'I'm a Pastafarian': Man claims his religion forces him to wear a sieve on his head

 
 
The true faith of the Progressive Left...Coming soon to a liberal college campus near you!

A man who wears a sieve on his head for religious reasons has been allowed to wear his bizarre headgear on his official identity card.

Prankster Lukas Novy, from Brno in the Czech Republic, claims that his Pastafarian faith means he has to wear the sieve at all times.

Brno City Hall spokesman Pavel Zara explained: ‘The application complies with the laws of the Czech Republic where headgear for religious or medical reasons is permitted if it does not hide the face.’

Novy claims to be a member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, when emerged in the USA as spoof on organised religion.

According to its tongue-in-cheek website their ‘only dogma… is the rejection of dogma’.

Members claim to believe that an invisible alien made of spaghetti and meatballs created the universe after ‘drinking heavily.’
 
Officials ruled that turning down Novy’s request would be a breach of the country’s religious equality laws.

The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster wrote to the Kansas School Board asking for the Pastafarian version of intelligent design to be taught to schoolchildren as a way of criticising the intelligent design campaigners.

By professing belief in a supernatural entity composed of pasta and meatballs, Henderson called on ‘Pastafarianism’ to be given equal time in science classrooms alongside Christian theory.

Word rapidly spread and the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (CFSM) now has thousands of followers, mainly on college campuses and in Europe.

Pastafarians celebrate every Friday as a holy day – and consider pirates ‘absolute divine beings’.
