My, you're being polite.

From the webpage:

Quote
The Universal Life Church Monastery strongly believes in the rights of all people from all faiths to practice their religious beliefs, regardless of what those beliefs are, be they Christian, Jew, Gentile, Agnostic, Atheist, Buddhist, Shinto, Pagan, Wiccan, Druid or even Dignity Catholics; so long as they do not infringe upon the rights of others and are within the law of the land and one’s conscience.

We ordain ministers, priests, rabbis and clergy worldwide who are totally non-religious or even anti-religious.

Even Dignity Catholics?

What is a Dignity Catholic?
"This is the one from the beginning, who seemed to be new, yet was found to be ancient and always young, being born in the hearts of the saints."

I hope they paint icons. We could use some additions to Schlock Icons thread.
I just need to find out how to say it in Slavonic!

We can always request an icon section. Of course, without telling them the real reason.

I'm glad you asked.  It's the Zoroastrian Celtic calendar as applied to the lunar cycle of Jupiter's Io.  I created it to clear up any confusion within all the jurisdictions.

Sounds good to me, but I'm having trouble visualizing it.  Would you mind posting it for us, please?
