Neutral, lean negative.

I know the culture of Hollywood leans liberal so I boycott most movies unless one of the actors has publicly come out as a pot-smoking libertarian.

I don't know enough Southern Baptists to give an opinion.

     Positive. I think most people take such things too seriously.

Well things like Pastafarianism are funny, but after a while it just gets annoying.

Joke Religions?  isn't that redundant?
Logged

I believe the simple truth is that they became somewhat alarmed when they realized that I really meant to write what I believed. There is a peculiar parallel between some of our great Northern "liberals" and some of our outstanding Southern liberals.

Some of the people in both classes share the deep-seated convictions that only their convictions can possibly be the right ones. They both inevitably say the same thing: "We know the Negro and what is best for him."

not a fan.  it's become one of those vents where potentially revolutionary energy gets dissipated, with people thinking they're up to something oppositional and original.  religion died as a central means of social organization a long time ago, continuing to beat it up through spaghetti monsters is a juvenile waste of time, a worst form of cowardice.

Pastafarfianism isn't the only joke religion. There's also SubGenius and Discordianism. In fact, Rastafarfianism itself is a joke religion.

Overwhelmingly positive.

The rest of you guys who bash joke religions are the worst sort of people on this planet.  You are everything that is wrong with this world.  I would hope for your sake that you ask forgiveness from the Flying Spaghetti Monster lest Bob Marley decides you should spend your afterlife in a 1980's crime movie.

"Joke Religion" sounds like Joe Republic's next username.

Yeah, after four years of being a non-disruptive poster on the forum, never considered a troublemaker, even someone who was liked well enough to be elected Atlasian President, Napoleon should be allowed to stay.

Since Scientology is the most prominent joke religion, I'm going to say negative overall.

I say negative.

Religion is something that people believe in really deeply.  To make a joke about it is to make a joke about god.  Even if someone follows a pagan religion, it is not a laughing matter, they are on the wrong path and need to be corrected.

I <3 the Flying Spaghetti Monster. They don't threaten me in any way, and I can appreciate the humor of Pastafarianism. Talk Like a Pirate Day is coming up soon. Smiley
