the christian science monitor has a little quiz up: Sunni and Shiite Islam: Do you know the difference?

i sorta do. i got 3 wrong out of 19 — 84%. eh. =/

the three questions i didn’t know the answers to were:

12. The title Sayyid is used by members of which sect?
13. The name for which sect comes from the Arabic word for follower?
15. Which sect considers members of the other to be apostates?

you try! no cheating! (~_^)

(note: comments do not require an email. sunni or shia?)
