The real trick would be to stay completely true to everything you believe in, and attempt to engage them in rational discourse at every turn. Your actual beliefs are sufficiently bizarre to provoke unending ridicule, and being yourself is the only way to attract those who will like you for who you are.

Most people (in the US anyway, probably elsewhere too) operate with a paradigm wherein, when science and religion mix, important things explode. The idea of recreational, creative theology is utterly alien to them.Zcross wrote:...revere her as the Creatrix or whatever...

There is a category on PoE dedicated to Jennifer and her comics. I stumbled upon it before via Google and read through a few of the threads, which were absolutely sickening. Seeing the site mentioned in today's interview reminded me of it. The type of people who visit and regularly contribute their hate and bile to those types of sites are the most contemptible of the Internet and... well... society too IMO.
Sorry to go off topic with my little rant here, but I really hate how juvenile and hateful the Internet has become. Although it wasn't listed, 4chan is another example. I remember when the online anime community was defined by sites like Jennifer's Otakuworld, where people would get together to share in that fandom, contribute their creative works, and engage in worthwhile discussions. Now I feel disgusted to even admit that I watch anime out of fear that I will be associated with the likes of people who visit sites like 4chan. Despite all that the Internet offers and provides to us these days, I still prefer to think back on simpler times when sites like Something Awful, Portal of Evil, and 4chan never existed.
