Certainly, the only religion barred by statute is the Roman Catholic faith.
I should stress, however, that the Prince of Wales is a devoted Protestant and, while he holds a well-publicised interest in and respect for all different religions and is a firm believer in ecumenicalism, his own religious convictions are well documented.
I suspect that all talk of the Prince wishing to convert to Eastern Orthodoxy is total heresay. /thread.jspa?messageID=293832   (1184 words)

Since he is forced to answer for himself, he is glad it is before king Agrippa, who, being himself a proselyte to the Jewish religion, understood all matters relating to it better than the other Roman governors did: I know thee to be expert in all customs and questions which are among the Jews.
Agrippa is so far from thinking him a madman that he thinks he never heard a man argue more strongly, nor talk more to the purpose.
It seems, Agrippa was a scholar, and had been particularly conversant in the Jewish learning, was expert in the customs of the Jewish religion, and knew the nature of them, and that they were not designed to be either universal or perpetual. /com/mhc-com/view.cgi?book=ac&chapter=26&verse=24#Ac26_24   (1542 words)

 Harold Bloom, Jesus and Tanakh MetaFilter
Bloom's statement that it is "absurd to talk about a Judeo-Christian tradition" shows that the theological differences are so important to him that he fails to place these religions in larger context.
Bloom is mellowing in his later years, and I'm glad he's found a subject of real worth beyond bashing New Historicists and Feminists, etc. I liked The American Religion, but he seems to have a very broad conception of Gnosticism--one that obfuscates a lot of his central arguments.

In an era when The Da Vinci Code dominates the bestseller list, it will be fascinating to witness Brenton's take on demythologising religion (the National hopes the play will reopen on Friday).

Today, when abortion is widespread and vigilantly defended, and, thanks to the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, same-sex marriage is growing more likely, Kerry's "Catholic problem" may be how little influence his religion may have.
Kerry tends to be a straightforward "Massachusetts liberal" on social issues. /story/139/story_13980_1.html   (565 words)

 Religion and sexuality - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Roman society, sexual morality concentrated more on the social status of those involved, and their taboos concentrated on high-status men committing any kind of sexual act that was thought of as passive or submissive.
In the religion's teachings, the prohibition against sex outside of marriage is largely related to the proscribed life stages Hindus are bound to follow if they are to attain moksha (the same as the Buddhist concept of nirvana, or enlightenment of the soul).
