INDIFFERENTISM

Denial that the worship of God or the practice of religion is a grave duty of human beings as creatures who are totally dependent on God. It is practical indifferentism when a person acts in this way without necessarily denying that God deserves to be honored and served. Agnostic indifferentism is the attitude that one religion is as good as another, because it is claimed that there is no way of telling the difference.
