    How many of you wear, carry or have paraphernalia [chains, stickers, bumper stickers, ornaments, clothing] that proclaim your religious or areligious belief?

    Why do you have them?

    I don't have any, except my books, but since I have books of/about many religions thats not an identification of my beliefs

    A chain with a silver crescent moon and star, and a very tiny Qur'an (half the length of your finger).

    I've the following pendants: cross, FSM, ankh and the Egyptian eye symbol said to be used by the Masonic followers.

    What does that say?

    To me, they just looked nice! The cross goes well with a blue themed outfit too.

    O ya, I have a statue of Ganesh too. I bought it as a possible gift, but somehow ended up giving something else, so its lying around in my bookshelves.

    I wear tulasi neck beads all the time

    tulasi is a sacred wood, and it is as good for fools as it is for sadhus, so I fit within the fold nicely

    and also wear tilaka quite regularly... so much so that you can see the slightly less tanned mark when I don't even wear it
    tilaka proclaims one's take on the vedas

    I also have a sikha
    (same reason as tilaka)

    lightgigantic,

    I thought you were a Christian? Guess not ...

    Anyway, I've been looking to get this t-shirt for a while now:

    MMA fighters usually wear it. To "tap" means to submit. When a fighter is in a chokehold, or is in an arm-bar, for instance, he taps his hand to let the referee know he cannot continue the fight. Essentially, when you tap, you submit (you give up).

    Jesus didn't tap!

    I don't wear any religious symbols...but I wear my father's ring everyday, as a reminder to be as quality of a man as he is. Not a religious symol..but a morality symbol.

    The only jewelry or symbol I own is my wedding ring, which is tattooed on.

    You mean you chant on that??

    I guess that makes me a snob with my malas. I have three: One with 108 wooden beads for regular chanting, one with 27 stone beads to take with me when I am out of the house, and one that fits my wrist so that I can wear it anytime.

    You'd probably have to look fairly closely at my bookcase(s) to work out what my likely religious views are. Other than books, I have no obvious paraphernalia which would give away anything about my religious beliefs.
