    Liberal, atheist.

    I got the Jewish Sabbath wrong. Any others?

    I don't feel too bad about #14, Nirvana is also part of Hinduism, but it means being one with God to them. I crossed up The First and the Second Awakenings in #15. Great question.

    Haha... I already took the test online at the PEW website.

    Don't you think that question 10 is a little bit of a trick question?

    From a practical standpoint the ACLU, and other phony Pro-Atheist organizations, sue school districts all the time.

    The fact of the matter is, that the Supreme Court has been very schizophrenic on the question of how much religion the Federal Police State will allow into public school.

    The fact is that many many people missed this question, that is a narrow legal question, does not mean that they did not know about religion, nor that they were not aware in a general way that religion is under assault in the United States by Atheist activists.

    It is legal to sing songs about Atheism or Atheist in schools, but songs about Christ, during Christmas, is not legal.

    PEW is a left leaning, Atheistic think tank. It is clear that the questions here, were hand picked to get a predetermined outcome. An outcome that seems to indicate that Atheists are very knowledgeable about ethics and worship.

    They are not.

    The few questions that are specifically about worship, and ethics, namely questions like question 3, Atheists did pathetically.

    On questions like question 3, Mormons did far and away better than any other group.

    I seriously doubt that in a true religious/ethics quiz, that only had questions like question 3, if anybody else, could even come close to Mormons.

    That is just my opinion, based on general knowledge, and common sense.
