I have no party...Am Pagan, though I do attend a unitarian congregation on occasion. I too was raised Catholic, studied the Vedas...a bit of the Qur'an...and a few others. I am 39 and Married with three kids.

Interesting. So what religion are you teaching your children? Is your wife Pagan too?

(My husband is Jewish and if we have kids, they will be raised Jewish.)

Yes...my Sweet Harpie is also Pagan. We homeschool our children ,and part of that includes Religion. Thus far we have gone thru Roman/Greek mythology, and are now on the King James version of Christian Scripture. As they become more versed in the basics, we intend to work into the Torah, the Vedas, and the Qur'an (we own copies of all these, and several more). Niether of us really care what religion the Kids choose, short of a cult, as we feel it really no ill effect on who they become.

Slightly Conservative
In my opinion I see too many of our leaders hiding behing their religion (or lack there of) when it comes to politics. Either way your beliefs go I think it is very dangerous to be anything other than indifferent to religion when it comes to making laws.

Anyone who tries to change the definition of conservative to accomodate their political attitude is taking a neoconservatist approach. The left may have you believe that all Cons are bible-thumpers, while in fact some may be, they all most definitely are not. Vis'aVis, The right may have you believe that all liberals are atheist, while in fact some may be, they all most definitely are not.

That's a bad thing, me thinks, to have a party affiliation semantically be perceived as a religious affiliation. It's bad politics and bad religion.
