I'm this religion but... - December 6th 2013, 05:51 PM

I'm trying to find religion.
When I was little I went to church. Different ones. All different types of Christianity. None of them felt right. So I decided just not to believe. But I couldn't do that either. I do believe.
Just not 100% what the bible says.
Something about Christianity rubs me the wrong way. I don't think being catholic is for me either. I experimented with Buddhism and Hindu and even Taoism.
I think I have finally found the religion that fits the best for me but I don't agree with it 100% and there are some things I don't follow or do.
So my question is... Can you be a religion that you don't 100% agree with or 100% follow??
I think my religion is Islam. I feel the most comfortable with it. But there are some things that are hard for me to do or I wont do. I have 2 dogs and in Islam, dog hair is considered unclean and you cannot pray with hair on you. Also, I am married to a Catholic and he is supposed to convert- he is not going to. I don't wear a hijab and I have never been to a mosque. I don't always pray 6 times a day and when I do I don't face mecca. I haven't ever did Ramadan. --- I suck at this religion. But what the quarn says makes the most sense to me.
So can you be a religion if you don't follow it to the T?

I know plenty of people who don't follow their religion "to the T", as you put it. I know Christians that don't go to church every Sunday, for example. If you believe in something and it makes you happy, even if you don't believe all of it, you should still stick with it. If you like it, it'll work. Be happy with that.
