Hmmmmm, I guess what caught me by surprise was the top end.

"mainline Conservative Christian Protestant" - @ 100%
"mainline Liberal Chritian Protestant" - @ 99%
"Roman Catholic/ Orthodox Catholic" - @ 84%
"Islam" - @ 65 %
"Judaism" - @ 65%
"Mormon" -@ 50%

and the Bottom...

"Humanism" - @ 24%

I'm born and raised a Roman Catholic, yet the survey/test/religious IQ quotient suggests that I'm wrapped a little tighter than that. Well, maybe not, since I prefer the term "American Catholic". However, I do seem to enjoy going to and being part of Episcapalian churches. I liked going to the Mosque in Greenbelt?, Ohio (what a beautiful building made for God). The people (there that day), weren't so beautiful though. Maybe I insulted them somehow.

Anywho, I don't consider myself a fundemantalist for Christ. I'm just an average GI Joe who knows when his butt was saved, and who did the ultimate saving (time and time again).

Very interesting test there, Mr. Brian; much food for thought.

Well, I took this again out of curiosity and am pretty surprised that the results did not change much from the first time. This time I did not answer any of the questions that I really have not made my mind up about or those that I think should always be left up to the individual, no matter their religious path.

interesting. i already attend Quaker worship weekly, so that fits pretty well. i went to a local UU meeting a couple of times, but that just didn't seem to click. also went on a Zen (mahayana, i suppose) temple this summer with a friend and sat for a Zazen session.

hola ISFP,
a quick question: what is it that you are seeking in those belief systems that you are entering regularly?

hello, Persona. that's a good question...i want to feel a sense of community, certainly, which is why i'm looking for a congregation. i know that i'm personally turned away from dogma or a rigidly structured belief system, which is why i tend to seek out faiths that emphasize one's personal path.

how about you?

I realized the importance of the question after I was asked it :)

I dont know ISFP, let me try to tell you using a poem that i really like..

i'm on a long and narrow road
on my way morning and night
i don't know what state i'm in
i'm on my way morning and night

from the moment i came into this world
began walking at the same time
in a place with 2 doors
i'm on my way morning and night

if ever it is thought of in depth
it'll seem far away when it's seen
the path is worth one minute in quantity
im on my way morning and night

PNG is confused at the state of this....
some laugh and some cry
to reach upto the place of object (the goal)
im on my way morning and night



yeah, im just going ISFP and i really dont know in which state i am...

good luck in your search friend, hope you'll face what you are looking :)

hey, Knight.

KnightoftheRose said:

actually no, i wouldn't say so. they have a reputaion for being poorly understood and being seen as "old fashioned", though.

when most people think "Quaker" they think "guy on the oatmeal box" with his wide-brimmed hat and colonial attire. the old-fashioned clothes are very rarely worn these days (if at all)- most Quakers i've seen come to meeting dressed in khakis, skirts, dresses, or jeans.

and as far as prudery...i have the feeling that idea might come from the colonial attire that most people associate with Quakerism. Quakers value respect for others and one's self in all scenarios, including sexual ones. the congregation i attend is pretty much non-ruffled by sexual matters- lgbtq folks are openly welcomed, and i've yet to see anyone turned away based on their sexual orientation or sexual history.

Didn't know this was a race, or a competition. But you have a good point.

I choose...none of the above...does that count?
