With all the news discussion on different policies, tax plans and social issues, it can be difficult to decide which candidate for president best matches your own views.

An online quiz on ISideWith.com is trying to help voters decide. The quiz asked voters to select their stances on foreign and domestic issues and the results are then compared with the policy positions of the candidates in order to show quiz takers which candidate has the most similar views.

The quiz only takes a couple of minutes to complete.

A look at the quiz results for Massachusettsshows that 61 percent of the Commonwealth voters who took it side most closely with President Barack Obama. Fifty-one percent side most closely with Green Party candidate Jill Stein, 45 percent are most closely aligned with Libertarian Gary Johnson and only 29 percent match most closely with GOP Candidate Mitt Romney.

Click here to take the quiz and find out with which candidate your views most closely align. Let us know the results in the comments section below.

Gary Johnson by a longshot, then Rocky Anderson and Jill Stein are both >70% matches.

I appear to agree with Barry and Mitt less than 40% of the time or something.

You can argue that Christianity is cult, but until we wear strange undergarments and can practice polygamy, you'd be going way out on a limb.

Catholics aren't allowed to masturbate, their priests must abstain from sex (their leaders don't punish them when they do it with little boys though), and they eat the flesh of their savior. that's reasonable.

pretty sure that's a mortal sin, dude. confess or face your fate in the fiery furnace

so, looks like just 'cause someone belongs to a religion, he might not always adhere to its tenets?

Not sure If that's the case with Romney. Even so, it wouldn't be an issue I'd factor into my voting decision unless I saw specific examples of how someone's faith impacted his political decisions.

"Therefore, people who are committing this sin need to cease the evil immediately and, when prepared, make a good confession. If people are really struggling in this area, then they are not near the spiritual level where they need to be. God’s grace is there for them; but they need to pray more, pray better, avoid the occasions of sin and exercise their wills. They need to put out more effort spiritually and then it shouldn’t be a problem."

I'll just not vote for him because he stands for everything I don't. Plus, he really bought into the Joseph Smith story. Gold plates and all.

Right, because there's nothing remotely ridiculous about immaculate conceptions, the whole father son and holy ghost being the same person, zombie Jesus, etc... I won't even get into the history of covering up the raping of children by their leaders, including the Pope, who are supposedly the spokesmen for God himself. Is God really ok with that type of shit?

My dad and grandpa are Freemasons, and I looked into becoming one, but it just wasn't the right time for me.

Any man can be a Freemason as long as he believes in a higher [power, and has not been convicted of a felony in his lifetime. It's not something to be suspicious of.

It is aome of the most grossly misunderstood stuff out there. All that stuff is based on metaphor and over time has become misconstrued, reinterpreted, and completely changed from the original teachings and intentions. Anyone who cares to really learn about the roots of Christianity as a faith will easily find the truth. When I read the statements above from Joker and CC,. I can immediately tell you both really don't know what is what.

But this isn't a thread about any of that, so I digress.

Dude, the Catholic Church TEACHES this as TRUTH. They believe in transubstantiation, immaculate conception, the trinity, etc....You clearly don't know the teaching of the church. I completely agree that the Bible has been bastardized, my point is the teachings above are the official teachings of the Church. period. Look up the Catechism.

A commentator, quoting Pope Paul VI to the effect that the Catholic Church has made a conscious attempt to adopt "a more humble and fraternal attitude ... that of a search for the truth",[18] claims that CCC displays a shift away from presenting dogma as fact and toward presenting the Catholic faith itself as a search for truth. Referring also to the statement in the Apostolic Constitution Fidei Depositum that "the contents are often presented in a new way in order to respond to the questions of our age," he claims that the "new catechesis…attempts to produce existential reactions rather than intellectual conviction."[18]

we can quote Popes all day:

the same Pope you site above :In order to make the indissoluble bond that exists between faith and devotion perfectly clear, the Fathers of the Council decided, in the course of reaffirming the doctrine that the Church has always held and taught and that was solemnly defined by the Council of Trent, to offer the following compendium of truths. He goes on to express the "truth" of transubstantiation in an official encyclical http://www.vatican.v...terium_en.html:

and just found this gem from the same Pope. The devil is real: "It is a departure from the picture provided by biblical and Church teaching to refuse to acknowledge the devil's existence" http://www.catholic....il#.UG22SFEsGNg

so they are presenting their contents in a "new way." Their theology (on things such as transubstantiation, the Trinity, existence of a devil, original sin, etc.) is still being taught as truth. This is what you learn in CCD and in church.

My point - official teaching of Catholicism is no less bizarre or incredulous than Mormonism, when you compare the two

I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended into hell; on the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen. ?


Fine with me if someone wants to believe all of this, but I'm not personally going to plug into a faith which requires it.

Love one another works for me. :)
