You know, I just don't think it's right that you lump "Protestant" and "Atheist" together.

I didn't see the religion of the Canaanites listed.  I worship Ba'al.  

Seriously, this poll is interesting.  Non-Chalcedonian and Oriental Orthodox are listed separately, Protestant is linked to atheist, and nationalism is listed as a religion.  What's Slavic paganism, anyway?  Do people still believe that stuff?  And what does "the Catholic Faith, and you are know as Catholic" mean?

Slavic paganism/Nationalism should be one choice. My mistake and yes there are plenty of slavic pagans/

well you choose which one you prefer NonChalcedonian or Oriental Orthodox.

Well I was going to write "the Catholic Faith, of which your title is Orthodox" but that was way to modernist ecumenical[not to be confused with true ecumenism].

I chose OO, of course, but Non-Chalcedonian and Oriental Orthodox are commonly understood to be the same thing.  Why list them twice?  And why "the Catholic Faith, of which your title is Orthodox"?  Why not just list RC/EC, EO, OO, etc. individually?

And what's with the Elizabethan English?

Assyrian is not Non Chalcedonian. This poll is flawed. Hence I must shut down the thread.

No my poll has been sabotaged!! My Russian style choices have been replaced with clean cut, German style responses.

None of the Above.... I'm Anglican

And I'm glad I didn't see the first version with, I gather, an entry for "Protestant/Atheist".    :-

An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

Protestant's a very broad category...could you at least split it into a couple of subgroups?
