First, some background.


The Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM) is the deity of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, or Pastafarianism.



In New Zealand, Pastafarian representatives are authorized to officiate weddings.[4][5][6] However, in the United States, a federal judge has ruled that the "Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster" is not a real religion.[7] In August 2018 the Dutch Council of State also ruled that Pastafarianism is not a religion.[8]


Excuse me? WTF? How can the goberment tell me my god isn't real?


Pastafarian tenets are presented both on Henderson's Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster website, where he is described as "prophet", and in The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, written by Henderson in 2006. The central belief is that an invisible and undetectable Flying Spaghetti Monster created the universe. Pirates are revered as the original Pastafarians.[12] Henderson asserts that a decline in the number of pirates over the years is the cause of global warming.[10] The FSM community congregates at Henderson's website to share ideas about the Flying Spaghetti Monster and crafts representing images of it.[3]

Right now, our government, and more importantly the people stand by while this blatant oppression continues. Absolutely sick.





I want to see politicians and their constituents recognize this crime against humanity.

I am with you on this one.
NO federal judge should be able to define your religion or your beliefs!
It does appear your trouble with the government is coming to an end.
from your op



In December 2011, Pastafarianism was one of the multiple denominations given equal access to placing holiday displays on the Loudoun County courthouse lawn, in Leesburg, Virginia.


Just in time for "holiday".

Thank you saucy brother.

While that is a start, it's not total victory.

However, it will make for a very merry holiday.

I too prefer that adaptation.

Luckily we haven't had to many denominations pervert our message like other real fake religions.

Either way, may your future be blessed by big spicy meatballs. amen.

I think the idea of "holiday" is one we could all get behind.
Happy Holiday would offend no one, would it?

All joking aside, I typically say happy holidays anyways.

I don't know anyone's religion, and since so many fall into that time frame it's a safe bet.

That said I don't know why someone gets offended if you say have a merry Christmas.

I'm not a Christian, if someone says it to me I'm just like "thanks, I'll enjoy my day off"

I have never understood that line of offended thinking.
Do school kids really care if it is christmas break or passover break or kwanza break or winter break? All the kids care about is the time off.

I think some people just like being offended, they make sport of it.

Which is certainly not what I'm doing with this thread. Very different.

People offended=funny

People oppressed= Less funny at best, but mostly not funny.

The government didn't declare your noodly thing doesn't exist, they just don't recognize your religion in any official capacity.

Go on and practice your faith in any way you see fit so long as you don't infringe on the rights of others. Boom done.

If Joel Olstein Inc. is tax exempt.... So should any religion.

If you don't like that idea, maybe we should rethink it all.

I started this out of satire, but then your comment got me thinking.
