My religion is the best religion EVER.  
So, yesterday I was having a look around the Flying Spaghetti Monster website and there was this absolute gem.

Last Friday - Talk Like a Pirate Day - the Central Arkansas Pastafarians interrupted and caused the discontinuation of a Westboro Baptist Church hate-demonstration.
Westboro Baptist Church is best known for picketing funeral processions of soldiers killed in the Iraq War, but they hate everyone who doesn’t share their literal interpretation of the Bible.

What do you do to make a bunch of soulless nutcases abandon their post at the Convention Center? Send in the pirates!

Yep, the cuckoo Phelps hate group walked the plank this morning after a happy bunch dressed like pirates and holding signs saying "God hates shrimp -- Leviticus" and "God hates cotton-polyester blends" stood opposite them at the corner of Markham and Scott streets. The group, made up of Central Arkansas Pastafarians, waved swords and growled "Arrghh!" in a manner that would have made Abbie Hoffman proud.

With cars honking and waving at the pirates and a TV crew giving them all the attention, the Phelps group -- with a child in tow, sadly -- picked up their "fag" epithets and went away. Pitiful.

How freaking awesome is it? Now that's the real deal.

Oh, Westboro Baptist were the fucktards who were putting out hateful fliers about my tiny high school in suburban New Hampshire. They were protesting the graduation because of a homosexual student who was on some MTV reality show about cheerleading, but he had graduated the year before, so it was dumb that they were planning on being there... Then after all the fliers and crap all over their website against my high school, they never showed up!

I had researched them for an article in my high school journal and fucktards is more or less what I had thought as soon as I got an idea of what they did. And if they protest like that they must really be completely dumb indeed ://

That is awesome. The world needs more fun pirates and less religious nutjobs. The world could also do with less real pirates who have been hijacking boats in the Indian Ocean lately.

I'd definitely be for less real pirates, more FSM pirates and waaay less nutjobs around *sigh*. And that's totally awesome indeed.
