Does it have a creed?

Does it purport to teach moral lessons?

Does it have a text that is considered divinely inspired and sacred?

Does it involve the worship of a supernatural being?

Does it involve getting together with other like-minded people for the purpose of such worship?

What more, exactly, do you require before admitting this is a religion?

Why try to escape the trappings of religion? Aren't these the same people who accuse atheism of being a religion? Please. tell me what you think a religion actually is, and then we can talk.

Buddha was a disgusting human being. Why would anyone want to follow a filthy person like that?

"Christianity is not a religion."

It's not anything at all; Not even bullshit.

An abusive relationship with god, to be precise.

If it involves scripture, it's a religion.

@Po Chuck: That had better be sarcasm...

@lambslove: THAT'S WHAT ALL RELIGION IS!

Why the churchs? You don't need huge, overbuilt monoliths full of seats to have a personal relationship.

Christianity is an organized institution and meets ALL the requirements of RELIGION

Then please send in all the over-due taxes, as personal relationships and faiths are not tax exempt.

Which is a more than passable definition of what religion means.

That's exactly what a religion is you imbecile!

That's fine, personal relationships aren't protected by the first amendment. You can, however, have a restraining order....

...and that's what religon is. But Christianity still isn't one, right? Right?
