I got a 13. Didn't know about Joseph Smith and missed the one on when teachers can read the bible. I wonder what the average score is?

I only got an 11. I'll have to take Dorothy's threads more seriously.

14. I missed the Jewish Sabbath. I should have known it, too, because B&H Photo closes at 4PM Fridays.

15 out of 15. Kind of surprised myself. No trick questions, that helped

13/15. Blew the Sabbath and the school prayer question.

But the prayer question must be wrong. Teachers are permitted to lead prayers in parochial schools!

And the question about Joseph Smith is, strictly speaking, unanswerable because "Loony Bird" wasn't one of the choices.

12. Wrong answer to the last question, and missed 6 and 8. I gotta read the bible.

Got them all right, but I read those links posted earlier or I would have missed 3.

15/15. Makes me feel good that all the time and money I spent on Seminary wasn't wasted.
