A Blasphemous Bake Sale in Oklahoma

Last week, the Secular Student Alliance affiliate at East Central University in Oklahoma held a Blasphemy Bake Sale!

The cost for the items was your soul… or your best offer :)

This. Is. Awesome:

Cookie-pops with “dirty” words on them.

“Sinfully sweet” cupcakes bearing blasphemous messages.

Flying Spaghetti Monster Rice Krispies Treats!

I don’t have a soul, but I’ll offer my future first-born for one of those Fetus Cookies.

    My alma mater!  I’ve never been prouder!

    I want to know what they used to make those FSM rice krispy treats. They don’t look like rice krispies, but they are awesome.

    • Myra

      Maybe rice noodles?  I agree, they’re awesome!

      It looks like crispy noodles (like in Chinese food)… the eyes are malt balls cut in half.  I can’t make out what the meatballs are, though… they’re bumpy.  Very clever!!

    You know, I’ve got to say that I think the fetus cookies are taking it a bit too far. Baby eating jokes are all well and good in the atheist blogosphere, but this is supposed to be outreach to let people know that the group exists, and maybe a bit of what they’re all about, and they’re offering fetus cookies? I’m all for taking the wind out of the sails of the anti-abortion crowd, but I don’t think this does that, and I don’t think even the most ardent supporter of choice wants people thinking about eating fetuses. There’s nothing religious about a fetus, and there are countless people who love the children their fetuses have become, or for whom abortion was a difficult and painful decision, or who still mourn over a miscarriage. I don’t think the fetus ought to be fetishized by either side in the debate, and I certainly don’t find it a particularly positive message to be sending. Maybe I’m being overly sensitive, maybe my sense of humor is lacking, but I don’t think its funny, and I don’t think it makes the group look good to passersby.

    Could be a great funding raising opportunity. I would love to go door to door with these or maybe setup a table at a Walmart store since they let religious groups do that!

    I don’t think the fetus cookies really provide a positive message from the secular community. I of course support abortion rights, but I think that crosses the “don’t be a dick” line

    News of atheist activism in Oklahoma continues to astound me. I grew up in “rapture ready” Tulsa during the 1970′s, and nothing of the sort happened back then.

    I have an idea: Rapture cookies, shaped like empty suits of clothes.

    Good work, on the whole!  I agree, not so enthused about the fetus cookies.  The FSM treats – fun!

    Hey guys,

    My name is Sarah, and I’m the president of this chapter. I just wanted to explain the fetus cookies. It’s not about abortion at all, more so the idea that nothing should be sacred, and everything should be up for discussion. The baby-eating atheist joke runs rampant on our mostly-baptist campus. They were actually one of the favorite treats featured, as most people knew we weren’t commenting on abortion. The idea was to make things that most people would consider blasphemous, like eating a fetus. I think more people were offended by the idea of giving their soul for a cookie than anything else, but it was mostly to start conversation. We also had “four letter cookies” in bags so that way the four letter words were not in plain view of people who didn’t want to read them. There were also unicorn cookies and plain “virgin” cookies for people who wanted something sweet without the sins. I think it was pretty successful, and we collected 12 souls and a nice chunk of money by donations.

    I am not saying you have to agree with the use of a fetus cookie, but the message wasn’t about abortion and we made that clear.

    Also, if you are interested in how I made the FSM treats, I just explained it to a woman on our facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/ecok.ssa). I did get the idea from the evil scientist blog listed above, but I made a few changes to make them a little easier to make.
