Default Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster



The Czech Republic is now the second country in Europe to recognize pasta strainers as religious headgear.

The Daily Mail reported Thursday that Lukas Novy from Brno in the Czech Republic has won the right to wear a pasta strainer on his head at all times in observance of his faith in the Flying Spaghetti Monster. His official photo ID now includes his pasta strainer hat.

“The application complies with the laws of the Czech Republic where headgear for religious or medical reasons is permitted if it does not hide the face,” Brno City Hall spokesman Pavel Zara explained.

Czech media reported that Novy is an IT professional, member of the Pirate Party, and devout Pastafarian.

Entrepreneur Niko Alm also won the right to wear a pasta strainer for his Austrian ID photo in 2011, after a three year battle with authorities.

But many countries still refuse to acknowledge the Church of the Flying Spagetti Monster. Pastafarians in Belgium and Poland attempted to have their pasta strainer hats recognized, but were rebuffed by authorities. In the United States earlier this year, a Motor Vehicle Commission office in New Jersey called the police on a man who refused to remove a pasta strainer from his head.

Members of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster believe the theory of gravity is actually a hoax. Things stay on the ground rather than float away because the Flying Spaghetti Monster holds them down with his noodly appendages.

“Some claim that the church is purely a thought experiment, satire, illustrating that Intelligent Design is not science, but rather a pseudoscience manufactured by Christians to push Creationism into public schools. These people are mistaken. The Church of FSM is real, totally legit, and backed by hard science. Anything that comes across as humor or satire is purely coincidental,” the church’s official website explains.

Pastafarianism is a real religion.

(I love that reference)

8 Detained in Flying Spaghetti Monster Ritual

A "pasta procession" by the Russian followers of the not-so-serious Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster was dispersed in Moscow on Saturday by riot police and Orthodox activists, the prankster movement said.

The Moscow police press service told RIA Novosti that eight "Pastafarians" were detained for "attempting to hold an unsanctioned rally."

The Church, that also calls its flock Pastafarian, was created in 2005 by Bobby Henderson, a self-described "hobo" from Oregon, according to the movement's website.

Pastafarians wear sieves on their heads, worship The Flying Spaghetti Monster and believe that their religion was founded by pirates, their website says. They consider every Friday a religious holiday and do not take themselves seriously, it says.

Russian Pastafarians announced a "pasta procession" in Moscow and St. Petersburg to celebrate the birthday of U.S. actor Robert De Niro who played a character nicknamed "Noodles" in Sergio Leone's 1984 mafia drama Once Upon A Time In America, according to their web-posted statement.

However, Moscow authorities did not sanction the procession which was disrupted by riot police and activists with the God's Will Orthodox group headed by Dmitri Enteo, according to a message by Russian Pastafarians on a social networking website.

God's Will has held numerous rallies against Russian gays and the Pussy Riot punk rock band, whose two members were sentenced to two years in jail for hooliganism last August.

"Guys, because of the dispersion by riot police and provocations by Enteo and Co the Ramen [noodles] eating arrangement is canceled," the message said.

"We were detained for simply walking," a message posted by another Pastafarian said. "In particular, I was taken in for a sieve on my head."
