WEIRD RELIGION

Coming soon to a theatre near you hopefully, is a documentary about, a church, a church perhaps like any other you may have come across. I’ve followed them in various online forms over the years. Started by two self-professed weirdos, who created new personae for themselves and a prophet for their community, The Church of the Subgenius is out there in the world messing with our concepts of normal. The church forms part of what Erik Davis calls the weirding of religion which happened in the culture and consciousness of postwar American culture. You can find plenty of entertaining stuff until the documentary comes out, you can even get yourself ordained if you wish!
