It is difficult to view this as not absurd Lukas Novy can wear Pastafarian Colander in ID photo Apparently the holy colander is revered because his noodlyness boiled for us inside it. Hence, a good Pastafarian wears it on his head as a symbol of devotion to the precepts of the CFSM. But, it is a farce religion, a satire, not like the venerable genuine religions that are centuries old and have earned respect through age and violence. Why should a bogus religion be treated like a real one? Is this fair?
