    Don't just put another denomination down, for instance Baptist and Pentacostal.

    If I weren't Vaishnava, I have no freaking clue. Lost, most likely. I have a feeling I would keep searching til I found this path anyway, and then there I would be. :p

    If I were not Pagan, I would most likely be Buddhist or a Secular Humanist.

    If I were not a Secular Humanist (with a heavy Taoist influence), I would be a Buddhist (Zen or Nichiren - or a strange combination of the two.) or possibly follow Jainism.

    If I were not a member of Disciples of Christ, I'd likely be a Christian Unitarian.

    If I weren't a Christian, I'd be lost.

    I don't have the first clue what I am and don't have enough knowledge to pick an alternate. I just know what sings in my heart....and it's something bigger than me. Or maybe even something smaller.

    Maybe that makes me a Horton whoshipper? I'm ok with that today.

    If I weren't burnt out and in need of time to wander in the wilderness to recover from legalism, I would be quaker. Really like the Friends here. Unless we had a Unity and UU church, then I would try those to see if I liked them. Would be pagan, except I'm not. Tried to be, liked the idea of it, but I'm just not.

    If I wasn't LDS I can't even imagine. I think I'd be miserable.

    If I weren't agnostic, I'd be a Quaker.

    I like the way they sit in silence until moved to speak and how they are all in charge of their meetings and weddings.

    I'm under the UU umbrella, but I'm currently very interested in the Baha'i faith.

    It's taken me two days to answer this.

    If I weren't UU, I'd be outside a religion.

    I started to reply when you first posted this, saying I'd be Liberal Quaker, but I don't entirely share their vision of God.

    Just to throw in a funny....we've had a super crappy day today, and I asked this to DH, who replied, "If I weren't Baptist, I'd be drinking right now." :rofl:

    If I weren't a Theravada Buddhist I'd be an atheist who puts her foot in her mouth a lot more often!

    That is funny. After I wrote my response I wondered if I'd really be miserable - maybe I wouldn't know what I was missing - but I can't imagine being happy without it.

    If I weren't a good person without a need for religion or a title, I would be a good person called a secular humanist :)

    If I weren't a Roman Catholic, I would be a Luthern (a conservative sect).

    I'm copying this clever good person.

    That said, I'm taking the kids to UU in the morning, for totally non-religious reasons. Purely cultural, actually.
