentage of groups that are traditionally thought to be Christian correlated by location... I'd suspect that rural areas have a higher percentage of the Caucasian population reporting as Christian than in the big metropolitan area.

    I also think the census data is a bit odd, because people who day-to-day don't identify as Christian seem to include themselves for census purposes based on their family background being Christian. Cause the numbers in the census are HIGH I think.

    Athiest.

    Most of my neighbourhood is Muslim. I'd say, 75%? Maybe 70%? I love that they all hang out in their garages. They all have nice decks, but they set up the patio furniture in their garages and hang out. When soccer is on it's like a street party around the corner. Most have tv's in their garages.

    (BTW the brick stealer is not Muslim).

    I am not currently practicing any form of religion. I was raised Catholic (against my will) and have a lot of unresolved issues encompassing my upbringing and beliefs that surround and involve this Church. However, I am not opposed to those that believe in the Church, God or a Higher Power. I find this a very controversial subject even within my own family. Religion is a very passionate thing. IMO it's one of those LOVE/HATE things that will be disputed until the ends of time!

    And, I now need to Google: “Animism. The belief that everything has an energy/spirit and we are all connected through that.“

    I voted Christian but have never attended Church (other than to attend other peoples' weddings or baptisms, etc.). DH was baptised Anglican.

    Roman Catholic. Now, I'm confused on this whole Christian/Catholic thing.. I know it's been discussed, but RC wasn't an option in your poll. For some reason whenever I'm asked my religion I'll choose RC over Christian. I've always been that way. From JK to now. Whole other convo though I think

    RC is Christian, Christian means that you believe in Christ as your saviour. RC is a Christian denomination. United, Presbyterian, Anglican, etc are also all Christian denominations.

    I voted Christian btw, currently attending a Presbyterian church, used to attend a United church before our last move.

    IMO FRC is more strict (some would say more legalism - I agree with that to an extent as well) - but that would also depend on each church for that as well. I grew up that you had to wear dresses/skirts to church and to Catechism classes on Tuesday, no TV on Sunday, no playing cards, can't go to the theatre, no dancing, probably more that I can't think of right now - but a lot of people have changed for that over the years...by the time I was in high school my parents let us play cards, go to the theatre and watch TV on Sunday. On the other hand growing up all the CRC friends I had could do all those things when we couldn't.
