Rants are silly, because the vast majority of the audience are Discordians anyway.  The people who should be seeing them are the semi-Cabbages, the slightly pink (picked up from being surrounded by others of a darker pink hue), the people who have a vague feeling that something isnt quite right, but they cant put their finger on it.

We can protest and argue and sermonise to our hearts content to each other, but we've already recognized the problems and want to solve them.  Its the others out there, that need convincing.

I, the Apostate Cain, say unto you go forth!  Preach to the masses!  While many of these rants give a different and highly interesting view of Discordianism etc...they dont do much good just taking up bandwidth on a website so far off the beaten track it should have stumbled onto another by now.  They need to be out there, in the world, in places where people can be convinced, swayed, have discussions over them.  Otherwise we might as well be yelling into the wind.  Its kinda sad, but I dont want Discordianism to end up as something discussed among a small, obscure elite, like certain political doctrines.  But thats the way it seems to be going.

Just gotta say, isn't that already in effect in the form of OM?  Or is that more just playing with people.  Cause, I don't know, preaching is pretty boring especially to the pinks who're questioning their shit already.  Who wants to get preached at, really?

fucking sub-genii elitist, i hate the term pink, do i give a flying fuck, do i have any sympathy for your nazi fetishizing brutality posing as a religion, sure but I really don't think that sucking on the tit of capitalism and preaching a dead religion is going to alter the status quo so much as perpetuate the sense of naseua one feels at living.

That's the whole idea, Slappy.  Pinks are there to be punished.

Welcome to the rabbit hole, kid.

Well, yeah.  But I'm thinking if I can get hooks for my hands and my own Church I can be villified by all the papers for my raidcal preaching and get exported to a warmer country.

Give me a minute I want to properly visualize that.....



Hmm, yeah take off the tip of the spire, give it a good skin tone paint job and by george!

It does look like an excited mammary.  I knew politicians were boobs but I had completely overlooked the visual clue our forefathers left us.  I guess you really do learn something every day.

I'm off to contemplate other washington monuments' freudian significance....

Don't forget the Washington Memorial!

One by one, we break the sheep from their Iron Bar Prisons and expand their imaginations, make them think for themselves. In turn, they break more from their prisons. Eventually, critical mass is reached. Our key word: Resolve. Evangelize with compassion and determination. And realize that there will be few in the beginning. We are hand picking our successors. They are the future of Discordianism. Let us guide our future with intelligence.
