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.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 posted my husband and I’s tree topper on my Facebook account. To my surprise, a devout and particularly humorless Christian liked it. Clearly, His Noodly Appendage touches those who don’t even seek it. May we all receive a generous helping of His slow cooked grace this ChriFSMas season.

Happy Holidays,
– Tiara

I spent this Christmas with my family at my Catholic grandparents’ house. Little did they know, while they had a ceramic nativity scene displayed beneath their tree, a tree topper in honor of His Noodliness sat atop ours.

Cheers,

My mostly Christian of coworkers made this wonderful image of his noodlines for me so that I would not feel left out during the season.  He is made from office and break room supplies.  I will forever cherish this.

Wow, this is genuinely touching. Is it just me or have Christians embraced the FSM this Season?

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.
