‘World’s newest slacker religion? Dudeism’


Hailed as the “fastest-growing religion in the world”—not confident in the accuracy of that statement—Dudeism has a homepage and a mascot. (“Yeah, I’ve got a rash, man.”)

The idea is this: Life is short and complicated and nobody knows what to do about it. So don’t do anything about it. Just take it easy, man. Stop worrying so much whether you’ll make it into the finals. Kick back with some friends and some oat soda and whether you roll strikes or gutters, do your best to be true to yourself and others - that is to say, abide.

Courtesy of the Bible Belt Blogger who points out this line from Duderonomy 5: “Respect everyone’s point of view. It’s just, like, their opinion, man.”

Stephen Prothero would disagree.
