(P*) indicates a parody religion. Parody religions are not typically included here due to their mockery of “actual” religions; in this case, Discordianism is debatable, while the SubGenius Church was part of a group post. Others such as Pastafarianism (or the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster) will not be included on this blog.

PSA: This list is first and foremost for me, so I can keep track of all of my tags and see what is/is not already included. If something is listed more than once, there is a reason for it; it is not a mistake, it is just my personal filing system. I only like to publicize this list for the benefit of followers.
