In all honesty, you might be able to break it down this way:

Jesus was a rebellious upstart who turned Judaism on its head.  Good start.

He said, "you are all gods" ----> Cf: "you are all pope".

He spoke in a lot of contradictions.

From there, you can get into the Gnostic stuff.  You can usually find some weird shit there that will back up a Discordian mindset.  Check out the Gospel of Judas.  It claims that YHVH is actually a demented bloodthirsty demon, which pretty much lets you off the hook as far as the whole "Big Daddy" worship goes.

Pretty much most religions can be combined with Discordianism, if you take a non-institutionalized view.

Sufism + Discordianism, for example, also works.

Welcome, btw

On the Christianity I grew up with, Discordianism wouldn't work at all.  That "think for yourself, Schmuck!" schtick comes to a full and complete stop.

Gnosticism is not mainstream Xty.  Quite the opposite.  The furthering of arcane knowledge is a total antithesis to what Xty espouses to be.

Well...gnostic Christians ARE somewhat thin on the ground.  Your point is well-taken and it's often one used to well...support the notion you can be Xtian and ____________.  Like Christopagan, for instance.

ETA:  the use of calling God "Jehovah" in the OP is also interesting.  It's more of an Old Testament referent.

True.

I was just Starbuck-ing my way through, seeing if I could align Xtianity & Eris.

The Judeo-Christian God is not called Jehovah.  That is a misinterpretation of YHWH that goes back to the Crusades.

Years ago when I was in high school, a Jehovah's Witness interrupted my summer vacation to ask me why I thought no one called God by his name. I said I didn't know.  Later I thought about it and realized that no one ever says shit like "You Jehovah damned motherfucker".

To speak his foul name is to bring his attention to yourself, and that is not a wise idea.

That's a good point...and in point of fact, Christians often use Jehovah without any notion of and in complete ignorance of said fact...
