Radical . . . That's Me!

You scored as Radical Catholic. You are "Radical" in its Catholic sense -- from the Latin word radix, or root. You are not just a "church person" but you are a disciple of Christ, making a total commitment to the Gospel, to voluntary poverty, and self-sacrifice for others. You give without counting the cost.
You need to be sure that you remain obedient to the Church and your superiors, and do not consider yourself a prophet or become elitist. Try to make good examinations of conscience and to be humble.

I also scored as a radical catholic. Everyone else seems to get liberal catholic or new catholic. Glad to have some radical company!

I think mine came out radical because I am all about what the church is all about. I think the church is big enough to let everyone have a place at the table. If that makes me radical then so be it.

I think I scored as radical because of the questions about following Jesus and serving God. Seeing as I'm pursuing a religious vocation, I came out pretty strongly on those ones.

Here's how I came out ...

You scored as Neo-Conservative Catholic.

You see that the government of the United States was originally founded on recognizably Catholic natural law principles and reason in the tradition of Saint Thomas Aquinas, and the freedom of religion acknowledged in the Constitution has allowed Catholicism to flourish in this largely Protestant country. You recognize that the American system of government, even with its faults, is the most moral social order developed in history. You are committed to being a Catholic active in society. Like the Liberal Catholic, your views might be too determined by American culture, and you may uncritically accept many theories that may be harmful to yourself and society; instead you may need rediscover traditional Catholic teaching. You should emphasize the love of your neighbor, especially love for the poor, in your everyday business dealings.
