The results from Quizfarm.com:
|You scored as Neo-Conservative Catholic. You see that the government of the United States was originally founded on recognizably Catholic natural law principles and reason in the tradition of Saint Thomas Aquinas, and the freedom of religion acknowledged in the Constitution has allowed Catholicism to flourish in this largely Protestant country. You recognize that the American system of government, even with its faults, is the most moral social order developed in history. You are committed to being a Catholic active in society.Â
Like the Liberal Catholic, your views might be too determined by American culture, and you may uncritically accept many theories that may be harmful to yourself and society; instead you may need rediscover traditional Catholic teaching. You should emphasize the love of your neighbor, especially love for the poor, in your everyday business dealings.
Hmmm, seems pretty accurate. I’ve even mentioned in conversations with others how the faith of American Christians in general is shaped by American culture. I don’t see that as all bad as this is the greatest nation on God’s green earth. Yet it is something to be aware of.
I do disagree that I uncritically accept theories that are harmful to myself. I suspect they are talking about thing like “tax cuts for the rich”. In Colorado, we are voting on referrenda C & D in November. The referrenda are state tax hikes. My voting against it (which some would say is against my immediate self-interest) doesn’t mean I did so uncritically.
