Schisms

Schisms

As with many faith systems, Thwogism is not without schisms. There are split ranks among Thwog's followers, whether intentional or otherwise. For the most part, few if any acknowledge following Thwog anyway, so those observable schisms must be extrapolated as almost all knowledge of Thwog.

  • Avoidance. This branch of Thwogist thought holds the theory the best way to deal with Thwog is to avoid Him. Towards this end they go to great lengths to deny His existance, insult him, revile Him and basically do anything they can to make Him go away! This is the main stream of Thwogism today.
  • Embracing. This branch of Thwogist thought also denies his existance, but emulates his behavior. In spite of claims of caring and loyalty to others, it becomes rapidly clear their actual motivations are not necessarily caring or loving in any stretch of the imagination, they do however take incompetence to new levels every day. Many of them can be seen in the highest levels of business and government. You need look no further than a presidential election or a corporate board meeting to see the highest level devotees of this branch.
  • Entertainment. This is a minor branch, followers who relay the more amusing aspects of how Thwogist behavior and His intervention reaches us every day. The folk at News of the Weird are a good example of this.
