I saw someone on Christian Forums with the user name "ChaosChristian". I never got around to ask him if he is a Discordian, but I wouldn't be surprised.
I still don't understand how that works.Probably similar to UU. Believing that Jesus was a super cool hippie with some great ideas, but he wasn't really the Son of God.
I'll think for myself, as long as it jives wif DA BIBLE.
That's not a specific UU belief.. they don't have specific doctrines.
Correct. The closest UU gets to ANYTHING in the way of doctrines is this:
There are seven principles which Unitarian Universalist congregations affirm and promote:
* The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
* Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
* Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
* A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
* The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
* The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
* Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
That's it. UU says nothing about God (or god, or goddess, or gods AND goddesses, etc.) either for or against. It's up to everyone to think about it for themselves and choose what they feel is correct.
That's how I ended up a Discordian - I looked around, checked out all the literature (the Baghavad Gita is a PITA to get through - keeping all the gods and goddesses sorted out is tough), and went with what felt right to me. Which falls nicely under the fourth point above. Hell, part of the UU religious ed program (for the kids!) is spending a year visiting different churches. I went to a buddhist temple, a mosque, a jewish temple, an RCC church (2 1/2 hrs of pure boredom), a southern baptists church (2 1/2 hours of a GREAT fucking time, music and all), various protestant and lutheran churches, and we'd take the week before we visited to discuss what beliefs the church/temple/mosque had for doctrine.
