Crackergate!

Wow, those Muslims are really overreacting to a simple cartoo-- hey, did someone just kidnap a magic biscuit?!

Wow, those Muslims are really overreacting to a simple cartoo-- hey, did someone just kidnap a magic biscuit?!

Remember that big commotion awhile back about the Danish cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed, and how most normal people saw the reaction from the more extreme corners of the Muslim community and shook their heads, wondering what hope there was for the human race?

Turns out that Catholic crazy can go toe to toe with Islamic crazy without breaking a sweat.

Some of you may have already heard about this by now, but I figured I would add to the pointing and laughing (alternating with banging my head against the wall).  It seems a student at the University of Central Florida attended a Catholic service and, instead of ingesting his blessed Jeez-It, took the magic wafer home with him.  This drew a lot of Christian love and compassion seething bile, calls for expulsion, and even a few death threats.

The story was picked up by an appropriately astonished PZ Myers, which attracted the ire of the already apoplectic head of the “Catholic League”, Bill Donahue.  Now Bill-Do is mounting a campaign to get Dr. Myers disciplined or even removed from his position at the University of Minnesota.

All over a GODDAMN CRACKER.

Just a quick reminder folks…this is the 21st Century.  This stuff is happening in the United States of America.  I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry.

If you’d like to send a letter to U of M President Robert Bruininks in support of Dr. Myers, PZ has posted his address.
