Outside a US courthouse a noodley nativity scene appears

Outside a US courthouse a noodley nativity scene appears

This Xmas Eve I offer Freethinker readers greetings for the festive season … and this Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster banner spotted on the lawn outside a courthouse in America.

It was posted on Reddit yesterday by “Nintendoplayer 64”.

“Un_theist” responded with this prayer:

Our pasta, who art in a colander, draining be your noodles. Thy noodle come, Thy sauce be yum, on top some grated Parmesan. Give us this day our garlic bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trample on our lawns. And lead us not into vegetarianism, but deliver us some pizza, for thine is the meatball, the noodle, and the sauce, forever and ever. Ramen.

    We will have reached a huge step forward for mankind when we can equally take the piss out of Islam and all other profit (prophet) making institutions.
    Happy New Year everyone.

    OT, but too good to miss: A Church of England spokesperson said, “The increase in those identifying as ‘no faith’ reflects a growing plurality in society rather than any increase in secularism or humanism.”

    This comment came after a further fall in religious belief was revealed. Now, admit it folks, that is sheer class as an example of weasel words. (Sorry weasels). I just love that “rather.”

    @Broga
    Their heads remain buried firmly in the sand, I’m afraid. They’ll tell themselves anything to avoid accepting the uncomfortable truth that they have become an irrelevant sideshow whose numbers today are made up almost entirely of old folk who just blindly follow what they were told to believe about this country and its society as children. And of course, no one should trust expert opinion anymore. Heaven forbid! (Come to think of it, they all sound like a bunch of Brexiteers. Which is probably exactly what they are. But that is a whole other story.)

    Have a happy winter solstice everybody. And thanks for another year of free-thinking enlightenment, Mr Duke.
