Are you religious ?

Yes and no here are both meaningless.
Whether I am religious or not, I am still the same person and that has no meaning to the world.
Millions of people claim to be Buddhist, Catholic, Muslim … and they don’t agree on the meaning of religion; people of this religion are hating people of other religion.
So, instead of claiming to be religious, I just claim to be human as a son of God (I know, many people don’t care whether I am son of God or son of Satan!). But I make clear to myself that I am son of God, like all other human beings, and we all are supposed to know God, to love God and to be unified as members of one heavenly family.
It is for years, I try to live and to act as by this definition. I don’t claim to be religious and I don’t convert any people to any religion.
In truth, Religion is Divine Education from God, but people have made it into rituals, traditions, walls of separation. So we better look for another word of universal definition for all.

Abdul-Baha says:

The basis of the teaching of Bahá’u’lláh is the Unity of Mankind, and his greatest desire was that love and goodwill should live in the heart of men.

As He exhorted the people to do away with strife and discord, so I wish to explain to you the principal reason of the unrest among nations. The chief cause is the misrepresentation of religion by the religious leaders and teachers. They teach their followers to believe that their own form of religion is the only one pleasing to God, and that followers of any other persuasion are condemned by the All-Loving Father and deprived of His Mercy and Grace. Hence arise among the peoples, disapproval, contempt, disputes and hatred. If these religious prejudices could be swept away, the nations would soon enjoy peace and concord.

(Abdu’l-Baha, Paris Talks, p. 45)
