Notes: Hinweise:
In the first 'Affiliations' column, we tried to identify 'belief groups' that this particular group was closely associated with. In der ersten "Mitgliedschaften" Spalte, wir haben versucht zu ermitteln, "Glaube Gruppen", dass diese Gruppe war eng mit. These 'affiliations' are not precise, and since there is sometimes great diversity in a listed religion or denomination, they may not even be accurate in some cases! Diese "Zugehörigkeit" sind nicht genau, und da gibt es manchmal große Vielfalt an einer börsennotierten Religion oder Konfession, die sie möglicherweise gar nicht genau in einigen Fällen! They are offered merely as a general guideline in trying to make sense of the sometimes bewildering variety of belief systems! Sie werden angeboten, nur als eine allgemeine Richtlinie, die versucht, daß es Sinn macht der manchmal verwirrende Vielfalt von Glaubenssystemen zu sein!
