Online Worship

Published January 19th, 2008 by Bobby Henderson

I’m quoted a few times:

Pastafarianism is a sensible alternative religion for some people. We offer spirituality and community, without the traps of dogma; no one has ever killed in the name of Pastafarianism, for instance.

And this one:

Some people feel mocked, but that was never my intent. I’m all for freedom of religion. I have not problems with Christians or creationism ideology, to the extent that they keep their beliefs out of public policy. There is no state-sponsored religion-some people don’t want to accept it.

And the best one:

Religion doesn’t have to make sense. You have to have faith. There’s all sorts of things that don’t make any sense in FSM. It’s fine. I contradict myself all the time. You can get away with anything in the religion business.

Here’s the article, you may find it interesting.

(By the way, my Physics degree is Bachelor of Science, not Arts – not that it matters).
