The Tampa Tribune featured the FSM Holiday display in today’s paper, front page.

The sign says “A closed mouth catches no noodly appendages.”

And here’s the Christian nativity display that started all of this:

What do you think — next year, will the Florida Capitol allow any religious displays?

Thanks to Jay Nelson for the photos.

Florida Capital approves Pastafarian Holiday display

Published December 22nd, 2013 by Bobby Henderson

Equality

Great news! The Florida Capitol building has endorsed our religion by allowing an FSM Holiday display on its grounds.

The Florida Capitol building just made a move that Sarah Palin is likely to interpret as a hostile affront in the so-called “war on Christmas,” approving a religious statue from the Pastafarian group of their deity the Flying Spaghetti Monster to be included in the Capitol’s holiday displays.

Happy Holidays everyone! I want to share a collection of my favorite displays this season.

But first, check out what is to my knowledge the first ChrisFSMas song, composed by Rade – who, incidentally, makes his home in the same town (Hallein, Austria) as F.X. Gruber, who composed Silent Night.

Now that you’re in a Holiday mood, here are the displays:

Possibly my favorite this year, here’s Scott and Jeanette’s knitted tree-topper.

It would not feel like ChrisFSMas without a festive and historically accurate Nativity scene – this one, courtesy of Dmitry:

Here’s an ornament spotted on Dmitry’s Holiday tree:

Pennsylvanian Pastafarians fight for Holiday Display

Published November 30th, 2012 by Wayne

Holiday is the most important celebration of the year not only for Pastafarians worldwide but indeed, for everybody. It is the one day of the year where we are all Touched by His Noodly Appendages and we commemorate…well, nothing at all really, but that isn’t the point. Understanding this, the Most Irreverend Minister Tracy McPherson of the Pennsylvanian Pastafarians and her Noodly Flock have come together in request for a display celebrating Holiday.

Here is the link for the original speech given by Tracy:

And the second speech:

Being of course the world’s largest and most prominent non-religion that has a deity who is truly edible and Full of Complex Carbohydrates, there has been much media coverage of the request for Holiday displays:

http://www.examiner.com/article/pastafarians-fight-county-commissioners-for-holiday-display

http://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Pasta-loving-church-tests-Pa-holiday-display-4073601.php

Unfortunately, the County Commissioners have not been Touched, and the request has been refused. However, the battle for reason continues. Tracy is pushing to get an appearance on the Daily Show with John Stewart, and you can show your support by emailing [email protected]

Here is an update pasted from Tracy’s facebook page, Evangelical Pastafarianism, on the refusal:

“UPDATE: West Chester, PA – Despite many phone calls and emails of support, as well as statements by Pastafarian supporters for Holiday Tree and from atheist supporters for the Tree of Knowledge, commissioners Farrell and Costello rejected t

he motion to nullify Resolution 58-10 which was passed in 2010 and stops all displays except the Jewish menorah, the Christian nativity, and select “secular” christmas symbols picked by the commissioners such as a wreath, a tree, candy canes, santa, and a choo-choo train.Commissioner Cozzone courageously voted to nullify the resolution in favor of a more inclusive display. We thank her for that. However, since her two colleagues voted against it, the motion did not pass.As your minister, I am now exploring legal options to bring equality to this county. I will post a video of today’s speech as soon as I am able. It included several moving passages from Our Scriptures.”

Thank you Minister Tracy, truly, You are Covered In Sauce, and Have Been Touched By His Noodly Appendages! R’amen!

Hello, my name is Daniel (devoted Pastafarian).

I challenged my Gran to make an FSM cake for my 18th, and I’ve attached the result to this email. I thought it turned out rather well.

Awesome!

I’m happy to see that our religion continues to spread around the world.  Welcome to our friends in Colombia.

We are truly blessed by his Noodly Appendages.

Purchase the Gospel

An elaborate spoof on Intelligent Design, The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is neither too elaborate nor too spoofy to succeed in nailing the fallacies of ID. It's even wackier than Jonathan Swift's suggestion that the Irish eat their children as a way to keep them from being a burden, and it may offend just as many people, but Henderson puts satire to the same serious use that Swift did. Oh, yes, it is very funny. -- Scientific American.
