Quick Take on "I'm spiritual, not religious."

I heard that statement again last night. After someone asked me if I was a Christian, they made it plain they were not, however they were "spiritual."

That statement has bothered me as long as I've heard it. What does it mean? It's too vague and ambiguous to have much of any meaning at all.

Botton line, the people who say it:

1. Want the benefits of religion without any of the responsibilities.

2. Want to be able to pick and choose what they like and leave the rest behind - like a giant religious buffet.

That's my take, anyway.
