Practices and rituals help bind a community together, and help members of that community identify each other.
As a young religion, The Church of No, Thanks is still a little thin in the P&R department.
What are your ideas?
While we try to keep the rules to a minimum, there seems to be some value in differentiating the clergy from the laity. If you're starting a CoNT Meeting house, you should have the proper ceremonial vestments.
Sure you could go to a "religious supplies" store and buy "real clergy duds" (at highly inflated prices) or you could hop on over to Amazon, and get your duds there.

Of course, you could also just get a CoNT sweatshirt or CoNT zippered hoodie and be done with it.
Either way, for less than forty bucks you can get your CoNT on in style.
And, thus, Edmund spoke, "Santa, you are badly crazy."
In stead of a "collection plate", like you see in regular goddy churches, we could have a "Rejection Plate".
The Rejection Plate would have ... like... a $1 bill in it to start. Passed from Member to Member in a Meeting.
Each member has the following options:
1. Say, "No, Thanks." and pass it on.
2. Put money in the Rejection Plate.
3. Take money out of the Rejection Plate. Yes, it's permitted.
Any money in the Rejection Plate when it's finished its rounds would go toward covering Meeting expenses (fudge is not free, and good fudge is not cheap).
