Unitarian Universalism is simply a 'religion' for people who don't like religion. Atheists are welcome.


Unitarian Universalism is a religious community characterized by support for a "free and responsible search for truth and meaning". Unitarian Universalists do not share a creed; rather, they are unified by their shared search for spiritual growth and by the belief that an individual's theology is a result of that search and not obedience to an authoritative requirement... Universalists do not necessarily subscribe to the historic beliefs of Unitarianism and Universalism, espousing a rather hands-off approach to religion, whereby the followers can be atheist, theist, or any point in between. Wikipedia


Highlights of my quiz result

1. Unitarian Universalism (100%)
2. Theravada Buddhism (91%)
3. Secular Humanism (81%)

This makes sense in that I am a fundamentally an atheist and a scientific materialist who was raised a Christian in a mostly Theravada Buddhist society. If I were to adopt one of these descriptions, though, it would be the third: secular humanist.

8. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (53%)

This was my upbringing, and I am not surprised to see a fifty percent fit with it.

9. New Age (49%)

This upsets me. I despise belief systems that have neither antiquity nor intellectual heft to make them respectable. Forty-nine percent alignment is much too close!

12. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (37%)

Well, I wouldn't be averse to having a few extra wives, but that's about all the similarity I see between Mormon belief and my own. Low as the alignment is, it still seems high to me.

27. Taoism (19%)

That was the lowest result, which is a bit odd considering that I actually accept the philosophical ideas of Taoism, if not the religious side of it.

Taking the quiz as an American Christian

Just for fun (and also as a kind of check on its accuracy), I re-took the quiz, this time offering answers that I imagine a born-again, upstanding, Godfearing, guntoting American Republican Christian would give. This is what I got:

1. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (100%)
2. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (91%)
3. Jehovah's Witness (85%)
4. Seventh Day Adventist (83%)

with Eastern Orthodox (the most hidebound of the traditional Christian denominations) and Roman Catholicism at fifth and sixth place respectively.

The 'top picks' of my earlier quiz result came in as follows:

19. Theravada Buddhism (28%)
20. Unitarian Universalism (23%)

and

26. Secular Humanism (8%)

Which is pretty much what I'd expect. However,

27. Taoism (7%)

came last again!

What fun. I wouldn't take it too seriously, though. It's a bit oversimplified, and plays too much to American religious stereotypes and controversies. In particular, Islam is terribly ill-represented, with no distinction made between the Sunni and Shia congregations, which is absurd, like lumping Catholics and Protestants together as 'Christians'. And there is not a word about Sufism, which is a slander on the most enlightened and liberal face of Islam. Indeed, the whole mystical tradition, of which Sufism is a part and which exists in all faiths, is completely ignored.

my ideal religion is

NONE

religion is for people that want to believe in something ... like believing in the coming of aliens, messiahs or super heroes

I prefer to consider every possibility and to not to waste my brain giving it to organizations to profit from it

I prefer to think for myself

i'm going back to review the posters results
and looking at the number of different religious ways are included in the top 50%


i've seen as few as 7 religious philosophies in the top 50% of a persons response favoritism
i've also seen as many as 24 branches of faith meeting that 50% threashold (out of 27 selections)


having very few shared might indicate the person is very adamant on their views
having a great number of faiths above 50% might indicate they are very open-minded (or perhaps
just fence sitters?...the decision is yours)


myself i was 50% open to shared views on religion with 11 different religions... ergo- loosely open,
or else mildly biased...let the reader choose

I was raised Lutheran, searched for a church that matched my beliefs when I learned Lutheran did not, and chose my religion when I was 16. I'm LDS and grateful I am. There has not been even one time in my life that I question my choice, and I'm glad my parents allowed me to do so.
I think the one thing I missed was about being gay. I don't believe being gay keeps you out of heaven anymore than being an adulterer does as both are engaging in sex with someone not their spouse. But I don't put a lot of weight on that. My great-aunt had the same partner for at least 50 years, and I always knew they loved each other. They were both great ladies. What they did in the privacy of their bedroom is not for me to judge. That has always given me a more moderate outlook. I still believe that only a man and a woman can be married.

I'm really surprised by number 4. Really, really surprised. I was raised Protestant, so I'm not surprised that it showed up. The only draw-back to this whole thing is that it assumes that I want another label for myself, and that I'm interested in an organized worship of something. Other than that, it is still interesting (especially since I haven't even heard of half the things that showed up).

It says I'm a secular humanist and possibly a unitary/universalist. Why wasn't agnostic, pacifest, humanist, skeptic listed? That's how I would prefer to label myself, if I had to label myself at all lol.
