I think T's may not comment much on their own relgiousness - but they may be able to help you with it if you bring it up.

I was brought up as an atheist for 25 years. But then I changed. And found it was very helpful for me to change. But now my father also changed to believe. I just cultivated all my religiousness myself (and from my husband - though he is extreme in his own way).

My T was a non religious person, but I felt it would have been good if he was a little bit more religious. I now feel if he was religious, he wouldn't have ended up terminating me so cruelly and cutting off all contact. Somehow he would have seen that it would have hurt me so much. I think when people tend to go by their own mind's power, they get misled many many times, and somehow this trust in God or something above helps you see the right things in the right way.

It is very highly personal and sensitive subject, and maybe you won't like my reply. It is just my personal opinion. And religious views can be cultivated at any time by ourself.

Btw, I am sorry for my above post in yoru thread - I think I may have ended up offending you or not understanding what you said aobut growing up beyond your husband.
