In a world gone electronic, Postal Communicants long for simpler times, when a handshake sealed the deal and the neighborhood postman cheerily delivered eagerly awaited cereal box-top prizes, comic books or a letter from a dear pen pal.
Condemning the Postal Communicants as anachronistic simpletons, this reclusive sect believes Truth can only be rendered on the LCDs of personal digital devices and is transmitted via infrared beaming, for “beneath the surface of things lies infra.”
Originally part of an obscure order of monks whose stark ascetic dogma demands celibacy, limits ingestion of anything thicker than kelp soup and forbids speaking to fellow monks, this sub-sect was formed after an abbé discovered a loophole in the order’s credo that allows unlimited long-distance calling.
These zealots believe salvation is attained via crude sock puppets with happy faces drawn on them. Convinced humans lack free will, but that sock puppets are fully autonomous beings that can channel The Truth, these fanatics angrily demand obedience, spewing invectives against traditional, non-puppet and marionette-dominated religions.Home
