Godless Liberals Walk in the Pasadena Doo Dah Parade

The Godless Liberal Social Society joined with Backyard Skeptics in the 2011 Pasadena Doo Dah Parade. We formed a synchronized procession of Jesus’. We wielded pizza spatulas instead of crosses. Our group walked before a giant, eight foot diameter pizza and promoted the fictitious Cheesus Chrust Pizza Company. We danced, chanted, let our freak flags fly and were rewarded with the coveted Czar’s Trophy!

For those not familiar with the Pasadena Doo Dah Parade, it’s the self-proclaimed "twisted sister" of the Pasadena Rose Parade. A yearly gathering of hippies, burners and local residents that’s known for creatively odd costumes, political statements, kitsch, flying tortillas and marshmallows, performance art and music.

We had a fantastic time and generally speaking the crowd was very supportive. That said, there were those that didn’t care for our blasphemous display. Most notably, a group of fundies screaming bible verses while holding giant signs that read; "Jesus Saves From Hell" and "Repent -- Read the Bible". The fundies did their best to poop on the party, but ultimately became part of the show. We also received a few “booooo’s” from the crowd. One good Christian woman greeted us with “the bird”. Fortunately, her pre-teen daughter was on hand to physically put a stop to her offending gesture (skip to 6:07 in the video… lol, way to go, Mom).

BTW… I was told the Czar’s Trophy is ‘Best of Show’! Can anyone confirm or deny. I can’t find any info about that trophy online. Did we really win ‘Best of Show’… damn!!!

:lol: I love this so much! My daughter once asked me, "What does the JC in JCPenney store name stand for?" Then before I could answer she said, "Jesus Crust Penney!" So now that's what we call it. So of course I had to get her to look at the Cheesus Chrust Pizza Company thing.
