Pastafarian minister sworn into office

Published January 6th, 2014 by Bobby Henderson

sworn-in

Encouraging news, reported by The Observer out of Dunkirk, New York:

A unique style of headwear was present during newly-seated Pomfret Town Council member Christopher Schaeffer’s oath of office Thursday afternoon, but it wasn’t intended to keep his head warm.

Schaeffer wore a colander (a strainer typically used to drain water from spaghetti) while Town Clerk Allison Dispense administered the oath of office to him before the board’s reorganizational meeting. When the OBSERVER asked afterward why he wore a colander on his head, Schaeffer said he was a minister with an even more unique organization – the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

This may be the first openly Pastafarian sworn into office. For sure, the first to be sworn in wearing a colander.

I imagine Council member Schaeffer is getting a lot of heat because of the news coverage. Some people will see it as obnoxious or a sign that he’s not taking the oath of office seriously. But I am completely confident that Schaeffer will distinguish himself as a Council member of the highest caliber.

Scaeffer’s statement at the end of the article says it all:

“Mostly, I’m just looking forward to making sure that the town is run smoothly and we meet the needs of all of our citizens,” he said. “If anybody ever has any concerns or questions, I hope they contact me, because I want to make sure that everyone is represented.”

        Yeah Jesus, do that one where you walk on water again. I really liked that one. Maybe this time, try doing it out in the middle of the ocean somewhere. Don’t worry about taking a life jacket. If something goes wrong, your daddy will probably save you. Just like the last time when people started getting cross with you.

      Why is there no picture with your post?

      • The Sauceror says:

        I’m guessing it’s because even the son of gawd can’t make that happen. Miracles are real, but even fantasy has its limits.

      Usually when people believe they’re Jesus, they have mental health problems and require time in a mental asylum.

          What, time in an asylum?
