I think I will write a quiz to see why I am addicted to quizzes.
Anyway, I probably match my Denomination 95% -- I actually match "Orthodox Quaker" 100%.
I thought I was finished feeling my oats.....
1. Orthodox Quaker (100%)
2. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (95%)
3. Liberal Quakers (84%)

Then I tried What kind of Christian are you?
And I am on the cusp between Bishop Spong Christian (a.k.a. "Biblical Revisionist") and Hillary Rodham Clinton Christian (a.k.a. "Left-Leaning Traditionalist"). Funny that parts of both are true. I would have said "moderate radical neo-orthodox fundementalist emergent" but that wasn't on the list.
Bishop Spong like: You believe in God as a loving creator and that She will forgive you for just about anything. You go to church for the sense of community and the music and because you like to hector your fellow Christians about their backward ways. You read Toni Morrison, Elaine Pagels, and Bishop Spong, the controversial Episcopalian prelate. You enjoyed the "The Da Vinci Code" as a thriller and found its ideas about Christian history thought-provoking, if not always historically accurate. You live in a leafy university town, order Chai at the local coffee house (never Starbucks). You watch TV so you can talk disdainfully about how bad TV is. You give to charity, preferring the local homeless shelter to those bureaucratic national charities. For you, the crux of Christianity is Jesus' revolutionary message of empowering "the least of these."
Hiliary Rodham Clinton (except I really don't like the moniker very much) like: You think the Bible is divinely inspired, and you say Jesus was the Son of God. You admire Martin Luther King Jr., Dorothy Day, Bill Moyers, and the Dalai Lama. While watching "The Passion of the Christ," you cried during the flashback when toddler Jesus fell and Mary ran to him, (yes, I did) but many other parts of the movie bothered you. You eat boneless chicken breasts, organic produce, and designer ice cream. You talk a lot about the value of community. You ardently support gay rights. You believe the surrounding culture is polluted and blame it on big corporations. The power of Christianity for you is the sense of community and the emphasis on love, forgiveness, and helping the less-fortunate.
Then I read the George Bush Sr. list and related to some of those statements, as well.
I really am somewhere between these. I hate boxes and I hate being put in a box. Leftist/liberal? No, I prefer inclusive and radical (Etymology: Middle English, from Late Latin radicalis, from Latin radic-, radix root meaning to procede from the root, or relating to the origin, marked by a considerable departure from the usual or traditional, tending or disposed to make extreme changes in existing views, habits, conditions, or institutions, advocating extreme measures to retain or restore.) Yep. I like the word radical. After all, Jesus was radical.
