Flying Spaghetti Monster Joins Baby Jesus In Holiday Display

"A college atheist group has set up a Flying Spaghetti Monster display at the Wisconsin State Capitol to make a point about religious expression on public property.

The Atheists, Humanists, and Agnostics group at the University of Wisconsin set up the satirical religious display alongside a "Festivus" pole and a "Winter Solstice Nativity" scene featuring Charles Darwin, Albert Einstein and Mark Twain that was set up by the Freedom From Religion Foundation.

"The rotunda is getting very cluttered," said Annie Laurie Gaylor, co-president of the Freedom from Religion Foundation. "But if a devotional nativity display is allowed, then there must be 'room at the inn' for all points of view, including irreverency and free thought.""* The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break it down.
