This quiz is awful. I think even the European continent could get at least 10 of these...

You seriously overestimated how much baseball knowledge there is in the European continent :disshame:
The only faces I could identify was Barry Bonds then I just guessed all the others when I recognised the name either Babe Ruth, Joe Di Magio or Sammy Sossa :huh:

I'm done with that whole crowd. We went to church pretty much every Sunday when I was a kid. We were members of a fairly progressive Lutheran church and looking back I think my parents took us out of a feeling of obligation more than anything else. I identified as Christian for most of my life and when push comes to shove - I still probably do - but I just cannot stomach pretty much any organized Christian church. The self righteousness, the hypocrisy, the intolerance, the sexism and racism and homophobia and xenophobia. Whenever I think of church these days - the first image that pops into my head are the super white Midwestern Hobby Lobby shopping crowd. I know they're only one type of Christian - but it says a lot that I know pretty much associate them with most Christians...

I'm an atheist but I'm culturally Christian, more or less, given my social environment. If you want religion to inform your moral code, fine; keep it out of matters of science and don't force your shit on anyone else. I was raised, inasmuch as it was my mother's church so I did a year of Sunday school there, in the United Church of Canada, which is a melding of Presbyterian and Methodists churches (they joined up because of the sparse populations in Canada in the early days). It's super laid back. Rarely is sin and hell mention. Instead it's about love and fellowship and Jesus as inspiration to helping others. I've joked that it's the religious arm of the social democrats here. If I felt the need to join a church, I'd definitely go back to the UCC.

That sounds like the church I grew up in. I was (and technically still am) a member of the ELCA. They're pretty progressive on most social issues. Heck, they allow women to be ordained.
