Think about how Christianity would look if it had sprung up suddenly in the last 50 years without the proceeding millenniums of mass indoctrination and social power it has enjoyed. It would seem highly rational and logical as a new concept I am sure! I don't see why believing in aliens is any more insane than believing wafers turn to actual flesh after a priest has put a magic spell on it.
I'd rather see people to continue to protest against it, for two very valid reason:
1. To make as many people as possible aware that its run by nutcases, so the numbers stay down.
2. To ensure it doesn't get religion and charitable status in Ireland
