In reply to comment: darn, I can't be a deist either! (see in situ)

It is my understanding...

that Deism is to believe in an arbitrary god with no strings attached by organized religion or associated texts (often not subscribing to apocalyptic prophecies). I wish there were more religious people of that flavor.

I used deist in a more general sense to refer to followers of any deity (since I couldn't think of a more accurate word to state the concept concisely).
