One time offer for all our space alien friends

plastic_alien_pope
The new Pope of the Church of Rome has said, when asked about it, that he would allow space aliens to be baptised and become member of the Church. So, here at the Mystic Order of the Black Sheep, the first thought that comes up is, can we top that? One-upmanship is a Discordian core value, after all.

Hell yeah, we can! We’re no speciesists, and in the spirit of Saint Bob, we’re willing to offer the papacy to anything sentient from anywhere in this universe or any other.

Why would we? for TEH LULZ. To see the Papacy spread across the Multiverse like smallpox across Turtle Island after the Spanish invasion would be too funny.

Now, there must be a catch, right? Yes, there is. As a Pope, you are the highest spiritual authority. That is, you can turn to no one for spiritual guidance. You must understand that first.

If you’re a baddie, you may try and convince others of your spiritual authority. Good luck with that. Alternately, you may pontificate any sentient being.

Whoever or whatever you are, you can become Pope of the Mystic Order of the Black Sheep by asserting your Papacy in the comment thread. If you do, however, I will have to excommunicate you immediately, because the one thing I can’t abide is anyone else’s spiritual authority. You found your own goddamn church.
