my catholic quiz results

I took this twice and twice got the same results, so I suppose they must be accurate. I was so sure I'd be "New Catholic" or "Evangelical Catholic":

You scored as Traditional Catholic. You look at the great piety and holiness of the Church before the Second Vatican Council and the decay of belief and practice since then, and see that much of the decline is due to failed reforms based on the "Spirit of the Council". You regret the loss of vast numbers of Religious and Ordained clergy and the widely diverging celebrations of the Mass of Pope Paul VI, which often don't even seem to be Catholic anymore. You are helping to rebuild this past culture in one of the many new Traditional Latin Mass communities or attend Eastern Catholic Divine Liturgy. You seek refuge from the world of pornography, recreational drugs, violence, and materialism. You are an articulate, confident, committed, and intelligent Catholic.

But do you support legitimate reform of the Church, and are you willing to submit to the directives of the Second Vatican Council? Will you cooperate responsibly with others who are not part of the Traditional community?

Somehow I managed to be 60% "Radical Catholic" and 55% "Traditional Catholic." Works for me though. I've always thought that the best way to be traditional is to be radical and vice versa.

Dear Timothy,

I wouldn't put much stock in the quiz...these were my scores:

Traditional Catholic 62%
Evangelical Catholic 50%
Liberal Catholic 43%
New Catholic 38%
Neo-Conservative Catholic 38%
Radical Catholic 33%
Lukewarm Catholic 7%

You probably know I am a confirmed Messianic Gentile Episcoprebymethodibapticostal and if I scored this similarly to you, then either the test has little validity or you must be as confused as me.

It also gave me verbatim, the same report and I'm not Roman Catholic at all and really don't know that much about them!

But, keep up the good work!

An excellent point! I think the quiz is flawed. But there is yet to be a quiz to tell us how Episcopresbymethodibapticostal we are, so we'll have to make-shift in the meantime.
