I was a little surprised by the posting by "+" which claimed that Christians don't recognize anyone else's approach to God.
Haven't you ever heard of ecumenism?
Though there have been many, many times when Christians have been intolerant of other faiths, there have also always been Christians in dialogue with them, and the same is true today. I recommend to Cass that he (or she, I don't know) find a religious community that is welcoming and open, whatever the denomination. In my travels, I have met tolerant Catholics and intolerant Episcopalians (and vice versa), both tolerant and intolerant Jews, and many many other variations on the theme. I wish you Godspeed, and good luck.
