My scores were almost equal between EO, Lutheran Missouri Synod and RCC. What surprised me is that RC was in third place with the Lutherans slightly ahead in #2. (I haven't figured out the % figurse). Out of curiosity, I looked up the MS and it turns out they are theologically conservative (sole scriptura through the lens of the Book of Concord), with closed communion cup except for those who adhere to their theology, anti-ecumenist outlook etc... they aren't even in communion with many of the other Lutheran churches in America. They suspended a pastor for praying with heretics at an ecumenical 9/11 prayer service in which +Demetrios offered a blessing.

EO-->RC-->LCMS-->ELCA...the rest, marginal.

I'm w/EVOO, though...how in the world did Mormonism come up before Episcopalian?!

Because Mormons would probably answer similairly to the question about women clergy and sources of authority to EO's, Episcopalians wouldn't.

Many will be shocked that the bar was almost equal to my #1
 
Does this mean that you are a closet Roman Catholic?

Can we can some sort of Severian revivification started for this thread, pronto? Seems such an awful shame to let these sugary treats wither in obscurity. . .

My diagnosis:
1. Eastern Orthodox Church (100%)  [Home, sweet home]
2. Roman Catholic Church (90%)  [Very close, as it was in real life. Where I would've ended up if Orthodoxy hadn't been an option; seriously, much respect to the RCs]
3. Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (86%)  [I'd rather not "put Jimmy in the oven"]
4. Evangelical Lutheran Church (76%)  [Meeh]
5. Episcopal/Anglican Church (66%)   [Perhaps an Anglo-Catholic church]
6. Mormonism (60%)   [The youtube propaganda must be working]
7. Methodist/Wesleyan Church (56%)   [My childhood church! I adore John Wesley. If I were to go back to Protestantism, it would likely be to a church within the Wesleyan tradition]
8. Church of Christ (56%)   [No. No. No.]
9. International Church of Christ (56%)   [The whole world over: no, no, no]
10. United Pentecostal Church (56%)   [I just can't stomach the charismatic movement]
11. Mennonite Brethren(46%)   [Integrity written all over it]
12. Free Will Baptist (46%)   [I'll choose to pass this one over]
13. Assemblies of God (46%)  
14. Presbyterian Church in America/Orthodox Presbyterian Church (40%)
15. Reformed Churches (40%)   [Not elected]
16. Orthodox Quakerism (36%)   [The Quakers have always fascinated me]
17. Seventh-Day Adventist (36%)  
18. Southern Baptist (36%)   [Huh. I'm surprised I didn't score higher with these guys]
19. Presbyterian Church USA (30%)  
20. Reformed Baptist (30%)  
21. Jehovah's Witness (20%)   [There are just too many interesting cults to settle for the position of glorified door-to-door salesman]
22. Liberal Quakerism (10%)
23. Unitarian Universalism (4%)
24. Unity Church (0%)  

Good test; fun times. It's also nice to find a thread where folks aren't bashing their former faiths in the extreme. I get rather irked when I see converts constantly portraying Protestantism as completely anemic. There are some stunning expressions of faith to be found in these traditions; not nearly as much so as in Orthodoxy, granted, but still oases in their own right. I love and am thankful for my Protestant past, but I look forward to a future, God willing, in the Church.

Also: does anyone know along what lines the various Hussite churches would fall in such a quiz?

Well, that was a fun and very revealing quiz! :D  I thought Orthodox would come out on top, though I wasn't expecting a 100% match!  I'm even more surprised that Roman Catholic rated at 100% as I answered negative to one question based on a key RC doctrine.  The denom I'm currently affiliated with only rated in the fifties. :-\

interesting quiz.
:)

these were my top 6:
Orthodox Church (100%)
Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (92%) 
Evangelical Lutheran Church (86%) 
Roman Catholic Church (86%) 
Episcopal/Anglican Church (72%) 
Methodist/Wesleyan Church (69%) 

i have edited the top one, as they didn't distinguish between different orthodox churches, so nor will i.
i included methodist as this was my 1st church as a small child. i think i would have scored higher if it had been a british quiz coz the brits got john wesley who was arminian (not too far from the orthodox doctrine) and the americans got whitfield (sorry, forgot his 1st name) who was a calvinist.

i hope no one actually uses it to decide which church to go too!
that would be very nerdy to trust the computer...
;)

Agreed,
although I have actually heard of people inquiring into Orthodoxy because of quizzes like this.

1. Eastern Orthodox (100%)
2. Lutheran Church- Missouri Synod (100%)
3. Evangelical Lutheran Church (93%)
4. Roman Catholic (85%)
5. Church of Christ (77%)

I'll retake it when I'm at a laptop. I just did it on my iPad so I couldn't adjust the bars on importance. I'm curious to see how that affects my results.

I'm actually really surprised that Roman Catholic was only 5th. I think it might have been because of the priority sliders.

yeah, maybe the site admin is from LCMS and wants to make the point that that church is 'orthodox'.

Eastern Orthodox 100%

Roman Catholic 100%  So how can I be 100% Roman Catholic if I did not agree that authority is vested in one  person or a group of people?

In this quiz, I'm sure if you have an Orthodox majority you will have a Catholic majority too.

They need to add a couple of more questions to distinguish better between EO and RC.
For example:
1. Do you agree that the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father and from the Son?
2. Do you believe in Purgatory?
3. Do you agree with playing instrumental music, such as organ music, during Church services?

My top 5 results:

1. Eastern Orthodox Church - 100%
2. LCMS - 97%
3. RCC - 97%
4. ELC - 92% (Not really seeing how I agree 92% with such a liberal denomination)
5. Episcopal - 83% (ditto)

If they had had a "Do you hate Martin Luther?" question, I'm sure my Lutheran score would have been lower.
