Straight to Hell

Yep, apparently I’m going straight to Hell…

My friend Simon, who teaches religion, put me onto this little survey to see where your religious affiliations lie. It appears that I’m not a very good catholic.

You scored as Emergent/Postmodern. You are Emergent/Postmodern in your theology. You feel alienated from older forms of church, you don’t think they connect to modern culture very well. No one knows the whole truth about God, and we have much to learn from each other, and so learning takes place in dialogue. Evangelism should take place in relationships rather than through crusades and altar-calls. People are interested in spirituality and want to ask questions, so the church should help them to do this.

I’m not sure who the dude in the photo is… any ideas? I’m also not sure what all those percentages are meant to represent, but I’m sure glad that I’m described as 89% Postmodern and 0% Fundamentalist.

I’ve never really understood all the fuss about organised religion. If being told what to think and how to act is something that floats your boat, then go for it. But it’s really not my thing… I think I can be just as spiritual, just as good a person, just as able to treat others fairly and equally, without the stifling organisation that most religions seem to entail. Just do unto others…

What I really resent is all the wars and strife that religion has caused over the ages. I especially resent all the indigenous cultures that have been ruined by well-meaning missionaries spreading the word of a God that was irrelevant and unnecessary to those cultures. And finally, I have absolutely no time for much of the fundamentalist, indoctrinated views that are sometimes espoused in the name of organised religion.

In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.
