    Mrs. Reb I would say that a secular humanist pretty much a total non believer.

    This test is interesting for one because I would not put myself in a Quaker category. I am certainly not a non violent person which is the paramount trait I would identify with a Quaker.

    I don't really identify with any religious order though I was raised and Baptized in the Baptist church although I am not that fundamentalist.

    Being an agnostic for more than thirty years I am still learning and defining my Christian self.

    Interesting quiz but almost meaningless(IMO). Might be of some use if you're new in town and are looking for a church, but I think they are more interested in getting people to look at the ads sprinkled throughout the questions.

    It's actually a plant by the Religious Right... The ads just keep the lights on.

    The closer you get to being a social conservative with religious convictions, the closer you are to Islam.


    Islam is the MOST conservative of all religions.

    Islam actually has less to do with conservatism and much more with radicalism.
    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.

    I am sure that there are millions of moderate Muslims that would choose to disagree with that statement.

    Or rather, more precisely, that statement is derived from xenophobia, and an ignorant point of view when it comes to religious tolerance on your part.

    Only because they are not familiar with the Quran.

    Read it sometime.

    I have read several passages in my time.

    All I got from that book is that your god and their god is (gasp) the same. Heck, some people might even elude to the idea that Muhammed and Jesus Christ might have indeed been the same figure...


    But, hey, like all things in life, it's all in the perception of things. History has a fascinating ability to muddle up the facts over time.

    The only things muddled are the minds of those who think Christianity and Islam closely resemble each other.

    Read the WHOLE thing, Ole. Good grief.

    I went to the website that the quiz came from, and after looking around a bit, it seems that I was headed in the right direction with my first post. As I understood it, the website exists to help people determine which religion with which they would probably be most in agreement.
