Venganza.org is basically the only church we have. We don't really feel the need for too much really ritualized worship like regular attendance at a meeting hall. If you want a meeting, have it at your house or on a ship, and serve pasta.

We had a ceremony on a real one 'The Golden Hind' on the Thames London but failing that every pub/bar/place with grog is a damn fine temple to his noodlyness

I am at this very moment worshipping him at home while through some fine belgium grog

Right. The money spent building a church could go to far worthier causes.

What kind of sadistic god would force someone to go to an hour (But it seems so much longer) of complete boredom? That's one of the reason's I like this god :fsm: If he did have a church, it would have booze, spaghetti, and strippers; all on a boat!

You fail again at Nazi-ism, Zank.

I left thos uncapitalised for a reason. People capitalise things to show respect. If ptz didn't want to respect something, I wasn't going to make him. Unless that something is proper spelling.

Don't buy into the bunk that PirateGuy passes off as grammar! Things that need be capitalized, should be capitalized, regardless of one's personal sentiments.

English may be an emotional language, but that doesn't mean it pays attention to your emotions!
