Principled Pragmatism wasn't an option....

You scored 50 Objectivism, 47 Naturalism, and 73 Cognitivism!
You believe in moral propositions, but not moral facts or reduction of moral talk. You may be a relativist. Don't be scared by the fact that "relativist" is usually an accusation, spoken with a sneer - just because it's not in vogue doesn't mean it's wrong, which you know doubt know.
"The term ‘moral relativism’ is understood in a variety of ways. Most often it is associated with an empirical thesis that there are deep and widespread moral disagreements and a metaethical thesis that the truth or justification of moral judgments is not absolute, but relative to some group of persons. Sometimes ‘moral relativism’ is connected with a normative position about how we ought to think about or act towards those with whom we morally disagree, most commonly that we should tolerate them."

I'm a little surprised by the overall result, but the components are more or less all right (which is remarkable, considering that it's only a 15-question quiz).
