Well... that kind of goes without saying, I guess. But, I do meet lots of people who wear a cross or a crucifix, but say they don't necessarily believe that Jesus was God or aren't sure exactly what they believe, so, that does actually clarify a little bit.
uhm in Germany there is not only the catholic and protestantic church that are non-sect. I believe in everything the bible says and I don't root for one special kind of church though I prefer the ones that are a Freikirche as we call it since they often seem real and alive. I would definitely visit a service in a catholic or protestantic church if it actually contains some kind of nurishment but many just are empty I don't want to put them all in a bad place though... the ones in Gießen are said to be good. But I prefer another church (there are soooo many just slightly different ones in Gießen that you can really choose where to go). The IBC (international baptist church) the people are really open-minded and welcoming and the service fits my belive of fellowship. before that I went to the FEG (freie evangelische gemeinde) and I quite liked it but the ibc just feels like home (a little bit more than the other one). the special thing about those Freikirchen is that they don't get money from the state as the catholic and protestantic church do so it's cool that I actually am free to give my 10% or whatever you may call it, when I want and out of thankfullness and because I think it's the right thing to do... also because of that those churches are much more free to choose their own pastors what means that they can actually also decide if they want to marry someone or whatever what fits the chruch depicted in the bible.
I'm sorry that was long but I don't just want to tell less, so that you may understand something wrong...
oh and I just remembered I still have to tell myself that I am good enough to draw your character >.<
Your explanation is actually very clear. Even though it's the really crazily extreme Christians like Westboro Baptist Church that you hear about most often in the news in the USA, most American Christians are actually very similar to what you described - they go to a church that neither belongs to nor considers itself at odds with any particular denomination. Though, if you look deep enough, a lot of these churches reveal themselves to actually be rather anti-Catholic, which is a little bit of an American tradition - regarding Roman Catholicism as strange, sinister, and definitely un-American (a big part of why I became so fascinated with it myself, probably).
