Pastafarian services advertised at German town limits

A reader writes, "In Germany, churches promote the times of their masses on signs at the town entrances. Now, for the first time, the 'Church Of The Flying Spaghetti Monster' in Templin/Germany was allowed to put sign there as well: 'Fridays, 10am: Noodle mass'."

  1. There is but one God, and Ramen is his prophet.

  2. And lo, one of the noodle host, Penne, was cast from the Great Pot into the Gas Burner below.

    And it was Al Dente.

    Forgive my ignorance, but I always assumed that this was a "joke" religion and there was no physical church with masses etc... that was established as a bit of a foil for those things where you have to declare a religion, or where religion is granted "extra" rights or exemptions.

    Apparently I'm wrong?

    Why do I get the feeling that in 2k years someone'll be fighting wars over this?

  4. The religion is fairly young, so it's still mostly cohesive and hasn't really splintered yet. It will, though, and my money is on the kind of noodle sauce as the defining divisive element.

    Die, you filthy Marinaran!
    Alfredan is a religion of peace.

    Butter and parmesean is the one true sauce, and all who disagree with me are either possessed by demons or are demons themselves. The flying spaghetti monster told me so in a dream. You can't prove that he didn't, so it must be true!

    Anyway, I'm off to blow up a Marinaran church, and get my 72 meatballs in paradise.
