This is also on Uncyclopedia as How to:Found a Religion without Looking Stupid. They’re threatening to delete it there. I'm not sure if I'll do enough work at Uncyclopedia to stop them deleting it. They alreadey have a similar article. I didn't know that when I started writing. if the article stays at Uncyclopedia you may want to rewrite this or delete it. I don't mind so long as it stays somewhere. I wrote all except one small section. Proxima Centauri 03:42, 28 September 2008 (EDT)

I put a delete template on at Uncyclopedia. It's now here only. Proxima Centauri

Proselyting religion?[edit]

Hi PC. I haven't added anything on this but you might want to add something along the lines of "Tell your followers to persuade as many people as they can to join the religion". I didn't add it because religions have historically used many different ways of "persuading" people, and I don't know how aggressive in their proselyting you might want your followers to be. Following up on that line, you'd obviously want to make sure the children were well indoctrinated as well.--Bobbing up 05:47, 5 October 2008 (EDT)

I don't understand[edit]

Why no mention of Cheese, Chocolate and/or Wine in the "now, have them give you things" section. Isn't the very definition of religion, the sacrifice to the gods of cheese, chocolate and/or wine? ;-)--Sun mowse.pngEn attendant Godot"«Her intense and pure religiousness took the form of her having equal faith in the existence of another world and in the impossibility of comprehending it in terms of earthly life.

Just so you know...[edit]

... I am a minister of the Church of the Divine Elvis.

In fact, to my knowledge, I am the Church of the Divine Elvis. MDB (talk) 12:56, 3 July 2012 (UTC)

Celibacy[edit]

As a somewhat over-weight gay man of 47 with suspect personal hygiene and no fashion sense I'm long since past my sell-by date and not getting any and I don't see why any of my acolytes should be getting any either. That means my target audience is going to be exactly the sort of people aren't getting any, the fat, the old, the insane, the ugly, the unhygienic and estate agents.

How do I square the circle and get a congregation of hot young things who are going to fulfil my every sordid whim without having them going at it like knives with each other? — Unsigned, by: Longdog / talk / contribs

Things to do[edit]

The religion should be Evil Cult Members list proofed ([1] is one example).

Decide what to do with ghosts (especially if the afterlife is a significant part of the faith). 86.134.53.34 (talk) 09:55, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
