It is about being sanctimonious and believing in fairies at the bottom of the garden.

Most of all, it is meant to be boring.

You worry too much, Don. The watchword in our new creed is bendability - oops, sorry, flexibility. The hierarchy have determined that your free-thinking maverick qualities would fit in very well, potentially qualifying you for high-priest status even, and your apricot wine would be a prime candidate for our communion service (as long as our bioassays conclude that it doesn't clash synergistically with magic mushrooms, of course...)


As far as I know, militant atheists have never burned anyone at the stake, nor started a crusade nor jihad against anyone else.

Disappointingly true, Dick, but you may rest assured that our Diabolic Department is working on it this very minute...

Now, chaps (not to include chapesses as yet, as our precise level of misogyny has yet to be clarified), I'm detecting something of an over-abundance of enthusiasm here, tinged with a definite touch of indiscipline. I mean, Musket old chap/deputy Messiah, for example, you might talk like this in Sheffield:
Steve and I might pull it off after all
...but we do have to think of the sensibilities of our wider catchment. I am thinking that a strong sexual element would provide a major draw, but let's not get too hasty, know what I mean? Better at this juncture to concentrate on our core values. We need a deadly sanction for those who would demur (all other religions have 'em, so why not us?), and we need to figure out a good order of service for our Wednesday night pre-bingo bash. One or two hymns, a bit of certainty-preaching and a ritual involving Don's apricot wine and, possibly, a portion per person of Sloppy Giuseppe if we can get them BOGOF at Sainsbury's. First things first.

Ach, to hell with the naysayers! (Or, if not hell, some nasty place as yet to be determined: Widnes springs to mind...) Now, Musket, in the interests of unity we should go back to regarding ourselves as co-Messiahs. I still need a woman by the way (oops, wrong thread... ;-) ). In the meantime, I'm working on the Commandments, which I hope to publish on this site later today. Be assured that your doubts about our equal top billing will be assuaged. I'm thinking that you can run things on a daily basis and make the big decisions, a quasi-papal sort of chap, whilst I perform more of a ceremonial role (a bit like God, who does bugger all but gets thanked for doing everything. Yeah, reckon I could live with that - for eternity, of course. Heheh!). Don't do anything drastic (though you could track down a woman - I'm not bloody washing up after the bingo...)

Hey! I just realised - Grandad was a Cossack and a Priest!

Er, Dave, and I'm trying to let you down gently here, are you sure he wasn't just a priest (and a dirty bugger at that) with a cassock? You don't have to prove yourself, you know - your shapely credentials are enough for us...

Widnes works for me, Co-Messiah. The REALLY bad could go to Ellesmere Port though and gaze with longing on Port Sunlight. Without wishing to preempt your commandments, Oh Mighty Bingo Caller who art in Heaven (Kirkby Lonsdale on a spring morning maybe?), can I begin on the Toerag. The acolytes, or seeing as it is lighting worship should that be electrolytes? Anyway, the acolytes need guidance. I thought I would start what I mentioned earlier.

Lightning Balls are the fundamental tenet of our faith. No other lightning or balls shall be tolerated. All other lighting shall be dismissed and all other balls cut off.

Should any of the faithful become possessed by demons, lesser Gods or the Police on returning from Holy Bingo on a Sunday with too much apricot wine inside, then the exorcism shall be performed by mighty Exocet, who shall purge all such evils from them.

How am I doing so far?

Pretty sure, oh Lord, but I could be suffering from a delusion brought on by my childhood in Russian Orthodoxy followed by conversion to Roman Catholicism (or was it North Sea Gas?). I shall be grateful if your omniscience would guide me. On that topic. I am a believer, yet I have not yet seen the balls of lightning. When will you and your co-messiahs be displaying your balls for all to see? I understand you are having trouble recruiting the third member? Maybe this is because she has not yet seen the balls herself?

I believe Messiahs do save people. You could incorporate that in a test on holy scriptures. Ask potential electrolytes to complete the following phrase

If you save fallen women would you save

"Dogmatists pound their drums so hard that they can't hear one another. Their audiences, on the other hand, are unaware of the traveling dog and pony shows featuring the same adversaries over and over, who simulate surprise and "gotcha" moments. The only voice of reason in Puebla was that of Dan Dennett, who spoke about religion not as something hateful but rather as a phenomenon that begs investigation as part of human society, human nature even. Clearly, religion is man-made, so the question is what good does it do for us. Are we born to believe and, if so, why? Dennett is not as sure as the neo-atheists with whom he is often lumped together that religion is irrational or that the world would be a better place if its demise were hastened, noting, "I am still agnostic about that."

Now, as your ceremonial Messiah I'm going to dictate that you sup the following wines, all under a fiver (we haven't usurped enough major artworks as yet or got enough fascist dictators on board to fund anything dearer). Asda French Marsanne (a white) at £4.50. Sainsbury's House Pinot Noir at £4.50, and, best of all (bar Don's apricot communion nectar, of course), Tesco's Simply Garnacha at £4.59. I am recommending these ex cathedra. It is not possible that anyone will regret buying any of these (and I mean it!). I'm thinking of excommunicating anyone who drinks anything with either Echo Falls or Gallo on the label. My theory is that the producers of these are juice-lovers and evolution-deniers. Nah, not theory. I'm all-knowing (I forgot that for a minute there), so I know these things to be true. Just like evolution. Thirty years ago it would have been Watney's Special or Double Diamond, but one has to keep up with the times, even if time is infinite to one.

The commandments will have to wait until tomorrow, as my whole evening was taken up with Spain v Italy in the Confederations Cup, which went to extra time and penalties in an absolute thriller (which I'd engineered, of course). Spain won the penalty shootout (I had to tweak that one too: I will not under any circumstances have Iniesta on the losing side, and I am the Messiah, you know). I'm thinking of having the aforementioned Andrés as deputy Pope. I have a spare purple frock somewhere. You OK with that, Musket?
