Here's a little sampler of the beauty that is Candlepin bowling:

People of the United States! We are Unitarian Jihad! We can strike without warning. Pockets of reasonableness and harmony will appear as if from nowhere! Nice people will run the government again! There will be coffee and cookies in the Gandhi Room after the revolution.

Arguing with a Unitarian Universalist is like mud wrestling a pig. Pretty soon you realize the pig likes it.

It's weird seeing it from that angle.  Makes you realize just how far apart the pins really are.

I guess we could tell them it was all a big joke. But I mean we can cause so much hysteria still. Why stop at 50 years. Let us try for making us an official religion so I can get coked to the gills and smoke dope in my den while dressed in army camoflage listening to "Ride of the Valkyries" Goose-stepping all the while for "religious reasons." If other religions can do it. So can we. Make the time honoured rite of getting baked and ranting about Cthulhu and Dagon religious ceremony. We deserve it.
Okay, why not. Didn't want to die alone anyways.

But way should Government recognize Discordians, if Discordians don't recognize Government?

I might say I couldn't understand barumuk at all, but that would be false.  I can understand him fine, I just don't understand how I can understand so much of him.

It's not that I don't understand him, but Nigel and Rat agreed to handle these matters.

Yeah, there was a nice little point wrapped up in that confusingly written little post.

Hi Baramuk!

Although I agree that it is not Discordia's responsibility to recognize government, I would have to say that it is in fact not government's responsibility to recognize Discordia at all... at least in the US, the government's sole responsibility toward religions is to not interfere in their practice, so by completely ignoring Discordia the government is fulfilling all of its responsibility.

I am not sure Discordia can recognize a government, not actually being sentient.

On the other hand, it is probably the responsibilities of Discordians to recognize their governments, as citizens.

Oh. I've heard of him, but I've never seen him.
