These are the principles of the Church of the Subgenius, an obscure

apocalyptic religious cult that is devoted to attaining superiority through

the Path of Least Resistance. Their belief is that the important part of

salvation is not to have one's transgressions forgiven, but excused, and

the DIVINE EXCUSE gives them the freedom to conduct activities that would

not otherwise receive societal approval.
