I am a saint in the church of Emacs.

If you become an expert user of GNU+Linux, you can celebrate that with our ceremony, the Foobar Mitzvah, in which you chant a portion of our sacred scriptures β€” that is to say, the source code of the system. In the Church of Emacs we have put an end to the priesthood of technology: everyone is free to read our sacred scriptures.

I use Emacs daily. Whenever I install a new GNU+Linux distro, first thing I install/check is Emacs.

However, the Church of Emacs is not only about Emacs, but is about free software. Being a saint in the Church of Emacs requires to live a pure life. Purity in the Church of Emacs means exorcising whatever evil, proprietary operating systems or computer programs have possessed computers that are under your control, or set up for your regular use.

We play the Free Software Song, our hymn, in the Church of Emacs.

Saint IGNUcius says: Some people don’t realize that Saint IGNUcius is Saint IGNUcius’ way of not taking himself too seriously. Therefore, warning: taking the Church of Emacs (or any church) too seriously may be hazardous to your health.
