Jo Frank         - Reform Judaism (100%)
Mozard          - Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (100%)
Peter Taylor  - Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (100%)

So far, no one has claimed the prize...

I guess it all comes down to Russell and Prometheus -- which one is a liberal Quaker at heart?

Kathy, my wife, just did the survey and she is a 100% Liberal Quaker.

Since Aaron said "first person" we will see if he holds to his word (the smiley face may let him off).

Not really the money technically would go to Kathy and I never see any money after it enters her purse.

In all seriousness these are Kathy's (my wife's) full results:
1. Liberal Quakers (100%)
2. Unitarian Universalism (97%)
3. Neo-Pagan (93%)
4. New Age (85%)
5. Mahayana Buddhism (83%)
6. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (79%)
7. Reform Judaism (79%)
8. Theravada Buddhism (74%)
9. Taoism (70%)
10. Orthodox Quaker (70%)
11. New Thought (68%)
12. Baha'i Faith (67%)
13. Jainism (65%)
14. Scientology (63%)
15. Secular Humanism (61%)
16. Hinduism (57%)
17. Sikhism (57%)
18. Orthodox Judaism (51%)
19. Christian Science (Church of Christ, Scientist) (47%)
20. Islam (46%)
21. Seventh Day Adventist (39%)
22. Nontheist (35%)
23. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (33%)
24. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (33%)
25. Eastern Orthodox (30%)
26. Roman Catholic (30%)
27. Jehovah's Witness (23%)

If you compare them to mine above they are a nice match - another reason we work so well together.

Aaron if you do feel the need to make good on the $10, Kathy says just throw it on the charity plate
