On This Spock I Will Build My Church

July 18, 2007

“The Spock”

The World’s Only Church of Star-Trek

If you want to click the link and read the article I will leave that in your capable hands, but here’s what I thought was the best part about this whole thing:

The Spock” is not without controversy, as reportedly in the late 1980’s disagreement arose within the church over the lengths to which members should go in emulating the purely logical and emotionless Vulcan approach to life. Some members advocated a reasonable degree of emotion (citing Mr. Spock’s half-human side), but a core group of hard-line members insisted on a rigid adherence to Vulcan ideology. The stricter view won out, and as a result, several members left the church and publicly denounced its practices.

Even in the church of Spock there is battles between Conservatives and Liberals and a church split! This sort of thing should be sobering to Christians involved in the same sort of shenanigans at their churches, but I’m willing to bet it won’t.

What I don’t understand is how they got the same podium as Joel Osteen.

Finally, I found a “video text” that has been suppressed by the church in an attempt to keep their fake Spock as a means of manipulating their parishioners with religion. Oh they will call it heresy, but this is the “Lost Gospel of Spock” that will free all their followers from any arbitrary rules that the church has set up, and enable them to follow the true Spock in any way they choose. {If easily offended DO NOT watch the first video but skip straight away to the second.}

Me (over-dramatically): Scotty, this post (pause) kind of sucks. I need (pause) more (pause) humor.

Scotty: Yoo juss con’t due eet, yoo don ‘ave the pow’r.

    I thought we hid those recordings in the Sinai. At least you didn’t find the clay jars filled with references to Spock in the feminine and as the embodiment of wisdom.

    lol – I suppose next you will tell me that only the original sayings of Spock from the 1960’s show are authentic. All new “versions” are heretical!

    I guess i can never go to Virginia now…
    Totally, Spock is half human, right? So he has to have a little emotion, but he is a guy and logical. Damn fundemental non-emotionalists.
    And about Spock and Kirk..whatcha think?
    And yeah, of course only the 1960’s sayings are truth!
    i actually can not believe there was an eposide with spocks shirt off, how did they do that?
    Dude, Joel stole that podium from spock.
    I love this post, too much good stuff.
    I had to turn off the second video, blasphemy….

    The True Church follows the way of Sarek, Spock’s full-blooded Vulcan father.

    If there is a Church of Spock, is Sheldon Cooper their Pope? Is there a Virgin Amy in it?
