soul man

I now wish to be addressed as Reverend Steve.

I am now an ordained minister of the Universal Life Church of Modesto, California.

My religious preference seems to be, according to Beliefnet.com's Belief-O-Matic,

1. Orthodox Quaker (100%)
2. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (93%)
3. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (88%)
4. Eastern Orthodox (84%)
5. Roman Catholic (84%)
6. Seventh Day Adventist (79%)
7. Liberal Quakers (77%)
8. Unitarian Universalism (63%)
9. Hinduism (62%)
10. Islam (61%)
11. Orthodox Judaism (61%)
12. Bahá'í Faith (56%)
13. Reform Judaism (53%)
14. Mahayana Buddhism (51%)
15. Sikhism (50%)
16. Theravada Buddhism (50%)
17. Jainism (43%)
18. Neo-Pagan (41%)
19. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (41%)
20. Jehovah's Witness (41%)
21. New Age (40%)
22. New Thought (35%)
23. Scientology (33%)
24. Secular Humanism (33%)
25. Christian Science (Church of Christ, Scientist) (28%)
26. Taoism (26%)
27. Nontheist (24%)

Who knew that Richard Nixon and I had something in common, besides the nickname "Tricky Dick"?

What's weird is I was raised Baptist, but I really don't agree with a lot of the dogma they put on you. I'm not a big fan of dogma in any form, though.

I actually do sympathize with the ULC's point of view: your religion is your business, and try to do what's right.

That's it. Simple, right?

Okay, so Im sitting here completely buzzed off of the hugest caramel mocha with an extra shot of caramel known to man so I can study (and by study I mean cruise webpages searching furtively for updates in order to avoid the actual studying process) and so I took this little belief-o-matic thing of Stephen's. Okay, no surprise, I'm 100% mainline to conservative Christian. But get this. I'm 86% MORMON? Mormon? What the crap? I'm more Morman than Catholic or Liberal Christian, by far. Man that's just scary.
