Crazy Connie persecutes religious minority

Creature's picture irks Board of Ed member:
State Board of Education member Connie Morris took exception Wednesday to a picture of a made-up creature that satirizes the state's new science standards hanging on a Stucky Midd
The creature? The infamous Flying Spaghetti Monster. The beast was first described in a letter from Bobby Henderson to Board members, including Ms. Morris. He asked that his theory of creation be taught along with all other options, but the Board's response has been tepid.

"When we went into that classroom, students were looking at rock formations," Gamble said. "Connie stopped to talk to a teacher and I moved on. That was when I was aware of the flyer. I thought 'she's probably going to say something to the teacher.' "

Gamble said that when Morris saw the picture, she asked the principal, who was on the tour, to take it down. [Principal] Jantz did not comment for this report.
Neither did Morris. I hope to hear from Bobby Henderson soon. This sort of religious persecution shall not stand.
