A person is not necessarily limited to just one religion. Just as Hindus worship more than one god, people can believe in more than one super parent. The catch is that if a person believes in more than one super parent, then that person is not likely to have complete faith in either of them.

There are some people who neither feel a strong pull toward religion nor the need for a government that takes care of them.

Some of those people may have a living parent or parent figure that is actually there for them when needed. Others may just feel more comfortable with the idea of facing life's difficulties without any prospect of help.
