I didn't know where Perkins fit in, and I made another completely boneheaded error.

Only got an 8 - and I feel stupid. By the way, anybody read "A Quest For Godliness: The Puritan Vision of the Christian Life" by J. I. Packer?

I got 7, and I'm Catholic. But my father is descended from a long line of English Presbyterians.

'I'm from the Dutch franchise'

Then there's the joke about a man who died and went up to Heaven. He was met at the Pearly Gates by St. Peter himself, who took the man by his hand and led him inside. They started walking down hallways in order to reach their destination -- the place where the man would enjoy himself until eternity.

They walked through one hallway, and the man heard singing and clapping and many loud exclamations of "Hallelujah!" He looked inquiringly at St. Peter, who said "The Baptists."

In another hallway, he heard the voices of many people, raised in joyful song, accompanied by a booming organ. St. Peter told him, "The Lutherans."

Finally, they reached a large wooden door. St. Peter put a finger to his lips and whispered, "At this point, you must be deathly quiet. Please take off your shoes and tiptoe noiselessly." The two tiptoed through a silent hallway. After passing through another large wooden door, St. Peter motioned that they could once again talk in normal tones, and they both put their shoes back on.

"What was that?" inquired the man.

"That's the Dutch Reformed", said St. Peter, "they think they're the only ones here!"

Well, I only got 5, but I haven't read any of the Puritains yet. Does this mean that my belief is NOT based on a construct (as WC would have it)?

"Oh, that is HYSTERICAL!!!!!! May I copy and send to the relatives..."

Sure, I heard this long ago and I couldn't remember the exact way it went. (It's the punchline that's key.) I found it on the web, but it had the Catholics in the punchline. I cut and pasted it and changed it. Feel free.

"...(yes, all Dutch; yes, all attended Calvin)."

Well, that I know of, there's two dutch guys on these Calvinist threads and we both did! What's that tell you?

There was a barber in his shop one day when a Roman Catholic priest walked in and got a hair cut. When finished, the priest attempted to pay. The barber refused noting that it was his policy that men of the cloth receive free haircuts.

The next morning the barber awakens and leaves his home. As he opens the door he finds 6 bottles of wine on his door step.

Later, in his shop, a Lutheran minister walks in to get his hair cut. After the haircut the Lutheran minister attempts to pay. The barber again refuses and notes that it is his policy that men of the cloth receive free haircuts.

The next morning the barber awakens and leaves his home. As he opens the door he finds 6 pints of fine German beer on his door step.

Later, in his shop, a Baptist minister walks in to get his hair cut. After the haircut the Baptist minister attempts to pay. The barber again refuses and notes that it is his policy that men of the cloth receive free haircuts.

The next morning the barber awakens and leaves his home. As he opens the door he finds 6 bottles of grape juice on his door step.

Later, in his shop, a Dutch Reformed minister walks in to get his hair cut. After the haircut the Dutch Reformed minister attempts to pay. The barber again refuses and notes that it is his policy that men of the cloth receive free haircuts.

The next morning the barber awakens and leaves his home. As he opens the door, he finds 6 Dutch Reformed ministers on his door step....

I tried to take the test, and the button to score does not work in Opera (doesn't always render Java properly), and that is the only browser I have on this computer. I will have to wait until Monday and take it using my computer at work.

It's a game where we sit around and compare names. It usually doesn't take too long to strike a match. Especially if you went to Calvin.

Hahaha! Rev. Al Van Shaarptoonma! That's almost as bad as some of the real names. Good one!

Rats! I want reparations, too; but grammas and grampas came straight from Holland. Bummer! There must be SOMEONE to take the blame for my score on the Quiz. And, no, we are not going to discuss it. Hehehe!
