Is there a definition of religion and religiousity that would include Pagan religions as well as JCI?

I'm at a loss for one. I had an argument yesterday with a Christian collegue who thinks all religions center around the question of good & evil.

I'm very thankful for suggestions. It really bothers me that I can't talk to Christians on an equal basis, because I'm not regarded as a religious person. Isn't there a basis definition that would be very open?

These are the definitions I found from answers.com.  It doesn't say anything about the belief of good or evil.  Hope this helps some.

re·li·gi·os·i·ty (rĭ-lĭj'ē-ŏs'ĭ-tē) pronunciation

re·li·gion (rĭ-lĭj'ən) pronunciation

         2. A personal or institutionalized system grounded in such belief and worship.
