    Raised Christian and was religious until I was outed and the congregation got a prayer circle to pray for me to not be gay. Haven't been in a church since then (five years ago) but miss the uplifting feeling I used to get there from trying to learn from the past and to apply it to make myself a better person and to be a more positive presence in the life of others. I've been thinking of going to a UU service - I think I could be accepted there for who I am and it might help me (to paraphrase the old Army slogan) "be all that I can be."

    I never knew anything about the Quakers and then I saw my results, wow!

    O and I was raised Catholic and knew which answers would yield me a 100% you should be Catholic response. I think the test can be done a little better so as not to scream THIS IS THE ANSWER FOR X RELIGION.

    Liberal Quaker?? Does that mean they still can't talk during religious services but are allowed to discretely clear their throats?

    I think it will be the Creationists, actually.... because they don't think beyond what they're told.
