Here is a chart that shows how different religions are. Again itís odd how Orthodoxy is not mentioned in the US.
Interesting how Judaism is in the heart of Protestantism but not for Catholicism or the other form of Christianitry. It shows that different forms of Christianity are way off to the point they are different religions.

You can press the links on the side to see how other things stand up. Kind of an odd site which I do not fully get. http://www.moral-politics.com/xpolitics.aspx?menu=Political_Maps&ac tion=Draw&choice=PoliticalMaps.Religions


A different chart shows what the leaders think which the order of what is what in the chart is different so donít compare it to the other structure.

I would guess that being at the center more is better to not be an extremist. The Dalai Lama and Gandhi are closest to anarchism/communism lol
I was marked very close to the center on both.

Orthodoxy=best kept secret in the US. 2nd largest Christian communion in the world

I was near the center too, slightly to the left.
I don't know where you are seeing Gandhi on the chart.

The problem with the major political and religious figures on the list is that they didn't come and take these tests.. their placement and percent matching for these people is based on the opinions of the people who made the tests on how they think those various political leaders etc would score, based on their opinion of what/how those people think.
