    well you must have some mighty stiff DM's.

    the PHB states a paladin does not have to specificly worship a deity, many bits of the "fluff" leads one to believe they would. "Divine power protects the paladin and gives her special powers." divine usualy refers to a deity(http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/divine). but others seem to oppose this. "All paladins, regardless of background, recognize in each other an eternal bond that transcends culture, race, and even religion.

    in closing. most of the gamers i know, and that is quite a bit, see most paladins as church members, but it realy depends totaly on the setting(therefore DM).

    It's been very interesting, but I don't think anyone is about to be convinced of the other side's view - and I'm honestly out of anything new to add :)

    I think we're just going to have to agree to disagree on the absurdity or otherwise of 'ungodly clergy'.

    Thanks everyone - it's been an enjoyable discussion :)

    Fair enough. I enjoyed it too.
    It is a joyful thing indeed to hold intimate converse with a man after one’s own heart, chatting without reserve about things of interest or the fleeting topics of the world; but such, alas, are few and far between.
