I have taken BeliefNet’s Belief-O-Matic Twice now. Belief-O-Matic is a 20 question personality quiz about your religious and spiritual beliefs & categorizes you by what religion your answers fit most closely to. Now I have been a United Methodist nearly all my life, but both times, it has rated me 100% compatible with… drum roll please… Liberal Quakers. Yes you read that correctly. In fact, here are my top 5;
- Liberal Quakers (100%)
- Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (99%)
- Unitarian Universalism (94%)
- Bahá’í Faith (80%)
- Reform Judaism (76%)
Okay, so I like oatmeal in very liberal quantities… But do I really like it that much? (cough-cough)
The results caught me off-guard at first, but the explanations fit me for the most part. I normally don’t like to do myspace/personality-type quizzes like, “What flavor of popsicle are you?” or “Which Friends Character are you?” but I found this one thought provoking & oddly enlightening. So, where do you rate?
All things considered, I won’t be switching churches anytime soon – even if rural Southern Illinois had any Liberal Quaker communities – but it definitely makes for some interesting reading.
