A Poll for All-Saints Day

This morning I read my friends' journals. One person wrote about today being All-Saints Day, someone else wrote about Halloween and how he believed that the portal to the spirit world increased on Halloween, and someone else journalled about the death of a family member and how other family members were interpreting it from their various spiritual perspectives. That made me wonder about what the members of this community believed about the afterlife, God, the Devil and other after-worldly things. Hence this poll.
