Atheist Wins Right to Wear
Religious Pasta Strainer" in ID
Photo
Austrian atheist Niko Ahn supports the Church of the Fig" g _ ti
Monster, a joke religion conjured up by atheists who say their make-
believe stories are no better or worse than any traditional church' s. In
aooc, to make a point about his faiths sanctity compared to others, Aim
asked to wear a pasta strainer on his head for his driver' s license photo.
Austrian citizens are only allowed to wear headgear in state IDs for
religious purposes, so Aim, a Spaghetti Monster "pastafarian," argued
that a colander is his "religious headgear."
This week, after avoiding Aim for three years and even making him
submit to a psychiatric examination, the Austrian government caved.
Aim now has a valid Austrian drivers license, complete with colander.

Let us pray,

Our saucer which art in a colander, draining be Your noodles. Thy noodle come, Thy meatballness be done on earth, as it is meaty in heaven. Give us this day our daily sauce, and forgive us our lack of piracy, as we pirate and smuggle against those who lack piracy with us. And lead us not into vegetarianism, but deliver us from non-red meat sauce. For thine is the colander, the noodle, and the sauce, forever and ever.
R'Amen.

As far as I understand it, pastafarians allow you to have several religions. Just stay true to the FSM, and all shall be well.

"submit to a psychiatric examination"
so when is every other religious person gonna get the same treatment?
#250 to #191 - anon (09/05/2012) [-]
I'm not against his right to believe in whatever he want.
But to compare any thousands year old religion to an admitedly joke religion is something make most people say "Are you ******* nuts?"

I mean, we are not sure what happened thousands years ago, and many people have been repeating what they believe, but it's clear someone made the pastafarian religion recently...

Mormonism and Scientology were both created pretty recently.

I'm a Christian, but I support this man all the way.

I do not support him necessarily because of him being allowed to wear a pasta strainer, but to prove a point. If Jews, Muslims and so on shall be allowed to wear what they want because its their Religion, then he should to. IMO no one should be allowed to wear any religious scarf, hat or etc. because ID photos should be just neutral an not anything covering your head at all.

How does an atheist become religious and still be an atheist?
