Mission Holiness Index

The Mission Holiness Index (MHI) is a satirical gauge of a website's holiness, based on the number of times Jesus Christ, God, and Church are mentioned. 


It began on April 15, 2008 when the MethoBlogs were talking about the mission statement at Claremont School of Theology.  The new mission statement did not have any mention of Jesus Christ, God, or the United Methodist Church in it.

In response, HX.net created the MHI and applied it to the 13 United Methodist Seminaries, giving positive points for the "holy words," and negative points for academic terms that replaced usage of those "holy words."

Reported Uses

In this place, future usage of the MHI to satirize arbitrary evaluations of statements by how many buzz words are in them will be posted.
