Look, I'm not particularly religious, but I get that faith helps a lot of people. However, when your religion exists solely on the internet and it was popularized by anime, it's pretty safe to say you've made a wrong decision. I mean, technically Jashinism is the worship of some ancient Japanese god, but everyone who posts on The Jashinist Temple forums clearly learned about it from Naruto.
I'm just learning about this particular set of beliefs, and even the commandments read like bad fanfiction. They start off with the MOST METAL of all commandments, which is to never leave a sacrifice alive. Which makes sense, I guess - it's hard to call Jeff a sacrifice if Jeff is walking around downtown the next day. Your Japanese deathgod is probably going to be pissed.
The commandments contradict themselves a fair amount, too: no sex (it's apparently a "man-made pleasure," akin to drugs), but if you have kids, somehow, they also must be a part of your religion. I figured these kids were all about the FUCK YOU, MOM AND DAD shit, and it appears they are, to some degree, but I guess their hypothetical HELLSPAWN will probably be cool with them because they'll totally let them stay up late to watch the anime block on Adult Swim.
Anyway, this site is actually a fucking forum, but there aren't many posts at all so I clicked around and found the highlights!
Given our society's obsession with stalking and ridiculing celebrities, it's tempting to seek a life of anonymity. But beware: not being famous has its own hidden costs.
Mass Effect: Andromeda turns its nose up at the original trilogy's rigid morality. It boasts a more nuanced and intellectually compelling shades-of-grey approach in which a heart icon pops up when it's time to tell an alien to take their clothes off.
Awful Links of the Day spotlights the worst and weirdest websites on the internet. And we're not talking "weird" in a good way either.
