I hope the film is admitted into festivals and finds wide distribution. Nice work, Mike. Happy Holidays everyone!
Thanks to Lena for sharing with us her festive pasta wreath, to Matthew for sharing his beautiful tree, and to Gail for the beautiful artwork. Reminder — you can create a festive Holiday card with personalized message here. It takes only a few minutes and costs nothing. There are some new designs this year. Halloween is one of the few days Pastafarians can walk around in traditional dress pirate regalia free from judgement and persecution. All in all, it is a prime evangelism opportunity — I hope that everyone makes the best of it and enjoys the day.
But if you walk in wearing it — if it is clear that this headgear is truly a serious part of your traditional Pastafarian beliefs, as you are claiming — then they are less likely to make trouble. Allow me to confirm that the wearing of a Colander is a tradition in the Pastafarian faith. Not all followers dress so formally, but it is a common practice for us to do so while making official identification documents.
Believers over the years have sometimes unfortunately experienced resistance, mockery, or even discrimination for simply following the guidelines of their religion. Thankfully case law has repeatedly affirmed that believers have a constitutionally-protected right to wear such clothing in nearly all public situations including: work, school, while taking identification photos, even in the courtroom — provided that the clothing does not cause undo harm.
That is to say, that religious clothing is with very few exceptions a protected right. We, the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, are not a litigious group but of course we, along with the ACLU and others, have an interest in defending the individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and the laws of the United States. What is Kiva?
Kiva is a organization that lets us give small loans to people in the third world that need help starting small business. We make small, interest-free loans towards the projects we support, and Kiva combines them to fund the loan to the person who wants to build a small workshop, farm, restaurant, fruit stand, etc. These are interest-fee loans in places like Cambodia, Peru, Uganda — places where traditional bank lending to the poor is unavailable or predatory.
Kiva ensures that the loans are paid out and that the money is paid back. A lot of us feel this is the best way of bringing economic growth to the poorest areas. Nice work everyone! Scientists in Portugal have found spaghetti-like structures in neutron stars, showing more evidence of His Noodly Appendage at work:.
About a kilometer below the surface of a neutron star, atomic nuclei are squeezed together so close that they merge into clumps of nuclear matter, a dense mixture of neutrons and protons. These as-yet theoretical clumps are thought to be shaped like blobs, tubes or sheets, and are named after their noodle look-alikes, including gnocchi, spaghetti and lasagna. Even deeper in the neutron star, the nuclear matter fully takes over. You can read more about it here at Science News. Enjoying legal protection to dress in Pirate Regalia at work. Let me share this article written by Daniel Dowdy for the Rutgers Journal of Law and Religion about employment protections for Pastafarians in the workplace.
For all of us who want to take off every Friday from work without fear of reprisal religious discrimination this is important. Mr Dowdy goes into detail about the history of the Church and what if any allowances can reasonably be asked of employers, citing decades of law. I was blown away. Your newly hired employee, Toni, has just walked into your office on her first day at Meerkat Manufacturing, the private corporation where you serve as a mid-level manager. On her head is a large metal colander, the same kind you have under your sink at home.
