How UU are you?

There are many religious beliefs in this world. Where do yours fall on the scale of tolerance and open-mindedness? Do you think that only your faith has gotten it right, or do you have the "your guess is as good as mine" attitude?

In this quiz, you'll be asked a series of questions which will assess your level of open-mindedness and religious acceptance. The questions, and many of their answers, are drawn from the beliefs of the majority of UUs, and from the seven UU principles.

5. What is your take on "Original Sin", the concept that because of Adam and Eve's sin in the Garden of Eden, all humans are inherently sinful. From the moment of birth, we are impure and marred, and we must worship God and pray for his mercy.

It is a sin--it is wrong, and an abomination
Whatever you do in private is your business, but don't make a fuss about it in public

Everyone's idea are equally right and valuable--all that matters is whether they give meaning and comfort to that person
