Title: Dudeism Abomination
Post by: not_exactly_a_lightweight on March 09, 2010, 11:32:00 PM

Do you see what the Fucks down at my league office did to my business papers!!!

I guess I get this for working with a bunch of reactionaries.

Over this line you will not...

(by way, the the fucks only altered "Ordination", the names are deleted to protect the guilty)

It makes me wonder if there's a legal precedent there.  Afterall, surely it's illegal to make an unofficial copy of any kind of official certification, or alter it.  At the end of the day, it's the Church's seal on there, and an effigy of the Dudely Lama's signature, which aren't meant to be bandied about in an unofficial capacity.  I mean, would the law take measures on such fraud if it had been a doctor's medical degree, or even a bill of cleanliness from the health inspector?

That said, it did make me chuckle :P

And the obvious thing to ask them "Would they do that to a Muslim?"

That's a good point.  Maybe causually slip in a bit about a rise in Dudeist fundamentalists, pulling peices on lanes, and whathaveyou.  Maybe they'll think twice.

Hmmm... that is not cool man. I'm sure they could legally get in trouble for that however it won't exactly improve relations. I'd just shrug it off and perhaps explain Dudeism to them over a few oat sodas. Bridge the gap man.

Thanks for the sympathy reverends.
They were trying to "get" me, you know, uh like, piss me off.

There were two "gentlemen" in the room when they helped me/us discover it together. They were a bit dumbfounded when I said "Mark it eight, dude!"

Now if there were someone rich in the league office, he could easily compensate me for my fucking ordination...

They peed on the dude's ordination. That ordination really tied the room together, did it not?

Actually thinking about it this is an offence under article eighteen of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted on December 10, 1948.

Article 18.
Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.

Man they have violated your inalienably human right!

Yeah, but they're fuckin amateurs.

I'll drag the big league office into this, the fucks on the board , who know people in the consulate. They will know me for the nihilist cell I am. Well they would if I had other people in my cell... The people count is ok, we are just understaffed when the toe count is taken.

That's some limber thinking.  I really shouldn't leave my papers in a briefcase in the trunk of our car.

The nihilist who hatched this plot has told me that he put the original ordination behind the funny stuff. Kinda just slipped it under the door ...

So he does have some recognition of the esteem and prestige I have as an ordained what-have-you. When the joke wears down I will go put the real ordination out on display, properly,  And then I will go give the Chinaman an invoice.

See here in the UK I would have them under section Nine of the EU treaty of Human rights and can sue in UK courts.

Unfortunately I'm not very good with US Legislature, I'll have to take your word for it man.

I'm a DBA for the Natural History Museum (London, UK), but also a very prominent (as in not quiet about) practitioner of Paganism (and we get a lot of stick). Also I studied quite a bit of law and have run unions and represented groups and individuals against employers and Universities.

Ah, so you have papers.  I too dabble in IT work (software development), not in the UK of course.

Unions tend to make me upset, which causes my hair to fall out, but I'll allow as there are some nice folks in unions.

I have always worked with them as an aid to helping people (ie not get them fired, made redundant etc). I try not to get hung up on the politics of the whole thing.

Well, it's an interesting concept, but yes, it should be a complete Oxymoron.  The trouble is, almost every religion has its fundamentalists.  From the Crusaders, to the KKK, from Jihadists to shoe-bombers to name the most prominent ones we usually concern ourselves with.

You might be surprised to know there have been groups of fundamentalist Buddhists.  There's always been someone, of any belief, who'll take it just that one step too far.

I was considering writing a Dudespaper article on this subject in the future, when a few more examples crossed my path, because I've seen a few whacked out sorts really making some undudely rants in the name of Dudeism.  Which, I think you'll agree, has the makings of Dudeist Fundamentalism.  After all, the sorts of people who become fundamentalists are completely alien from their religious compeers, taking things out of context, smudging and ignoring key points in the ethos, etc.  Religion is a very interpretive thing, but most major religions all teach a message of peace and goodwill that some people choose to completely ignore when plotting to rig bombs and set large wooden crosses alight on their neighbour's lawn.
