Anonymous Religion Questionnaire #2

Just for fun you can fill out this questionnaire about your religious habits. There are two versions of the questionnaire. This one is aimed at people who do not identify with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Copy and paste these questions into your email, then answer the questions and email it to:
Don't send me your name, as I am more interested in your answers than I am in your actual identity.

This 24 question survey is intended for use in a book designed to encourage and facilitate the spiritual well-being of people of all ages, but especially that of young people. Please be honest in your answers.
