comment What Christian denominations do not require belief in mainstream Christian core doctrines?
I just wanted to add the name of a denomination that definitely doesn't care whether you believe in the Trinity or the Deity of Jesus, won't be restrictive about other beliefs, and is found in almost every town in the world - Quakers.

comment What traditions include “dearly departed” Christians as participants in communion?
Not really relevant to this question, but I've nowhere else to write it. I wasn't intending to minimize the significant differences between The Lord's Supper and Mass, I just thought the questioner was confused about what 'Communion' was and needed a very simple explanation.

comment What is the difference of icon veneration between various Christian confessions?
None of the churches you are talking about 'worship' icons, and to imply that they do could be taken as offensive. The term you are looking for is 'veneration'. If you are interested in the practices in different churches with regard to icons, I would recommend editing to reflect that.

comment Are there any denominations that teach that the Holy Spirit is matriarchal?
You have to realize that the gender of pronouns in English bibles is largely a matter of choice of the translators, and may or may not reflect the gender (if any) implied in the original languages. If you understood this you should make a more detailed reference to the original languages.

comment What's the justification of eternal torture in hell?
Hell is implicitly a place of suffering. So if you accept Hell as being consistent with the divine, you should have no trouble with people suffering in it. Also God no more has to give you an answer that fit in with your conditions than you have to tell your five-year old why he should pick up his room in terms that satisfy his conditions.

comment Why are there so many First Congregational Churches in the US?
I've always assumed that when the Congregational denomination comes to town they call their church "The Congregational Church". When second one arrives, either by growth or (more likely) schism it renames itself "First Congregational Church" to distinguish it from latecomers.
