Interesting

In March of last year, I took one of those online quizzes to find out what religion I am/should be.

I recently found a more in depth one and here are the results.

1. Unitarian Universalism (100%)
2. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (98%)
3. Liberal Quakers (98%)
4. Neo-Pagan (93%)
5. Mahayana Buddhism (92%)
6. New Age (85%)
7. Bah�'� Faith (78%)
8. Theravada Buddhism (77%)
9. New Thought (72%)
10. Hinduism (71%)
11. Orthodox Quaker (71%)
12. Christian Science (Church of Christ, Scientist) (68%)
13. Secular Humanism (67%)
14. Jainism (65%)
15. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (62%)
16. Reform Judaism (61%)
17. Scientology (61%)
18. Sikhism (59%)
19. Taoism (57%)
20. Jehovah's Witness (54%)
21. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (53%)
22. Orthodox Judaism (51%)
23. Islam (43%)
24. Nontheist (43%)
25. Seventh Day Adventist (35%)
26. Eastern Orthodox (29%)
27. Roman Catholic (29%)

The interesting thing to me is that this new quiz allows you to click on each religion and read basic FAQs about them. I now know why I am confused as to religion...

I believe in the deity from one...
the incarnations from another...
the origin of life and the universe from another...
the after death philosophy from another...
the undeserved suffering philosophy from another...
and salvation beliefs from yet another.

The mind boggles at my options. And with so many voices all screaming that they are right, it's no wonder this world is so screwed up...let alone what it does to my sanity.

In that case, the Unitarian church probably *is* your best bet!!

I still crack up when I drive down the highway nearest the new house...Litter removal by...Local witches and wicca practitioners. I was sure I saw the sign wrong the first time.

No wonder you "feel" confused. Geez!

Wanna share that cocktail? How far apart are we again?
