An Anti-Catholic?

As someone who was raised Catholic, I was a bit surprised by my results for this Spiritual Belief System Selector Quiz:  The top results are pretty good, but Catholicism is at the very bottom of the list?  Below Islam, Scientology, and Christian Scientists??

I suppose part of the problem is that they don’t have many questions on acceptance of science (e.g., evolution), tolerance for dogma produced by science fiction writers, and severity of restrictions on women, punishment for “blasphemy,” how seriously we should take religious texts, and so on.

Although you’d still think that e.g., a rejection of creationism (which was a question) would bump up Catholicism a bit. I think the test could be improved.  But still, I suppose that the purpose of the test is to measure compatibility, not incompatibility, and I do have the greatest sympathy with the top 5 results.
