There are no priests, clear hierarchy and rituals, and bacon used as a way of illustrating the absurdity of any religion.
The influx of followers is on the decline due to the fact that the Church is not satisfied with the free religious weddings, baptisms and funerals. Mostly in Las Vegas. The Church advertises itself on billboards.
It all started in 2010, when leading Comedy programs Penn’s Sunday School pan Jillette (Penn Jillette) came up with the idea to create officially registered the Church with a funny name, and then to demand for her the same rights as other religions (for example, to build buildings of worship and hold Church services).
