ok, here's a slightly contentious poll (inspired by mitt romney!). i've made the results viewable to none*, so i hope you'll vote honestly. (i will not be looking at who voted what, to keep it on a level playing field). for those of you who'd like to share answers, please feel free to share away in the comments!

i realize that this is a christian-centric poll, but i think that since we are a western-oriented community, most of our elected representatives are of the christian persuasion. i don't mean to diminish the importance of differences between orthodox and reform jews, sunnis and shias, theravada and mahayana buddhists, etc, but i also think that more people will have a stronger opinion on christian denominations than those of other religions. no offense intended, although i'm sure some of you will be offended anyway!

*i don't know if people will think it violates the spirit of TQC to keep the results closed. i don't mean to censor anyone, so if you'd like to share, please comment about it, i just didn't want anyone to not vote because they felt uncomfortable
