Thunderf00t's,
Like for instant do most female you know have more of an personal relationship with god,
while men are more for community relationship like being a priest and doing more stuff like that?

Also how much do you think about the future and are you that worried?

(for all see the video above and think of the stats he got out of his study)

Y'know, this could have been an interesting discussion if a goldfish hadn't written it...

To answer the header, and the YouTube clip, I'm a subscriber to the old joke that "I don't practice my religion because I know it by heart."
I know the need for local community and church Communion, but having to sit through the "Royal crown of glory" motif in the church hymns and liturgy just grates up my spine as almost insulting to God--
He wanted us to create a sense of worldwide equality, that made us end up liking democracies where no one set of people was stepping on another, what makes us think He wants to see monarchic pomp and circumstance or power plays for his own part, to mirror the reigning self-wielding monarchies we saw in 13th and 14th-century Europe? Does God want to make us think He's Henry VIII?
The imagery's been a bit....stuck there ever since, and needs to be updated to God's more casual image as we would understand it now. Jesus was a casual marketplace guy, it's more possible to see his Dad as one big Obama.

(Oh, and we couldn't see the Carnival clip in North America, whatever the heck that was supposed to be. )

Last I heard women didn't have a choice about becoming priests.

Really depends on the religion for that one.

As a person who believes in God I'll say this all the rules and regulations these churches set were made by man not God and they're nothing more than traditions God never once said in the bible to dress a certain way or eat a certain way you don't need to do that to know the almighty one all you need to do is have trust and faith in him disregard this if you're non-religious. And I've said this many times before people who say they believe in god make that mistake of trying to force it on someone when you can't.

I'd say my relationship with God is more personal than community
oriented.

As a kid, my family TRIED to find a good church... but we never found one we
where satisfied with. Usually due to one of two things: "X denomination is wrong, and
all adherents are going to hell" was the main issue we kept having. (When I was young,
my parents taught me that I shouldn't judge another persons relationship with God)

The second problem was a lot of local churches did not allow
young children to attend the sermons, and my mom and dad
where very against that.

So, in the end I am very religious, but I am not exactly a church-person.
That could change if I sometime find a church i like, but I tend to enjoy less
formal forms of worship.

Yeah, the post is a bit hard to follow.

I think he is ultimately trying to ask if
religious men are more about the religious
community, while religious Women are more about
the Godly aspects of the religion.

It's something I've never really thought about, if that's the
case.

Pretty sure god is out to get me in a personal manner.

I, er, think the YouTube clip was "Men and women are rejecting the church because they want a more open, less dogmatic approach to their faith and the security of science!", but I don't think the OP quite understood it either.

And as for the Samba clip...I got nothin'.

(Move to New England or Minneapolis and become a Lutheran. We've been theological hippies for six hundred years and proud of it.)
