Space alien cult sues the pope

The space alien Raelian cult has filed a lawsuit against the pope.

Among other charges, the suit alleges Pope Benedict violated human rights laws by claiming condoms don’t stop the spread of AIDS.

The controversial international Raelian movement is headed by race car-loving, alien-spotting, France-born Rael, who maintains his life mission is to prepare humanity to welcome its extraterrestrial creators.

The cult is best known for lying: in 2002 it claimed to have produced the world’s first cloned baby.


Raelians organize Go Topless protest

Coming up August 22: the National (USA) Go Topless Protest.

Go Topless has been around since 2007, and its big push is Go Topless Day, an annual event held on the Sunday closest to Aug. 26, which is Women’s Equality Day, the anniversary of the day women were given the right to vote.

Although Go Topless is focused on the laws in the U.S., its roots are, well, extraterrestrial in origin.

Both Gary and Abdulla are members of the Raelian religion, which believes that humans were created by advanced scientists known as the Elohim. The group is best known for its close ties to Clonaid, a human cloning company that claimed in 2002 to have created the first cloned human baby.

They say their beliefs in ETs are inspiring them to fight to make the right to bare breasts as fundamental as the right to bear arms.
