    Austrian Driver's Religious Headgear Strains Credulity

    An Austrian atheist has won the right to be shown on his driving-licence photo wearing a pasta strainer as "religious headgear".

    Niko Alm first applied for the licence three years ago after reading that headgear was allowed in official pictures only for confessional reasons.

    Mr Alm said the sieve was a requirement of his religion, pastafarianism.

    P.Z. Meyers:

    The only thing that wasn't fairly done here is that the authorities required that he submit to a psychological evaluation to determine if he was sane enough to drive. Do they do that to every person who insists on wearing a yamulke or turban or hijab or pope hat or squid on their head? I think they should.

    Hehe I love the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. If you ever want a good laugh you should read The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

    "WHILE PASTAFARIANISM IS the only religion
    based on empirical evidence, it should also be
    noted that this is a faith-based book. Attentive
    readers will note numerous holes and contradictions
    throughout the text; they will even
    find blatant lies and exaggerations. These have
    been placed there to test the reader's faith."

    Hehe, so funny.

    I read the article and had to laugh! It makes me think that "religious clothing" is more for show and the "hey! look, Im real different from you, and you must accept me!" factor...

    Thank the FSM for his noodly appendages, for I have partaken and tasted his goodness.

    R'amen (so be it)..
