My Results from the Belief-o-Matic Test

I take this test periodically. Each time, Neo-Pagan and Quaker come up in the top three. Other high scoring traditions for me are New Age (yuck...what's wrong with me?) and Unitarian Universalism. I took this quiz and had Neo-Pagan at 11% with UUism and Liberal Quakers following with 90% then I realized I had not bothered to indicate how seriously I took my responses. I went back in and indicated that I take pacifism and women's equality very seriously but my perception of the nature of "God" far less seriously. I know women and homosexual people deserve justice and dignity. I'm also pretty sure I don't have the ultimate answers to the nature of the Divine. So that changed my score to what you see below. It is a fun quiz and is one of the multiple things that led me to the Friends.
