Sorry if your religion was not included in this image.
This graphic is all we could find in the public domain.
Counterclockwise from the North Pole:
Islam, Judaism, Sikhism, Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Taoism

Introductory thoughts:

bullet What is religion? There are many definitions for the term "religion" in common usage. On this web site, we define it very broadly, in order to include the greatest number of belief systems: "Religion is any specific system of belief about deity, often involving rituals, a code of ethics, and a philosophy of life." Thus we include here all of the great monotheistic religions, Eastern religions; Neopagan religions; a wide range of other faith groups, spiritual paths, and ethical systems; and beliefs about the existence of God(s) and Goddess(es). We recognize that most people define "religion" in a much more exclusive manner.
bullet Christianity:
bullet There are many  definitions for this term as well. Again, we use an inclusive definition: "An individual or group is Christian if they sincerely, thoughtfully and devoutly believe that they are Christian." This generates a lot of angry Emails from some visitors to this site who are insistent on excluding the Jehovah's Witnesses, Roman Catholic Church, the Mormons and some other denominations as sub-Christian, quasi-Christian non-Christian, or anti-Christian. 
bullet We treat Christianity in greater detail than other religions, simply because about 75% of North Americans identify themselves with that religion. Christians outnumber the next largest organized religions, Judaism and Islam,  by about 40 to 1 in the U.S. and Canada. We are not in any way implying that Christianity is superior or inferior to other religions. It is simply much more popular.
bullet Destructive, doomsday cults: These are fortunately few in number, and are listed elsewhere.

Information for these essays was extracted from reliable sources, and believed to be accurate and reasonably unbiased. Where possible, they have been reviewed by a group (typically 3 or more) of persons who follow the belief before the material is placed online. 

"World" Religions:

There are many, long established, major world religions, each with over three million followers. We have shown the five largest North American religions in bold:

bullet Baha'i SymbolBaha'i Faith
bullet Buddhism Symbol Buddhism
bullet Christian Symbol Christianity
Christian groups, denominations and families (Amish to The Way)
 
bullet Confucius Symbol Confucianism
 
bullet Hinduism Symbol Hinduism
 
bullet Islam Symbol Islam
bullet Jainism SymbolJainism
bullet Judaism Symbol Judaism
bullet Shinto Symbol Shinto
bullet Sikhism Symbol Sikhism
bullet Taoism
bullet Vodun (Voodoo)

Neopagan symbol1 Neopagan Religious Faiths

Neopagan faiths are modern-day reconstructions of ancient Pagan religions from various countries and eras. They experience a high but diminishing level of discrimination and persecution in North America. They were once rarely practiced in public for reasons of safety. This is rapidly changing for the better.
bullet Asatru (Norse Paganism) *
bullet Druidism
bullet Goddess Worship
bullet Wiccan Symbol Wicca
bullet Witchcraft

Notes:
bullet Many followers of Asatru regard themselves as "Heathens" rather than "Neopagans. "
bullet Many followers of these religions refer to themselves as "Pagans." We use the term "Neopagan" because it is less ambiguous. "Pagan" has a variety of unrelated meanings.

Other organized Religions

These are smaller religions, with a well defined belief in deity, humanity and the rest of the universe. Of the many hundreds of faith groups in the world, we have chosen these because of their historical significance, or because of the massive amount of misinformation that has been spread about them in North America:

bullet Caodaism
bullet Damanhur Community
bullet Druze
bullet Eckankar
bullet Elian Gonzalez religious movement
bullet Gnosticism
bullet Gypsies
bullet  Hare Krishna Symbol\ Hare Krishna - ISKCON
bullet Ifa, the religion of the Yoruba people of West Africa
bullet Lukumi
bullet Macumba
bullet Mowahhidoon
bullet Native American Spirituality
bullet Rom, Roma, Romani, Rroma, (a.k.a. Gypsies)
bullet Santeria
bullet Elian Gonzalez religious movement
bullet Satanism Symbol Satanism; The Church of Satan
bullet Scientology
bullet Unitarian Universalist Symbol Unitarian-Universalism
bullet The Creativity Movement (formerly called World Church of the Creator)
bullet The Yazidi branch of Yazdanism
bullet Zoroastrianism
