I just realized that the following line is incorrect

importScriptURI( 'http://religion.wikia.com/index.php?title=User:Granpa/wikia.css&action=raw&ctype=text/javascript' );

Even though the given url does indeed open to the right page it doesnt work presumably because type=text/javascript is incorrect.

what type should I use to make this work correctly?

I already tried the obvious.

Here's a couple different imports you could use (these are JavaScript):

// strict, fails on syntax errors
importScriptURI( 'http://religion.wikia.com/index.php?title=User:Granpa/wikia.css&action=raw&ctype=text/css' );
 
OR
 
// lenient, doesn't care about syntax errors as much
importStylesheetPage('User:Granpa/wikia.css', 'religion');

Warning: The stylesheet you are trying to use has a number of syntax errors, of which the following may only be a few:

@media print {     /* << unclosed */
 
/* further down... */
 
td,
th,
html, 
article, 
span, 
div                /* << missing comma */
li,
pre,
dd,
a
 
/* further down... */

Thank you. I have a second account and I am trying to import it into this page
http://religion.wikia.com/wiki/User:Granpa2/wikia.css
I have tried both and neither works.
Now that I think about it, we were importing navigation popups into our sitewide javascript page using a very similar line and it stopped working many months ago.

our javascript page is empty now but here is what it looked like before it mysteriously stopped working.

I wouldn't know anything about why your navigation pop ups don't work. It appears to be a script from Wikipedia, and there's no guarantee that scripts from Wikipedia will work (or continue to work) here on Wikia, as both sites are quite different.
w:c:religion:User:Granpa2/wikia.css <-- You can't put JavaScript in a CSS page like that! The import statements I gave you above were JavaScript.
// One way to import
// http://religion.wikia.com/index.php?title=User:Granpa/wikia.css
 
// NOTE: This is JavaScript, so it has to go on a .js page
// (This is the same as the example I gave above)
 
importStylesheetPage('User:Granpa/wikia.css', 'religion');

/* Another way to import */
/* http://religion.wikia.com/index.php?title=User:Granpa/wikia.css */
 
/* NOTE: This is CSS, so it has to go on a .css page */
 
@import url("http://religion.wikia.com/index.php?title=User:Granpa/wikia.css&action=raw&ctype=text/css");
