Blasphemy at Discovery Institute
Red State Rabble reveres the Flying Spaghetti Monster. That's why we are so deeply disturbed by the blasphemous attitude displayed by non-believers such as Robert Crowther of the Discovery Institute.
"It's too bad that they'll get attention for this sort of drivel when we have a robust scientific research program that the media doesn't seem to want to write much about," Discovery Institute spokesman Robert Crowther said of the noodly appendage in an e-mail interview with USAToday.
Being perhaps a bit over-tolerant, RSR is willing to overlook Crowther's impiety, but we urge him to reflect on the possibility that any media attention redirected from the Flying Spaghetti Monster to the DI's "robust scientific research program" might have the unintended effect of exposing it for the sham it is.
The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, a bargain at $13.95, comes out this week. Now that we pastafarians have our own bible, we'd like equal time in the public schools. Let's really teach the controversy. Can I get a Ramen? (Amazon/BN)
