I'm not about to set out my stall at all, and I really don't want to turn this into a discussion about religion per se, more about the degree to which it applies or not to your work / attitude to tasks / participation in the Monastery, but I should simply say that I count myself as 'religious sometimes', with no capital letters involved anywhere.

Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't know how religion could really affect coding one way or another. It's not like religious perlhackers replace ($foo, $bar, $baz) with ($peter, $paul, $michael) or anything... I assume.

Am I completely wrong? Is it irrelevant? Or very relevant - is your faith an integrated part of your life and hence obviously your work?

Or the lack thereof? I'm not a Christian, but to any casual observer I might be mistaken for a one as Jesus, Mary, Joseph, and other biblical figures find their way into the things I shout at my monitor.

Levity aside, I'm curious as to what you meant by religion being a part of work, or affecting one's coding, &c.
