idiot alert • North Carolina 16 year old went to school displaying the attire of his faith. A pirate eye patch and an inflatable cutlass. And in violation of his rights to freedom of speech and religion he was expelled for refusing to de-patch. Bryan Killian says, his pirate regalia is part of his faith — the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Whose “Pastafarian” members worship a sentient, airborne clump of noodles and meatballs, originated in a letter to the Kansas school board urging it to add the religion to its plans to teach evolution and intelligent design side by side. In it’s belief system pirates are believed to be divine beings and blames global warming on the disappearance of the buccaneers.
