Website Allows You to Rate Your Priest

The Internet 5

Are you in the market for a German priest but want to make sure you're not getting second rate religious guidance? If so, Hirtenbarometer (shepherds' barometer) is the website for you. There priests are rated on performance at services, good works, credibility, and ability to keep their subject matter current and relevant. From the article: "Ratings for priests on the site are represented by sheep, whose woolly coats range from white to black to visually express a priest's rating. The pope and other prominent German priests so far sport light to middle grey wool."

Does the site include a default setting ... (1)

... of "hypocritical charlatan"?

"You can assign on a scale of 1 to 6 points, while the reverse is true for the school grading system. 1 point means very bad (the sheep is black) and 6 points mean very good (the lamb is white). "

Well, that's as clear as mud.

But the site claims to be "open to all faiths". So ... as a good Pastafarian, I feel ... the need ...

If the search for a shepherd not a result have provided, you can use the function "Add new herders' use and create as a new shepherd. Please note that your pastor must be a known public figure.

I think His Bobbyness qualifies.

After a quick check we will activate your pastors immediately available and known to you on request by e-mail.

I bet my account is going to be cancelled very shortly.

What to do when looking for my religion missing? Our religion is far from complete list, but we work to ensure that it continues to grow. You can help us to improve Hirtenbarometer.de by writing us what religion you are missing. Send your proposal to info@hirtenbarometer.de. We look forward to your post.

This is going to be more fun than pulling the wings off flies. And ethically it is much, much more justifiable.

What a list of "dignities"! "Church President" seems ... least wrong.

Well, that was a bit long drawn-out a process, but it's a valid contribution.

And now .. it's lunchtime. If it's spaghetti and meatballs for lunch, I shall take that as a benediction from the Noodly Appendage!.

Hmmm, isn't that the same as the Kinsey scale [wikipedia.org] ?

I dread to think. And since it's lunch time, and I do remember what the Kinsey report was about ... I'll not follow that link until lunch is well and truely settled.

Dispite the temptation... (1)

to say First Priest!

I think we need to know what rating systems they are using? Clearly attributes such as Cold Hands?, Circumcised?, Nasty wine breath? and rarely caught in the alterboy are good ways to rate them.
