A Brazilian Overwatch Fan Has Founded an Official Hanzo Church

hanzo-320

The church of Hanzo might be real, but I bet their tenets forbid pushing the payload.

You might think you like Overwatch, and you might even like Hanzo, but do you like Hanzo enough to found a church to worship him? One fan in Brazil did exactly that - not because he loves Hanzo so much, but just to show how easy it is to found a religion there.

The fan is one Mateus Mognon, who wrote a lengthy post (translated by Google) explaining the process and reasoning behind the idea. Basically, it was an experiment to show just how easy it is to create a religious institution in Brazil, and thereby avoid paying taxes in many cases.

All Mognon needed was a physical address, five people to sign on, a lawyer's signature, and some fees. A few days later, he was the proud founder of the Hanzo National Church.

It's a very interesting read, but we're more concerned about the religious implications of not pushing the payload. Can you get to heaven without pushing? Or does sniping profit you more?

I shall let the dragon consume me. I shall hunt for the prey that are my sins.

If you don't play the objective, all you will know is defeat.

And Blizzards fanbase wonders why normal people call them cultists...

Christ, what is wrong with the guy?

I mean, clearly only healers and some tanks are worthy of worship.

Take this, all of you, and use it. For it is my armor which I have given up for you.

The one true faith.

The Ten Commandments of the Hanzo National Church:

1: Thou shalt play no other hero before Hanzo.
2: Thou shalt dodge any game in which the one true Hanzo is not available.
3: Thou shalt blame all others before thyself when the Defeat screen is displayed.
4: Thou shalt remain as far away from the objective as possible.
5: Thou shalt demand that all Widowmakers switch to Support instead while refusing to switch thyself.
6: Thou shalt defend to the death thy right to score headshots when thy target isn't visible.
7: Thou shalt spam arrows from afar when teamfights break out and hope for the best.
8: Thou shalt always say "gg ez" despite the phrase having been censored by non-believer mortals.
9: Thou shalt gloat as though thou art the greatest of players when scoring a team kill with thine ult when thy enemies are imprisoned in a Zarya ult.
10: RYUU GA WAGA TEKI WO KURAU!!!

Gather round bjothers and sisters!

Personally, I have no qualm about getting down on my knees to please Hanzo... Or McCree... Or Soldier: 76... Or Reinhardt... Or Lucio... Or Junkrat... Or Genji...
