Why did you take the Discordian holy name "Bishop Sanctimonious The Hypocritical"?

Quite simple, really. There are so many people in positions of religious authority that claim to be infallible or beyond reproach, free of sin, or otherwise "holier than thou." They take high-falootin names and titles to reflect this status. But you know what their supposed status means? BS.

It is bullshit! Nobody is perfect! Nobody CAN be perfect! "Perfect" is a highly subjective label anyway, like "good," "evil," and "beauty." One man's perfection is another man's Lovecraftian horror. There are at least 10 reality tunnels for every human being on the planet, which means nobody can really agree on anything anyway.

Besides which, even if we could all agree on what "perfect" meant, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE. It is an ideal, an impossible standard that nobody could ever so much as hope to achieve. If there were a God (in the traditional sense, not the Yahweh Silver Tongue sense), even It would not, COULD NOT, be perfect.

And, even assuming such a thing as Perfect were possible, nobody human could ever hope to be Perfect; and despite what some may think, everyone who has ever lived on this planet and taken human form has been human. Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, and all the rest included.

But besides, we have all the proof in the world that most of the fools who claim to be infallible or whatnot are not. "Holier than thou" tends to be a smokescreen so you don't see the fact that they sin at least as much as normal people, and probably 10 times more and 10 times worse. Look at how "pure" and "blessed" and "sinless" some of these evangelical ministers have been thought to be, only to find out later that they were fucking little boys up the ass, a very un-Christian thing to do.

We all fuck up. No matter how high-minded we may be, we all make mistakes and that's alright. Jesus lost track of time in the desert and, in a pissed off mood, hexed a fig tree because he was goddamn hungry and that fucking tree was taunting him, the little slut. He also had a pissy fit in the temple because those goddamn godless money changers were metaphorically pissing all over the holy shit. Ghandi was sexist. Buddha had a fondness for pork in a day and age when eating pork was the food equivalent of Russian Roulette. I'm sure Martin Luther King Junior had faults, too, I just can't be arsed to find out what they were, right now.

And so, one reason for taking the Discordian holy name "Bishop Sanctimonious the Hypocritical" is so nobody expects too much of me, so nobody makes the mistake of thinking I'm "holier than thou," because I'm not. Unless your definition of "holy" is "loves fucking, loves food, loves porn, curses like a sailor, bisexual, polyamorous, into some kinky shit, and is devilishly handsome," in which case I am the holiest goddamn motherfucker I know.

Then, of course, the other reason for taking the name is to acknowledge the fact that we all fuck up.

That, and I just like having the initials BS. :-)
