Since I've been only answering so far, I figured I should try creating some puzzles of my own, too. Please be gentle. :-)

Anyway, here's a rebus-like puzzle, but this time the answers are single words that are related to religion(s).

Everything in the pictures is strictly wordplay, the answers are not related to animals in any way. (The animal theme is there just so that we can get pretty pictures.)

So, here we go:

1: Cartoon insect holding a picket sign

2: A fluffy hoppy animal only partially within the frame

3: Drooling bear with vision problems

4: Person apparently using a kitten as a drug

5: Two fish arranged in a diagonal cross pattern

6: A feline composed of polygonal flat pieces

7: A golden lab nursing her puppies

Granted, some of these might warrant a "groanworthy" or "isn't that a bit farfetched" tag, but luckily we don't have those. Let's see if you guys can figure these out.

And just to avoid any confusion, let's repeat:

Each answer will be a single word that is related to religion.

  • $\begingroup$ To be completely honest, number 6 isn't probably going to make much sense to anyone. It seemed like a good joke at the time, though :-) $\endgroup$ – Bass Nov 20 '17 at 14:24
  • $\begingroup$ Is it a low polytheistic cat face? $\endgroup$ – Rick van Osta Nov 20 '17 at 14:32
  • $\begingroup$ Ajay, I'm sure you're right (except that you need a double "b") -- but you should probably make that an answer rather than a comment. (For questions like this, it's not unusual to have partial answers.) $\endgroup$ – Gareth McCaughan Nov 20 '17 at 14:40
  • $\begingroup$ @Gareth I commented because I thought answering just one wouldn't be enough. Anyway, will keep adding to the answer I posted. :) $\endgroup$ – Ajay Brahmakshatriya Nov 20 '17 at 14:42

I will add the answers as I figure out

1 (answered by @GarethMcCaughan)

Protest-ant

2

Rabbi = Rabbit with the end removed

3

Salvator, Latin for Saviour = salivator missing an I (eye).
(OP originally intended Salvation, with the same logic, but Salvator works too)

4 (Also guessed by @elias moments after I edited in)

Catholic = cat+holic. He is addicted to snorting cats

5 (answered by @MOehm)

Codex - Ancient manuscripts related to religion.

6 (answered by @APrough)

Cathedral - Cat + (poly)hedral

7

Dogma - it is the principles on which a faith is based

    $\begingroup$ Pretty sure 1 is a Protest-Ant :-). (Feel free to edit this into your answer.) $\endgroup$ – Gareth McCaughan Nov 20 '17 at 14:41

    $\begingroup$ 4 must be a cat-holic $\endgroup$ – elias Nov 20 '17 at 14:58

    $\begingroup$ No. 5 could be a Cod X or Codex. $\endgroup$ – M Oehm Nov 20 '17 at 15:27

    $\begingroup$ #6 - cathedral - probably self explanatory $\endgroup$ – APrough Nov 20 '17 at 17:44

    $\begingroup$ The bear is salivating and missing an eye, so he might be the sal(i)vator. I've added that -- at the risk of looking silly, of course. $\endgroup$ – M Oehm Nov 20 '17 at 19:36
