1. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (100%)Mind you, there is only one question that deals with the topic of homosexuality - and I answered the same both times. The bulk of the questions deal with the nature of god and our responsibility here on earth.

I think the question that was likely the biggest factor in the change was
Q12. Choose ALL statements below that represent your beliefs.I know, as a good Mormon boy, I should have chosen the first option - but the truth is, I just don't know anymore. Strict obedience to the rites, practices, precepts, commandments, prohibitions, laws, sacraments, or ordinances of the LDS faith require me to deny my sexuality and to renounce the homosexual actions of others. I can't do that - I won't do that. Nor do I believe or accept that God wants me to. I love my queer friends; and, I am genuinely happy for those who've found a life soul mate. "Men are that they might have joy" (2 Nephi 2:25) - and if some individuals can only find true joy in the arms of a person of their same gender, where is the sin?
- Adhere strictly to the rites, practices, precepts, commandments, prohibitions, laws, sacraments, or ordinances of the faith to be rewarded after life.
- All, even the wicked, are rewarded after life (e.g., go to heaven, merge with God) as God(s) is infinitely good and forgiving.
- Extinguish all cravings, attachments, and ignorance, or rid oneself of all impurities, to become fully enlightened.
- Learn all life's lessons through rebirths.
- Realize your true nature as purely spirit (or soul) and not body, as one with the Absolute, Universal Soul.
- Live very simply; renounce worldly goals and possessions.
- Tap the power of the Ultimate (God, or the divine) through intercessory methods such as psychics, channeling, tarot cards, crystals, magic.
- Humankind is 'saved' through human effort rather than through religious or spiritual means.
So, which option did I choose? I didn't pick any of them, I left the question blank.
Now, I know this is just yet another silly internet quiz which shouldn't be taken too seriously. But, could it be an indicator that I'm ever so slowly moving to the [GASP!] left? Or maybe my inner self - the real me, if you will - is beginning to surface. What if the real me turns out to be a flaming liberal?
