Saints of Discordia are broken into five categories based upon power and contribution. The first category, Saint Second Class, is reserved for real beings. Fictional beings, not being actual, are more capable of perfection and belong to the other four.
Saint Second ClassEdit
To be reserved for all human beings deserving of Sainthood.
St. Norton I, Emperor of the United States and Protector of MexicoEdit
The first and only Emperor of the United States, Norton made purported insanity work for him, and proved that reality is what you can get away with. His grave near San Francisco is an official POEE shrine.
The creator of gonzo journalism.
St. Edward the Spectacularly Bad (Ed Wood)Edit
The creator of a new paradigm in cutting-edge cinematic surrealism.
St. Francis the Incoherent (Francis E. Dec, Esq.)Edit
This space left blank.
St. Archimedes the Screwy (Archimedes Plutonium)Edit
Advocate of the theory of Plutonium Atom Totality, Archimedes spectacularly unified ancient Greek religion and modern-day particle physics.
Honored for his timely turkey-cursing of the puppets of Greyface.
Saint Prostitute named "The Little Countess" by St. Emperor Norton.
Second incarnation of Socrates, Aliester Crowly and Dr Tim Leary.
Great Warrior Poet and jake survivor turned insane Discordian madman
In recognition of his being, by far, the most discordant president the United States has ever suffered, Richard M. Nixon was quickly recognized by some Discordian somewhere with canonization.
Noteworthy for displaying a complete disregard (some may even say contempt) for the law, and instituting the popular Operation Mindfuck subprogram of the War on Drugs so popular with our Bavarian Illuminati, who considered it an important stepping stone in our New World Order plan, and drug-smuggling CIA initiates everywhere.
Not so popular with our holy St. Hunter S. Thompson, but hey, infighting is a commercialized sport in our canon.
The Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum in Yorba Linda, CA is a popular pilgrumage site for Discordian masochists, especially since it is about an hour drive from the Brunswick Shrine.
"A third, very intriguing myth held that Malaclypse was a pen-name for Richard M. Nixon, who had allegedly composed the Principia during a few moments of lucidity."
--Pope Bob, introduction to the Loompanics edition, Principia Discordia
Good Saint material and definitely inspiring. Example: St. Yossarian (Catch 22, Heller)
Excellent Goddess-Saturated Saint. Example: St. Quixote (Don Quixote, Cervantes)
Comparable to Lt/Saint but has an established following (fictional or factual). Example: St. Bokonon (Cat's Cradle, Vonnegut)
Five Star SaintEdit
The Five Apostles of Eris.
Note: It is an Old Erisian Tradition to never agree with each other about Saints.
