What are your beliefs?

One of my friends sent me his results from Beliefnet, so I thought it might be appropriate to revisit my own:

1. Liberal Quakers (100%)
2. Unitarian Universalism (96%)
3. Reform Judaism (89%)
4. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (88%)
5. Neo-Pagan (77%)
6. Secular Humanism (74%)
7. New Age (66%)
8. Mahayana Buddhism (63%)
9. Orthodox Quaker (63%)
10. Bahá'í Faith (62%)
11. Sikhism (60%)
12. Theravada Buddhism (58%)
13. Orthodox Judaism (56%)
14. Jainism (52%)
15. New Thought (51%)
16. Islam (50%)
17. Taoism (48%)
18. Scientology (44%)
19. Nontheist (44%)
20. Hinduism (41%)
21. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (38%)
22. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (38%)
23. Seventh Day Adventist (38%)
24. Christian Science (Church of Christ, Scientist) (31%)
25. Eastern Orthodox (31%)
26. Roman Catholic (31%)
27. Jehovah's Witness (26%)

I found myself rating many of the questions as a low priority. A few of the social questions I did rate as a high priority. I wonder how much that really affects your results. The first two religions are fairly liberal and accepting of divergent beliefs. The next three — Reform Judaism, Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants and Neo-Pagan — all seem intrinsicly different from each other, at least in a theological sense. When I read the descriptions, it seems they all coincide with my social beliefs. Theologic beliefs versus social beliefs seems to be a reoccuring theme throughout this process.

I think it would be interesting if a bunch of people took the quiz and posted their results here.

I'll write about The Chosen and the rabbi situation soon.
