Looking for sithism is a pointless pursuit. At least this site I recognized in the US as a 501c3, while sithism (from the decent research I've done) is people agreeing that the other guy isn't a real sith, without saying what real sithism actually is

If what you are looking for is government recognition of tax exempt status, or a community that will constantly tell you how much they love you and how great you are despite achieving nothing in life, then Sithism is probably not for you. There is definitely an element of competition and meritocracy within the Sith subculture.

I guess I can't say much in regards to this, although I don't normally hear good things about Sith but never met one so I don't really know. Who knows what is considered "real" sithism anyway? Like what is "real" Sithism or real Jediism or real Islam or real Christianity? What is considered real? Is one considered real and the other fake, or are two just simply different branches from each other?

My post speaks to the point that regardless of how TOTJO runs (or Islam or Christianity) there are codified doctrinal points to base interpretations on, a certain level of hierarchy and internal cohesion, and something more unifying than an edgy aesthetic. I don't dislike sith, I just don't take sithism seriously

Your facepalming gifs don't actually say what you believe, whereas TotJO has an aptly names doctrine portion called "Jedi Believe"

The concept of orthodoxy and heterodoxy is a conversation always in a specific context. You can't have heterodox beliefs on the flying spaghetti monster because it was artificed relatively recently. Jediism cites it's sources and the purposeful broadness of interpretation is a stance we hold (as opposed to exclusive belief of other religions). Promoting sith opposition here is silly because

A.) Sith are welcome here, they aren't the opposite of Jediism as far as I can tell
B.) There aren't a significant number of sith, much less well-spoken sith
C.) You could somehow get wider opinions on sithism from siths than you could about Jediism from Jedi (the difference is, we do that purposely)
D.) We're a Jedi website, so discussion of sith beliefs isnt forbidden or even discouraged, but ultimately tangential

But who knows, maybe I haven't done exactly whatever you think I need to do to be taken seriously by the sith
¯\_(ツ)_/¯
