Brian Duncan was nice enough to interview me for a Helium.com article.
Q) Many people claim that Pastafarianism was created solely as an assault
to the Christians. How do you respond to this?
A) FSM was not created as an assault on Christianity or any other religion.
You could make the argument that it was to assault dogma and religion’s
disrespect of the separation of church and state. But, no matter how it
started, FSM is, today, seen as a legitimate religion by thousands of its
members. Many of us get something out of being Pastafarians; we enjoy being
part of this community. If it offends Christians, that was not our
intention. I like Jesus. I think he would have been a Pastafarian, had he
known about the FSM in his time.

Anyone else notice the Scientology ads all over that page? Ha.
