Church Vandals

Churches are vandalized and left with a message to praise the FSM

When it comes to cowardly acts, vandalism is right up there with kicking kittens. It doesn't take a lot of guts to tag a building with a can of Krylon. So we can't help but wonder what was going through the minds of the gutless, kitten kickers who recently targeted a pair of churches on opposite ends of town, tagging the Westside Church and the eastside Christian Life Center. The vandals left a message for the churches, "Praise the FSM" in reference to the Flying Spaghetti Monster, a religious parody originally conceived of by an OSU physics student. While there is plenty of room for debate about the role and influence of organized religion in modern society, particularly in the political realm, there's no better way to undermine your critique than to couch your message in a crime. WTF.
