Holy War!

An antique store in Girardville, Pennsylvania (near Philly, IIRC), has a statue of a pirate by the front door. Not just any pirate. A girl pirate, complete with breasts and cleavage and everything. That's not sitting with the local moral loudmouth (via PZ):

'I believe that it's indecent. I guess it would categorized as soft porn. If there is a definition of that I would call it soft porn,' said Father Edward Commolly.

Father Commolly commanded the owners to remove it.

'He pointed to the statue and very dictatorially and said, 'I curse you. I curse this place. I want to see this destroyed. I want her destroyed,'' said pirate owner Peggy Kanigoski.
Now, normally, an uptight religious nut going about cursing things is cause only for amusement. But not in this case, for he has blasphemed a pirate.

Pirates, of course, are "divine beings" according to the followers of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (may you be touched by His Noodly Appendage). This is nothing less than a full throated assault on the beliefs of Pastafarians everywhere. In the spirit of Bill Donohue and his lot, I believe the FSM should order His faithful to respond in kind.

Watch out for flying meatballs, Father Commolly!
