  1. Unless things are different in Ireland, The Seventh Day Church Of Tupperware ,who believe Christ was able to emerge from the tomb on the third day as fresh as he’d been upon the first due to the divine air tight sealing properties of…Ok I’m taking the piss, I mean the 7th Day Adventists (people i have some respect and fondness for btw, I have some in the family and they offered me a place a their seminary even though I wasn’t one) don’t go door knocking much-if at all these days. That’s more your Mormon’s and Joho’s gig.

  2. Or a Pastafarian (Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster), you’d just have to swap your wooly hat for a colander and go “may you be touched by his noodly appendage” to people

    Sorted!

    • Er…. They might stop serving me coffee/pints in the village if I started that.  I can do without religion, but coffee and pints [and baccy] are essential to life and/or death.

      • and anyways a colander is crap headware for Ireland and will only rust. Although they do ‘pasta colanders’ in colourful plastic these days …but they would be a bugger to stop blowing off….and ‘No More Nails’ really is a bitch to get out of your hair.

    Grandad,
     
    We can, on occasion, find ourselves getting bored and unable to think of anything to do on rainy Sunday afternoons; and what’s the best all these religions can promise us? Eternal life. Think about that.
     

    • The eternal life offer doesn’t work for me.

      But eternal youth, now that’s a different matter – a thing of beauty and a boy forever.

    • A common misconception, at least in regards to Christianity! The promise isn’t just of Eternal Life but- wait there’s MORE-Eternal Life in a PERFECT body. Let me just break that down for you; a perfect body-where everything works as it should….you feelin’ me bro?

    • Ah here now!  There are limits to my spiritual explorations.  If I had to delve into films for inspiration I would probably go for “2001 – A Space Odyssey”.

  4. Thought you were a member of the Jedi High Council?
    Not a religion per se but hell when the force is with you and all that who needs religion.

    • BTW Dio, I penned a mighty (and mighty long winded) riposte to your recent Brexϟϟhiteyness (Juncker’s little stunt the other day) but when I tried to comment on your site Wortpreϟϟ wouldn’t allow it. So you and your readers missed out. Shame.

    • That Paratheo-Anametamystikhood Of Eris Esoteric sounds cool?  I could subscribe to that but I doubt I would ever remember its name.  And it’s a it too long for census forms.  Pity.

  5. Dunno about a religion, but there is an order of chivalry based around Guinness and it’s enthusiastic intake.  The Knights of the Black Pint regard drinking (Guinness and whisky) and smoking to be a grave obligation, to be well practiced.  There are several Officers, myself being the current Barking Mangler Trenchant.  The posts of Sheep Squeezer Odd Pursuivant and Flange Norkler Bend Sinister are currently unoccupied for some reason…

  6. I’ve been member of the Church of the Thwacked Individual for a long time now. There’s no address or churches, no services, no rules, no book, in fact, I don’t even know what “thwacked” means.

    Okay, I made that up but my father was a Methodist minister who served in the South Pacific during WWII and didn’t believe in god. My religious instruction consisted of, “Come to the services if you want but it’s okay if you don’t. Other than that, you’ll just have to make up your own minds about religions.”

    Like you, I chose not to complicate my life with one.
