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?

Quote from:   Martha Gellhorn for The Atlantic 1961
The unique misfortune of the Palestinian refugees is that they are a weapon in what seems to be a permanent war...today, in the Middle East, you get a repeated sinking sensation about the Palestinian refugees: they are only a beginning, not an end. Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

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.

I may conceivably reconsider.

Knowing me it's more likely than not.

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.

No, you are on the wrong path and you 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
