LOL! You sound like my T, Dinah! He said the exact same thing when I asked him if it was okay to talk to him about sex. :)

If you wish to discuss religion or spirituality, a therapist should ideally be able to talk to you about how to overcome your difficulties or reach what you want, regardless of their own religion or lack thereof.

What about if you don't know what you want? I am scared to talk to him about this because ( i know T's are suppose to be objective) but I seem to offend everyone I talk to about his when I ask questions. I grew up in a very religious small town where everyone was either amish or a form of it, and I was outcasted by everyone in my school because I didn't belong to their church. My best friend was catholic and they snubbed her too. We were good people, but it sad that we were judged this way. So I am scared that I am going to be judged by my T (even though they aren't suppose to do this, but I think they can't help it sometimes).
