coyote’s post got me thinking, about umbrella terms
“spiritual but not religious” has a specific connotation and, in the US, usually means “believes in (the Christian) God but avoids organized religion”
…which is why i strongly dislike that option on surveys (who knows what will be read into it)
and “spiritual” itself seems so…centered around a notion of “spirit” / soul / entities, none of which connect for me
perhaps mystic might be a good word, for my particular location, for witchy supernatural but atheist a-spirit experience
regardless: i’ve been thinking about religious orientation as a nifty phrase.
especially being broken out into religious vs spiritual orientation, and ability to opt out of both
parallels to sexual and romantic orientation, and opting out as quoi or wtf or general grey? maybe?
anyway. “people of any religious or spiritual (or mystic!) non-/orientation”
clunky, but isn’t everything like this.
