Rather, they draw selective beliefs and practices, even if they do not attend services frequently. They are not about to be recruited by other religious groups. Their identification with their religious tradition is fairly solidly fixed, and it's to these groups that they will turn when confronted with marriage, death and, frequently, birth.
