    ho·li·er-than-thou. adj. Exhibiting an attitude of superior virtue; self-righteously pious.

    Self-righteousness (also called sanctimoniousness, sententiousness, a holier-than-thou attitude[1]) is a feeling of (usually) smug moral superiority[2] derived from a sense that one's beliefs, actions, or affiliations are of greater virtue than those of the average person.

    Take the test. Good luck.


    The Holy Test - Are You Holier Than Thou?


    Your score is 42.

    Congratulations, you have passed the Hypocrite Test! You are officially Unholier Than Thou. The world is a happier place with you in it.

    Your score is 58.

    You are remarkably average, and therefore are neither Holy nor Unholy compared to other humans. Play it cool, and you may be able to sneak through the gates unnoticed.

    I just HAD a drink!

    sanc·ti·mo·ni·ous (sngkt-mn-s)
    adj.

    Feigning piety or righteousness: "a solemn, unsmiling, sanctimonious old iceberg that looked like he was waiting for a vacancy in the Trinity" (Mark Twain).
