Otherwise, none of them, as I do not like organized religion... The closest would be Deism, Pandeism, and Jainism probably...

I do seem to really, really like Shinto in works of fiction though. I also like Catholicism in fiction too (due to the amount of sociopolitical power they used to have), but more as villains (A Certain Magical Index) rather than something more heroic (Trinity Blood).

I like ones that produced art. That is all. Protestant, ROman Catholic, etc. I like pretty art. Like Caravaggio. Or Raphael, and many lesser known ones.

I'd say Hinduism has always been the most interesting to me, but also Islam as well.

However, I'm also fascinated by some of the ancient Mesopotamian religions. They have intriguing creation accounts and most aspects of their religions seem interesting to me.

Buddhism as well, but I think i'm primarily interested in how it relates to Hinduism. I'm ashamed to admit that I don't know much about either, and so am not familiar with their similarities and distinctions. It's one of the many things i'd like to study when I have the time.

The church in A Certain Magical Index is actually the Church of England. They might look Catholic but they're not.

The Bahá'í Faith.
in short, they believe that the founders of the world's major religions were all messengers sent to Earth by the same God to create the religion that was necessary at the time and place. They also believe that all humans are essentially equal, but that the differences between them should be celebrated.

Personally, I dislike the ones that produced art, because they usually restricted art to the same religious subjects. I find the history of western art to be pretty boring once it starts becoming oversaturated with the same subjects, same themes, and same stories over and over and over again with the only difference being how they are portrayed and the skill, talent, and ingenuity of the artist.

The Roman Catholic Church was there too, which was what I was talking about...

Roman/Greek pantheon due to my past interest in Latin, to whatever extent that counts.

Zoroastrianism.
Special mention to Inuit folklore because there's no heaven or hell. There are spirits like the tuurngait but not anything like Yahweh, Allah, Zeus, Mazda, etc. who is supreme and almighty, which is really interesting not from some dumb fedoratheist standpoint but from the standpoint of that most cultures have a god who heads a pantheon (polytheism) or is the sole creator of everything (monotheism). It's pretty odd.
