I simply wish to know what the most prominent religion of WP users is. My suspicion is Christianity. For question sake, Athrism and Agnosticism is NOT a religion, instead the complete lack of religion. However I will accept Buddhism, Scientology and other cults.

Scientology is on the list, but not Shintoism, Confucianism, or Taoism? /sigh (Edit: Buddhism always gets all the love)

Taoist here. Not a very GOOD one, mind you, but a Taoist nonetheless (non-denominational Taoist, if that matters to you).

Apologies but these religions are the most common US religions.

I know. I was joking.

Which I suppose makes me a pretty good Taoist. ^.^

They aren't "religions" but they are "theological belief".

Indeed. Your poll is at least 2 options short.

This discussion was supposed to be primarily comments. Do not waste all of you critic idiosyncrasies on the poll. If the poll is a priority, then instead of complaining, select other!

The act of following a cult! That is terribly elementary.

Cult is a subjective term for any religion that isn't accepted by whatever group is using the term. The objective use of the term cult is to simply apply it to all religion because all religions are cults.
