Whenever special considerations are afforded on religious grounds, the need arises to determine what exactly qualifies as a religion. I propose a test wherein a belief is assessed for its wrongness, the number of believers, and their sincerity. If the result of multiplying these parameters exceeds some threshold, then we're dealing with a religion.
With many churches struggling financially, perhaps they could learn something from the rather more profitable football clubs. I'm envisioning a system wherein saints and prophets are traded similarly to football players. Annual leagues could then be held with encounters taking place in RPG form. Surely that would attract more of an audience than a dry sermon by a tired old priest.
@mansr Given that no two religions can define a calendar in the same way, it might be difficult to organise the leagues.
A nice little Mastodon instance. Mild trolling encouraged (keep it local), but not required. Malicious behaviour is not tolerated. Follow Wheaton's law and you'll be fine.
