It’s UK 2011 census time. Today, I came across this story about a series of census campaign posters got banned because some were concerned that the usage of the phrase “for God’s sake” would be offensive. The posters could be found here.
I was inspired to make today’s doodle a call to action: for Flying Spaghetti Monster’s sake, let’s all do the right thing.
Let’s all try to be as accurate as we could in filling the census, so no one is wasting my hard-earn money that had been paid as tax – and oh my Flying-Spaghetti-Monster, I have paid a bloody awful lot! I DO care where that money will be put into use. It is no good to give the impression that as a society in a whole, we are more religious than we actually are, which will then grant someone the excuse to waste my money as a mean to gain popularity and power, when that money could be better used on something practical and useful, such as improving science education.
If you are not religious, please pretty please just say so, even if you are a Pastafarian. You could be a Pastafarian, and yet not religious, just as many Christians would proudly declare so. Google search the phrase “Christian but not religious” then you will see.
Be true to yourself. Simply tick “Not Religious” if you really are not that religious, for Flying Spaghetti Monster’s sake.
( And of course, if you truely are a religious Pastafarian, you should say so for Flying Spaghetti Monster’s sake, too. )
