Dudeism insulted
« on: September 20, 2011, 05:01:54 PM »
I was just recently accused of being in a cult by a relative (on a Facebook post no less). I wanted to throw a coffee cup at her head, so I got out of my own way, poured another glass of wine, and composed a light-hearted response.  I  felt insulted, and that Dudeism was insulted.  I think she realized her mistake, because the thread is no longer there!

Anyone else have this happen?

So true; the founding dudes of the US would have been hung for treason if we would have lost. And, would have gone down in history as traders.

Um, you mean "traitors" I think.  Trading was another part of British/North American history...  ;-)

Cult: A particular system of religious worship, especially with reference to its rites and ceremonies.

Also: A group or sect bound together by veneration of the same thing, person, ideal, etc.

Both stolen from Dictionary.com.

We are a cult. All religions are. I remember back when I met my special lady. She was a mormon back then. Man, she'd get pissed when I talked about her "cult".

Cult is fine, actually a Dudeist Priest is a Cult Minister, sect is not.  8)

That might be a chance for a wise word from the dude; AKA, "fuck it, can't be bothered by that shit."

at what point does a cult become a religion?
with so many dudely ministers surely we are beyond cult status? not that its a bad thing to have cult status, look at Jim Morrison!
i for one noted dudeism as my religion on the recent UK census and when i renew my license next year, am tempted to change my title to rev.

You bring up a good point. IMHO, a cult is characterized by it's followers, in that they allow themselves to be brainwashed. And will drink cool-aid without questioning what's in it.  That's why I took offense to being labeled a follower of such ilk.

And hey, welcome milnie - the bar's over there...

Hi milnie, welcome in our beach community, I've had the same thought about putting Rev. On my id card. I should lose it another time first.

Well hominid, I make that distinction between a cult and a sect, but it's probably something like splitting hair. Anyway that's just her opinion so, well, you already know. The problem is that for some people cult and sect are the same thing while in reality are not. There isn't a Sect Minister.

BTW is harry potter a cult too? And the Lord of the Ring? Or was the Ringer?  8)

I think it's star trek (with klingon as a recognized real life language somewhere so I hear), star wars (Jediism), and TBL (dudeism) fall far from a cult. Those are more of a cult like following for the fans of them, as well as, the Lord of the Rings, Chronicles of Narnia, and the Potter series with devout followers (non spiritual sense).  I think that with the many viewpoints that change over time everything is up for grabs.

Sorry your going to have to be clearer here this doesn't make sense.
