Hi ^_^ I'm Thomas and currently wandering around the internet and libraries learning about different religions trying to find the right one, I wanted to ask you guys a few questions about your religion. (If I'm mean or offensive I didn't mean to be at all, I'm just curious. Also they are VERY general questions I ask everyone. Also there are questions that I know the answers to from research, I'm just fact checking ^_^).

1) What are some of the basic beliefs that are part of your religion?
2) Monotheistic or Polytheistic?
3) If Poly then is there one that is really the most important?
4) Is there worship at home or in groups (or both?)
5) How modern is it?
6) Are there thoughts that are demanded on modern ideas and events (ie Political campaigns, LGBT rights, music, books, etc.)

Again if those questions are offensive I don't mean it, I'm just trying to figure out what religion would be closest to correct, if any.

Em hotep

1) For this answer you can look at Kemet.org under Kemetic Orthodoxy for, what is KO and FAQ.
2) Polytheism
3) There isn't a one is more important than others.   There are "parents" that those who have given vows to serve them first.
4) Both, but more at home.
5) Fairly modern though some prayers are from antiquity
6) There's no demand that you follow a certain political party, or listen to certain music, read certain books and we our brother and sisters of the LGBTQA community.

If I left anything unsaid I'm sure the rest of the House cab answer as well.

Two more questions I haven't gotten that far in the Q&A and FAQ but I keep seeing Em hotep and Shemsu everywhere, what do those mean?

EDIT: It's probably said later in the Q&A and FAQ if it is you can ignore that question

Em hotep is an ancient Egyptian phase literally meaning "in peace". It is used as a greeting and is often shortened to 'Hotep'.

A shemsu is a formal convert to Kemetic Orthodoxy. For more information on this, I recommend looking through the forums, reading materials at Kemet.org, and utilizing the forum search option.
