They’re not real atheists

“Praise the FSM” was painted on two churches on Sunday night in Bend, Oregon.

The graffiti apparently refers to The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, an online group of people who claim they do not believe in religion but rather in what they call Pastafarianism.

Local church groups say it's one thing to not pick a religion, but it's another for these vandals to pick a fight.

Don’t worry though, the people who did this were not true atheists. We all know that tagging a church is against our secret atheist code book.  It was probably just some wayward Christian youth looking for attention. Or not – if it’s one of us then we own it and should do something about it.

The Friendly Atheist has a chip in fund working to help pay for the cleanup. Pay a visit to his blog and make a donation. I’m in for $10.
