personally, I think that religion is not the same as spirituality.
you can be the most devout Christian (Catholic, Baptist, Mormon, whatever) in the world and never set foot inside a church... and you can also be the most hypocritical "Christian" ever, and go to every single event that happens at church that there is.
I think that applies to every religious belief that exists--including atheism, Buddhism, Islam, paganism, etc.
believing in God and what he can do and what he is and how he factors into your life is, to me, far more important than making sure you go to church every Sunday. I haven't been to church in years, but I feel as close to God as I ever did.
but then again, I'm not what you call a traditional Christian--outside of believing the basics (like the ten commandments and the golden rule), and believing that Jesus did die for our sins (whether or not he was God's son, and whether or not he was dying for our sins literally as opposed to symbolically)... I pretty much shove the rest of it aside and have my own philosophies about spirituality.
I also have some Pagan influences, I have some Buddhist influences, and so on. I've pretty much read over (not enough tho) every religion that I know of (Satanism included--I don't discriminate against ANY religion), agreed with some of it, disagreed with some of it, and have walked away from all of that, keeping what I liked, and trying my best to apply that to my life.
you can blame this site (http://www.religioustolerance.org
) for starting that. I was raised as a Christian (primarily Baptist) for all of my life, but around 2003, I'd discovered that site out of a curiosity of Druidism, and wound up reading about EVERY SINGLE RELIGION listed there... long story short, that turned my world completely upside down, as I was feeling rather... empty, spiritually speaking. I sought the advice of an old friend who was more or less something of a new-age type of woman (and a very nice one at that!), and she pointed me to the Conversations With God books by Neale Donald Walsch. that made everything hurt less.
I also asked a couple of my Pagan friends if I could attend some rituals with them--they were happy to oblige, and that was much more fun to me than church for a while, and it helped me out because it gave me a chance to experience something other than "praise Jeeeeeesus!" hymns, bible-thumpers who believe that the world was made in seven literal twenty-four-hour days and shouting preachers.
I'm probably best described as an agnostic, but I don't think that's accurate, either.
