Define forced. As in, I would be killed if I didn't.

I'd switch from being a Protestant to being a Catholic.

Basically if you picked another religion to convert to what would it be?

Killing someone would be to easy. Forced = being tortured, humiliated, having everyone in your family tortured and publicly humiliated, having your nerves pinched all day without sleep, and anything else that would make you switch.

I would take the torture.

But if you were to say I had no choice, then I would say that I would go to Judaism.

God forced me out of Christianity and kept me from ever believing in false deities in false gods, again. All religious people in every religion worship false images of this world because they believe this world is real.

I would become a Catholic monk, probably. Spend my years doing arts and crafts and reading in my cell.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

What if you don't have a religion in the first place?

If I had to pick a popular religious concept I would be a Jedi Knight with one of those long flashlights/torches.
Then I could say "may the force be with you".
Life is what YOU make it,
Most just try and fake it...
