I just discovered Discordianism yesterday and am very intrigued by it, however I have just one question.  I keep reading about hot dogs, but eating hot dogs is not a nessecary practice, is it?  See, I am a vegetarian, and to me that comes first.

There are no necessary practices, except this one... which is not to say that you have to eat hot dogs. You as a vegetarian should be sure to abjure the hot dog and eat only the bun. In this, the Original Snub is still recognized.

Tofu dogs are yum. I recommend Smart Dogs or Tofu Pups.

As a genuine and authorized Pope, you are empowered to decide which practices are necessary and which aren't.

As are all popes, which is to say all practioners, hangers on, emulators, and anyone who has a pope card, ever had a pope card, ever heard of a pope card, etc. And thus is the chaos maintained and spread throughout the aether.

Hail Eris!

A Discordian is prohibited of believing what s/he reads.

Including the instructions to joyfully eat a hot dog on a Friday. And, of course, this entire LJ community.

This is just a symptom of what is wrong with Discordians today. No respect for the rules. They don't think the rules and codes apply to them. They think that these strict dietary laws are just suggestions and are playful whimsies.

editors note: oh, bloody hell, I just pressed post instead of...something else.

Define necessary.

For that matter, define practice.

And spend a lot more time talking to Discordians. You'll get the hang of it soon enough!

I spike a pope of Nermolia hereby declare that some of us are practicing and some of us are proficient. I further grant a dispensation unto whoever has watched people snatching bites off a hotdog hanging from a string while on the back of a motorcycle driven through the mud from actually eating a hotdog their own selves. So saith I all.

Of course hot dogs are a necessary practice. As it says in Scripture,
A Discordian is Required during his early Illumination to Go Off Alone & Partake Joyously of a Hot Dog on a Friday; this Devotive Ceremony to Remonstrate against the popular Paganisms of the Day: of Catholic Christendom (no meat on Friday), of Judaism (no meat of Pork), of Hindic Peoples (no meat of Beef), of Buddhists (no meat of animal), and of Discordians (no Hot Dog Buns).
If you fail to participate in this essential Discordian ritual, You will be a Heretical Discordian!!!.

Unlike all those Orthodox Discordians who follow scripture to the letter. Including the part where a Discordian is forbidden to believe what he reads.
