A couple questions rendered wrong in Firefox and repeated (and unclickable), so my results may have been skewed. Not sure what my 100% means, but I vaguely remember Liberal Quakers being kinda cool and laid-back. My kind of religion. :p

I tried it and got Unitarian Universalism as my first match. If you read the stuff on it, it seems to be a "You do your thing, she'll do her thing, he'll do his thing, they'll do their thing, it's all good" belief which means, erm, it'll appear high on everyone's lists except maybe the most committed fundie.

Liberal Quakers were next, and appear to be similar in the "It's all good" respect. The third one, Secular Humanists, was about as close as I'm likely to find.

It's all labels. I have my beliefs about the world. The only thing I'm surprised about is that some of the questions actually matched them.

Well, the oddest bit is that you get a lot of 'God is an abstract/exists in all of us' answers on some questions, and then on others, you're stuck with 'God is three entities in one, God is three entities, God is X, God is Y, God is in the TV' with no option to relate to the 'abstract' options in the previous question. It might just be me, but they sort of lead you down a Christian/Non-Christian path without exploring something in-between. Still, it's nice to know I'm one of the more 'Eh. Leave me alone and I'll leave you alone' kinds of religions.
