FAQ on Rachel's View of the Church of the SubGenius

Q: Is the Church of the SubGenius Rachel Bevilacqua's religion?
A: No. Rachel Bevilacqua views the Church of the SubGenius as an art movement dedicated to cherishing the uniqueness of each individual and promoting free expression by all people everywhere, as long as it harms no one.
Q: Well, what does the government say?
A: The government agrees that The SubGenius Foundation, Inc., the corporation which does business under the performance name of "The Church of the SubGenius", is a "fan club" roughly classified in the same category as the Star Trek fan club that does business as "Star Fleet", and with roughly the same level of geeky obscurity.
The SubGenius Foundation is a corporation that produces radio shows, an online magazine, books, etc, and arranges venues for free expression of performance art, hopefully of the highly comedic variety and loosely based around characters in a series of science fiction/humor books published by reputable publishing houses and sold in bookstores across the nation.
