I actually have Quakers in my family around the time of the New England settlement, some of which were hanged or sold into slavery. Very interesting!

It is kind of interesting...I'd heard about those quakers (and some baptists, too, that got in serious trouble with the New England authorities...

I'm kind of doing some soul thinking right now. Last time I took this quiz, about three years ago, Catholic and Eastern Orthodox came up on top...

The quiz, this time just didn't have the right choices for me....

Well, considering I am Catholic... I'm rather surprised or not, as I'm not very orthodox (reflection of our own church here) but, well... not to take it seriously -would like to know who did it and their level of knowledge as the wording and belief were pretty rudimentary proposed. Jeez... I'm getting all serious with a meme!!! Arrrggghhhhhhh this weekend I was into metaphysics and in aphilosophical mood! Maybe it's winter!LOL The funny thing is that -according to this meme- I can be both Orthodox and Liberal!LOL That's a Gemini for you! :D

1. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (100%)
2. Eastern Orthodox (99%)
3. Roman Catholic (99%)

7. Reform Judaism (88%)
8. Liberal Quakers (86%)

The thing I find to be most interesting about your results is that all the percentages are so very high. I don't know what that means, exactly, but I would venture to guess that you are deeply spiritual in many senses of the word...I know that about you anyway, but I think this reinforces that.

I also think it indicates that you are tolerant of the beliefs of others. Maybe more so than the last time you took the test, as indicated above.

LOL...

But you're probably correct that a spiritual outlook is pretty high up in my psyche...

3. Neo-Pagan (94%)
4. Jainism (93%)
5. Sikhism (90%)

What really surprised me was how high Orthodox Judaism showed up in my results...LOL. I wasn't surprised about the Mahayana Buddhism; right now, I'm probably pretty close in that frame of mind, but with a lot less certainty about things...I'm certainly not consciously Hindu or Neo-pagan, but a little Shintoism maybe slipping into the mix...
