Dudeism – The World’s Slowest Growing Religion, Man!

Here is another guest contribution from Mark Townsend…enjoy!

Dudeism – ever heard of it? Possibly the coolest religion in the world and for real too, man. Based on the highly chilled out character and ethos of one Jeffrey Lebowski (The Dude) from the cult Coen brothers film, The Big Lebowski. Dudeism is proudly self-proclaimed as the ‘slowest-growing religion in the world’ and as ‘an ancient philosophy that preaches non-preachiness, practices as little as possible.’

You can even be ordained a Dudeist Priest… yeah, for real. And, in order to add a little hazy laid backness to my normally fast paced and tight assed life as a Christian priest… I signed up.

The Dudeist ‘Lama’ himself was so amused by the addition of a Christian Priest to the ranks of ordained Dudes that he invited me to be  interviewed for their ‘Dudespaper.’ The theme – Jesus and Dudeism. Well I couldn’t resist so, if you have a spare moment, check it out. It was fun to do – man.

  1. Well, Mark, hats of to you. A cool geeza priest. You give me bit of hope there you do, and this week i hope and I pray that i have met some open minded Christians. Because they seem very nice and the Priest seems like a cool geeza priest as well. I am trying to get something off the ground and at some point in the future if all goes well would like to invite you as a guest speaker. But I won’t hold my breath because it may not get up and running, people won’t like me and I will be run out of town. But thanks for being here and I will definately look at your books and maybe buy them as well. And you are one nice looking man to boot. That’s sexist so ignore!True but not politically incorrect. Hush my mouth. Anyway thanks.

  2. Well thank you Angela,

    Really kind words 🙂
    Hope your idea / plan comes to fruition!

    Love and light,
    Mark
