What Kind of Christian Are You?

I just took this quiz "What Kind of Christian Are You?" on Beliefnet.com. Can't say I was surprised by the results...

You scored 355, on a scale of 0 to 400.

Here's how to interpret your score:
0 - 59 You are a Jesse Ventura Christian (a.k.a. a "Secularist" or non-Christian).
60 - 149 You are a Bishop Spong Christian (a.k.a. "Biblical Revisionist").
150 - 249 You are a Hillary Rodham Clinton Christian (a.k.a. "Left-Leaning Traditionalist").
250 - 329 You are a George Bush Sr. Christian (a.k.a. "Right-Leaning Traditionalist").
330 - 400 You are a Jerry Falwell Christian (a.k.a "Historicist").

Jerry Falwell Christian
(a.k.a. "Historicist" or "Literalist")
You view the Bible as historically accurate and divinely inspired. You go to church every Sunday, with the Good Book in a Bible cover, and Wednesday night for Bible study. You've read at least one of the books in the apocalyptic "Left Behind" series, prefer your iced tea very sweet, and suspect Bill Clinton has murdered somebody somewhere in Arkansas. You're furious that people actually believe "The Da Vinci Code" and have bought a book debunking the novel. You wept uncontrollably all three times you went to see "The Passion of the Christ" and have ordered the DVD in bulk to give copies to friends. You may watch Eternal Word Television Network, and you adore Dr. Laura, Chuck Colson, James Dobson, and Rush Limbaugh. You enjoy some episodes of "Joan of Arcadia" but think it's not reverent enough--"Touched by an Angel" was better. If you're Catholic, you go to Latin Mass and weekly confession, though you don't have much to confess. You think homosexuals are sinful but try periodically to love them. You think the surrounding culture is so polluted that you shop at Christian bookstores, listen only to Christian radio and send your kids to Christian or parochial schools--or homeschool them. You give generously to your church and Christian charities. The Bible provides you not only a direct connection to God but a roadmap for how to lead your life.

While, I'm not a fan of the 'Left Behind" series and have never seen an episode of Joan of Arcardia, the rest is almost dead-on (in a tongue-in- cheek way).

So take the quiz and let me know what kind of Christian you are.
