oh thanks

my politics are as follows:
30% socially permissive (social conservative), 63% economically permissive (economic conservative), ergo I am a Republican (but on the map I am close to being a centrist in that Repulican-dominated quadrant).

Apparently as far as famous people I am in league with Ronald Reagan, and I am a solid red state supporter.

I did notice I am pretty close to Pope JP2's right hand on the famous people map, but I am right over Reagan's heart...weird.

So much for the credibility of Wesley Blog readers who accuse me of being in bed with the Republican Party. But in all honesty, this test did seem a little liberally biased in its questions. Quite often I found myself erring on the side of caution in the case of specific scenarios. And of course, I just worked my way through the newer edition of Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger by Ron Sider, so that probably affected my views. :)

Anyway, I believe in free market economies and loathe state-run economies, but my thoughts on how best to get the poorest people capital to participate in the wonderful free-market are evolving.

I am so socialist. Right on Phransus. Your namesake would be pissed if you were anything else... or at least as pissed as a pacifist monk can be....

How am I like Vader?

Jonathon,

I took the test, and all I can say is that you came out significantly to my left. Interesting.

Any test can be kind of misleading. On one test I scored high on both the Calvinist AND Wesleyan scale, although slightly higher on the Wesleyan scale. Perhaps it's because Wesley and Calvin didn't disagree on everything, but that we often highlight those matters they differed on.

Gavin is totalitarian?

St.Phransus said...

joel,
go figure. i'm not surprised where i fit into the scheme. like i've said before, i definitely identify with radical politics of the left but i don't like the idea of being boxed in by any particular ideology (except for what i consider the politics of jesus).

dude, anyone who knows gavin, knows that he is one CONTROL FREAK!!! :) That guy has issues.

Social Liberal

and an...

Economic Liberal
(31% permissive)

You are best described as a:

Democrat


You exhibit a very well-developed sense of Right and Wrong and believe in economic fairness.

I just missed being labled "centrist" by a hair.

And I cannot remember tha last time I voted for a Democrat.
