We get a lot of enquiries from customers looking for trivia questions on religion which isn’t surprising as even today in the secular West, religious traditions remain important. This week the world celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of Martin Luther King’s great “I have a dream” speech which outlined his vision of a rainbow nation where his four children “would be judged not by the color of their skin but the content of their character”. If you wanted a good question for a religious quiz, you could ask in which church was Dr Luther King a pastor? The answer is the American Baptist Church whose members were at the forefront of the civil rights movement.
British history provides a good hunting ground for anybody in the market for religious trivia questions, with Henry VIII’s divorce from Rome and Catherine of Aragon a particularly rich seam. So anybody putting together a decent quiz on religious matters could include one or two posers on this turbulent period. For example, which religious institutions that housed holy men were destroyed by Henry after he turned his back on the Catholic Church? The monasteries. And approximately how many were dissolved? At least 625.
More recently, a ‘new Labour’ English Prime Minister followed Henry’s religious switch, but in the other direction. Anyone hoping to buy religion questions for their online or pub quiz should consider asking his name. The answer’s Tony Blair, who switched from Church of England to Catholic in 2007, joining wife Cherie in her place of worship. But which of his controversial sisters in law converted to to Shia Islam after visiting a shrine to Fatima in 2010? It was Lauren Booth.
Religious titles are important and produce teasing religious quiz questions. Who is known respectfully as the “father of the Jews”? Abraham. And which British prince, not yet in charge, wants to alter his future Church of England job title “defender of the faith” to “defender of the faiths” with a nod to multi-culturalism? Why, Prince Charles.
Anybody buying religious quiz questions wants to include a few religious trivia queries. A good example would be which religion, that’s also been described as a cult, unites film stars Tom Cruise, John Travolta and the best barmaid in Cheers, Kirstie Alley. It’s Scientology and they’re all members. And for a final religious quiz teaser, which science fiction author dreamed up Scientology using self-help techniques and created his first church in New Jersey in 1953? It was L Ron Hubbard and the L stands for Lafayette.
