Praise The Dude

BANGKOK, Thailand (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One mellow religion just wants its followers to chill out.

The Church of Dudeism is spreading the gospel of “take it easy” through the lessons taught by The Dude from the cult classic The Big Lebowski.

Founder Oliver Benjamin says Dudeism isn’t all that new. In fact, the earliest form of Dudeism was Chinese Taoism until it “went all weird.”

He adds, “The originator of Taoism basically said, ‘smoke ’em if you got ‘em.’ That’s what Dudeism says.”

Dudeism decrees that life is short and complicated, so people should just do nothing and enjoy themselves.

Benjamin names Quincy Jones, Julia Child, and Jesus Christ as the ultimate purveyors of Dudeism for their ability to “enlighten up.”

Like other religions, there are rules to be followed.

For example, fresh creamer must be used when preparing the sacramental beverage – White Russians – and followers should write checks whenever possible and never trust an African- American cab driver who likes The Eagles.
