Alright, This Is Ri-Goddamn-Diculous

As many of you know, I am about as anti-religion as you can get. That means that when I see an article like this one that talks about a member of the Kansas Board of Education getting her barbed-wire panties in a knot about a picture of the Flying Spaghetti Monster in a classroom, it gets stuck in my teeth like a pube in my cheeseburger. I must address it immediately.

Connie Morris, the prissy little douche who complained to the principal about the picture, was one of the people who voted to include "criticisms of evolution" in Kansas schools. The teacher, Randy Mousley, had both the FSM picture and a Doonesbury cartoon (most likely the one with the doctor talking to the creationist about his TB) up on his door.

There were at least two people on the Board school tour who did not vote for the inclusion of religion in science classes, those being Carol Rupe and Sue Gamble. They made sure that the principal knew that Morris had no weight to throw around (not for her lack of effort). It's nice to know that Kansas has normal people, not just Thumpers who need the Lord to invade every aspect of everyone's lives.

The Board chairman, who, sadly, voted for Jesus, said that he thought the Flying Spaghetti Monster is "silly". He was quoted as saying, "Personally, I think it's juvenile." Yeah, much like it's juvenile for grown adults to believe in an invisible friend and try to include their buddy Jebus in science class? Sort of like that?

To balance the...what's the word?...retardedness of the previous article, I direct you to this piece from the Huffington Post. There has to be balance in my world or the drooling psalm monkeys start to overwhelm me. Enjoy.

Oh I love that stance. It's like when you ask Christians why they consider their invisible god to be real yet all other gods to be myths. It's just embarassing to hear a an adult talking about invisible gods and angels.
