NASA grounds Pope

NASA has received the whole-hearted support of reader James Langford in banning Endeavour crew member Umberto Guidoni from delivering a extra-terrestrial message from the Pope:

I don't know what a 'papal missive' is (or really care) but I am glad to see NASA have done this. Religious nonsense and intollerance has no place in any part of mankind's future. Also let us all remember Yuri Gagarin's words when he, as the first man to look down on Earth from space, said "Where is God? I do not see him"

Of course he couldn't. How are you going to spot Larry Ellison from that distance? While we're on the subject of godless commies, let's have some input from Ed VanVliet:

Re: "As the Endeavour possee includes a representative of the godless ex-Soviet Union and - worse - a Canadian, the administration's reasoning appears sound enough."

The ex-Soviet Union (Russia) is a diverse nation that does not have the monolithic godless point of view that the official stance of the soviet union brand of communism had.

When you make a joke like that it should have a basis in reality. Otherwise it is just a fictional story (or ranting).

Or just a joke...
